It’s easy to get into this style because it features geometric shaped items in your home. Square shaped art pieces, like the ones in Outer Banks Squared, are the perfect add-ons for a geometric themed room. The versatility of these pieces is fabulous. There’s a lot you can do with them. Here are a few ideas below:


1. The Checkerboard 

This classic pattern is fun to try on a wall. Arrange the artwork in a larger square to look like a checkerboard. Coordinate with pieces that feature contrasting colors for the best impact. It’s perfect to go with floor or wall tiles. 


2. The Staircase

Can you display square art in non-square areas? Yes! You can arrange them in a triangular pattern known as the “staircase.” It’s a fun look to go for in a living room or hallway. You can even mount them under the stairs. 


3. A Quote Wall

Combine your square art with inspiring quote plaques, and you’ve got an instant mood booster.  It’s like your house gives you a pep talk every time you walk into the room! The texture from the words also create a nice three dimensional effect on the wall that will draw attention to the art.   


4. Mirror, Mirror

Last but not least, you can pair up your square art with other geometric shaped items in the room. Mirrors are a great example. Arrange mirror tiles in a checkered pattern with the art, or arrange the square art alongside a rectangular mirror on the wall. You can even decorate with circle or octagon mirrors to show off the different shapes! The key is to make their shapes stand out to reflect the theme for your guests. 

Decorating in the geometric style is easy and fun! If you’re looking for a way to freshen up your home, try it out yourself. You can see more square art in Outer Banks Squared - The Art Show at Seaside Art Gallery.
