Trend Watch: Geometric Jewelry and Interior Design
Geometry-inspired patterns and shapes have been a runaway trend over the past few years. Appearing in jewelry, clothing, and interior design, geometric style has a little something to offer everyone. If you're not sure how to incorporate geometric pieces into your personal style, start small and simple--a cute pair of earrings or a pretty throw pillow are excellent places to start.
Jewelry is one of the best places to turn when you're experimenting with a new (or recurring) trend. A funky bracelet can change the feel of your entire outfit--and quite possibly your mood! So be bold--try something a little avant guard. You may be surprised.

Geometric Interior Design:
Geometric design pieces are surprisingly versatile. While they may add to a midcentury modern, modern industrial, or ultra-modern design scheme, they can also complement a home with antique and classic pieces as well.
There are several ways to incorporate geometric style into your interior design theme. You can start small with fabric patterns and small accents--or go big with furnishings, rugs, and wallpaper. Some of the easiest geometric patterns to incorporate include: hexagons, diamonds, stripes, and Greek key patterns. Here are a few eye-catching pieces for the home:
