You can do just about anything with a space to make it look great, you can grab one subject, one theme, run with it and turn a blank space into something pretty amazing, you can mish-mash and turn out some really great looks as well. One I've never really considered using is geometric shapes and patterns to add something special, I suppose I'm not mathematically inclined, not that it takes a mathematician to design geometrically.
My favorite examples of using geometric shapes is through wall paper, check out the rooms pictured above and right below, the geometric patterns on wall paper lends a more vintage feel to the space than what one would normally think would happen, which is a more modern feel. There are of course other things to consider when using geometric shapes on wall paper however, such as, how it affects the geometric shapes in other places of the room. For example (above) how doe the wall paper affect the geometric patterned lamp shade or the rectangular twin frames hanging on the wall?
A mixture of geometric patterns and shapes are used (below) and the wallpaper seems to enhance this theme, how many geometric patterns and shapes can you spot in the room below? And when you take in the room as a whole how do you feel about the mixing of these circles, squares and other patterns? I think... it looks great in that positive-vibed, eccentric way.
