Circles – the hottest interior design element in 2012

Long live 360 degrees!

Circles aren’t just the hottest design trend in web design for 2012, interior design is following suit as our culture shifts toward a less stuffy, less starchy traditional, stark modern look to a warmer look incorporating circles to soften any space and make it more approachable.

Whether staging a vacant home or decorating your new home, there is nothing more rewarding than making a simple change that dramatically shifts the look of any space. Be it painted on your bedroom wall or hanging from your ceiling, you are not restricted to the 90 degree angles of yesteryear. Play with circles, add them to your decor, they’re hot and they’re in. They’re so 2012!
