Trending on Remodelista: The Geometry of Style, 5 Ways

February 2, 2018

Square tiles, u-shape faucets, window grids, and chalkboard backsplashes covered with mathematical formulas.

This week the Remodelista editors discovered modern eclecticism and geometric figures in some of their favorite interior spaces. Here are five design ideas to steal:

Cement Tiles

U-Shape Faucets

The U-shape faucet, favored by architects and designers alike for its timeless look, caught Alexa&#8\2\17;s eye this week. She rounds up \10 stylish versions (\1\1, actually—she got enthusiastic) in this week&#8\2\17;s \10 Easy Pieces post.

Leaded windows symmetrically arranged around a central arch draw the eye toward the trees and shrubbery outdoors, the greens echoed by fabrics on indoor furnishings.
