Geometric prints are taking over the design world. From runway fashion to company branding, we’re seeing kaleidoscopic designs pop up in lots of places. You may have seen our articles last year about the rising trend of geometrics in interior design. Now, we’re focusing on geometric walls loaded with triangles, rich tones, and modern accent pieces. These punchy prints in vibrant colors transform walls from the backdrop of a room to an eye-catching, mesmerizing focal point. Geometric walls give us a chance to playfully break design rules; they let us incorporate several bold colors and embrace asymmetry. We love the way the result can amplify modern furnishings or add a fun twist to mid-century modern design. Yes, geometric walls make a big statement. And that’s OK! As these designs are made with wallpaper, paint, or art, changing them is an easy switch once you’re ready for something new. Whether you’re looking for a soft ombre pattern for a nursery or a bold splash of color and shape in your dining room, here are 25 ideas for inspiring geometric walls to get you thinking about your next project.

25 Ideas for Geometric Walls

1. Mossy Tones

Vibrant color doesn’t have to mean neon. Soften the bold lines and angles of geometry by pairing them with colors found in nature.
