Who knew what we learned in high school math would come in so handy for interiors? Hexagonal tiles, rectangle shiplap, triangular millwork—and no need for a protactor! We love seeing geometrics come out in wooden details and tiles, hardwoods, and backsplashes. Shape is an easy way to add depth without adding fuss.

Geometric shapes grab our attention. They are visually intriguing, and draw our eyes to them. Often when paired with bright colors, clean white space makes the shapes and colors pop. But don't think geometrics are only for the bold statement makers; geometric shapes work so well with organic and natural elements. Neutral palates in geometric shapes keep the tones from becoming drab. Geometric shapes can also bring attention to the main attraction. A background pattern allows some other element, be it a fireplace or couch or even a stunning dress, take centerstage. Whether geometrics work as a tile on your floor or a duvet cover, they are clean in shape so they can take on the role of influencer or main event.
In fashion, geometrics work fabulously to bring a wow factor to an outfit. Pucci and other designers, especially Italian ones, play with more geometrics in a whole ensemble. You don't have to dive head first into a pool of geometrics if you're wary of drawing attention, bring attention with geometrics to something you love. Bright geometric earrings will show off your lovely face, for example. See? Math class is serving us better than we ever thought it would!
