25 Awesome Rooms That Inspire You to Try Out Geometric Wallpaper

If you are a design aficionado, then the news of wallpaper making a grand comeback of sorts in the last few seasons is something you would already be aware of. But this summer, it is time to take this love for wallpaper in a striking and bold new direction, as it is time for the gorgeous, and at times dramatic, geometric wallpaper. Geo designs, style and décor are currently some of the top decorating trends, and combining this with the vivacious world of wallpaper definitely makes plenty of sense. Moving away from the floral patterns and intricate prints, geometric wallpaper blends pattern, sophistication and a striking visual appeal.

There are plenty of ways in which simple geometric wallpaper can make a big difference to a room, and often, you only need to cover a section of the large space in wallpaper to get the desired effect. From trendy living rooms to relaxing bedrooms, and from exceptional powder rooms to stylish kids’ spaces, geo wallpaper can be found everywhere. The 25 beautiful inspirations on display today will hopefully give you ideas on how you can bring this geometric magic into your home. And while we’re at it, maybe you will fall in love with a pattern or four as well!

Combine Color and Pattern

The beauty of wallpaper has always been its ability to bring several different attributes to the room without seeming out of place. This means you can add not just color but also texture and pattern to a contemporary space by simply adding a feature wall draped in wallpaper. Of course, the wallpaper you choose makes all the difference here, and geometric-patterned wallpaper can easily bring two of the three elements mentioned above. When most people think of geometric wallpapers, their mind naturally conjures up images of abstract patterns in neutral hues. But as you will see below, there is no dearth of options when it comes to colorful geo wallpaper!

Vivacious Contemporary Bedrooms

An accent wall in the bedroom is almost the norm these days, and if you are bored with just repainting the wall over and over again, then wallpaper is definitely the next best choice. Do not be afraid to try out bold new geometric patterns in the bedroom. If you feel that there is already too much color around, then just tone down on the décor and cut back on unnecessary accessories to give the room a less cluttered look. Stylish headboard walls draped in geometric wallpaper are part of some of the hottest bedroom decorating trends this summer, so be sure to give this a shot.

Energizing Interiors with Ease

Experimenting with geometric wallpaper in the bedroom or powder room is always a smart way to get your feet wet before you move on to more public spaces. But those confident enough about their decorating skills can give their living room a fun and dashing makeover by creating an accent feature clad in geo wallpaper. As we alluded to earlier, powder rooms are perfect places to try out new wallpaper trends, but you can scale things up and also transform your contemporary bathroom with some patterned beauty.
