Linear Decorating Themes and Home Decor

Strike Up a Linear Theme

While using repeated motifs or patterns, such as stars, ikat, or suzani, throughout a room can certainly be cute, sometimes a more subtle approach is easier on the eyes. I love this living area in the portfolio of photographer Per Magnus Persson, but it took me a few minutes to figure out why. Then I realized that there's a linear theme that pulls it all together. Playing off of the repeated pattern of the staircase in the room, a set of boldly striped chaises, a powder-coated steel chair with a linear frame, and a framed piece of artwork with text arranged in a column all continue the linear theme. Most of the pieces in the room are also modern in style, which helps to create a cohesive look as well.

Luckily, this linear look is really easy to re-create, and it will work with any budget! Of course, striped textiles are a foolproof beginning. You can also try décor with pleats, furniture with a linear openings, or a mirror with a textured frame. The next time you're shopping at a furnishing store, keep your eyes peeled for repeated shapes and see what theme you can come up with!
