interior geometry // PINTEREST

We love Pinterest.  We use it for getting new decorating ideas, following trends and keeping track of things we like around the web.  (And no, this isn’t a paid ad for Pinterest!)  We pin almost every day which means we get a lot of repins too.  Repins can be a great way to see what’s trending out there so we thought why not take a look?  This week our repins are all about interior geometry.

Mid-Century/Asian-Inspired Screen

Our first pin is from an Architectural Digest article from 2015 highlighting an update to a Tokyo mid-century hotel.  What caught our eye (and the eye of our pinning public) was this amazing screen.  You can see why it’s been one of our most popular pins to date!

Cool Geometric Floor Coverings

Our next pin is this India Mahdavi carpet from a 2016 Interior Design Magazine article on new floor coverings.

Purple Palette + Geometric Cutouts

And here’s another one from Interior Design Magazine.  This time it’s the interior of a Kyoto hotel that inspired a repin.  We were drawn to the bright purple accents against the lush green trees outside.  But there is plenty of interior geometry as well.  We love the screen by the window and the one separating the living from the bedroom area.

 Geometric Brick Exterior

Our next pin is a great use of a basic material (painted brick) to create an interesting architectural detail – a screened patio that allows light in while also creating privacy.

Geometry or Chemistry?

These beaker planters evoke more of a chemistry vibe than geometry, but certainly it’s the triangular shape that attracted people to this DIY idea.
