Think outside of the box, and add curved design elements to your home!

Soften your interior design with curves.


Most home interiors have lots of straight lines and square – or almost square – corners. Hint: consider the shape of your tables, countertops, chairs, artwork, rugs and more.

Instead, why not think outside the box and add some curved design elements to your interior design plan?

Straight edges make a room seem clean and organized, but mixing in some curved contours can take away a feeling of austerity.

Rounded shapes add a sense of flexibility, grace, joyfulness, and luxury.

Consider all rounded shapes, such as circles, ovals, arcs, bows, ellipses, half moons and even helixes and amoeba profiles. These softer shapes will add a sense of flexibility, grace, joyfulness, and luxury to your home. And they add a natural, organic feel since many elements in nature have rounded edges.

Research even shows that we appreciate the look of curved surfaces. According to fastcodesign.com, people are far more likely to call a room beautiful when its design is round instead of square. Apparently, it’s hard-wired into our brains! And part of the reason we prefer curves is because they signal a feeling of safety.
 

Many elements in your home lend themselves to curved edges, including:
– Tables
– Sofas and ottomans
– Chairs
– Mirrors and other wall art
– Rugs
– Tile patterns
– Outdoor decks, porches and walkways
– Stenciled patterns on walls and ceilings
– Even curved walls, vaulted ceilings, and arched doorways

Take a swerve this season and add some curved design elements to your home.
