Give your home ‘curve appeal’, soften those edges, bring circular and rounded patterns and silhouettes into an interior to create a calm feel and modern design look.
Introduce the circular design in fabrics, wallpapers and other patterned soft furnishings, or try curves in furniture – rounded tables, soft cornered shelving, and moulded smooth plastic furniture.
Look for inspiration from midcentury interiors and 1960s styling but give it a modern look by minimising too many bright colours and not clashing too many patterns. Furniture in plywood and plastic are always strong for curved silhouettes. Head to print stores like King & Mcgaw and Seventy Tree for extra details in your styling by introducing prints with circle patterns and colours that match your scheme.
