Summer has left us, but that doesn't mean the beautiful colours that we witnessed through the season have to go too. Why not put some colour and energy back into your interiors, and turn your nose up at those grey days? Arrangements in different colours, textures and graphic prints can create stunning results. Dynamic lines, undulating surfaces and bold geometries can be mixed in with black and white to create a world of contrasts and joyous expressions… Goodbye minimalism and hello maximalism! Be inspired by optical art and geometric abstraction, instead of clean lines and stark interiors!
To convince you, we have gathered in this article six special creations. Created by our wonderful homify experts, you will find varying designs of different sizes and different scales, allowing you to imagine both a small and huge scale of graphic intervention into your home.
The Koinobori is a traditional Japanese element that is normally provided at festivities on the 5th of May each year as a symbol of happiness, prosperity and health. In the colourful and youthful designs of Madame Mo, those pretty little fish papers leave the country of the rising sun to be now available to decorate the bedrooms and living rooms of all design aficionados. Why not give an exotic and fun touch to your home life, or even, add Asian accents to a birthday party or celebration!
A fractured and complex pattern is superimposed on a classic monochrome façade, which appears only in its textures and reliefs.

For six weeks, six designers worked with ambassadors of the city to transform landmark buildings by means of colours and eccentric patterns. The result is both amazing and alluring: it shows that a few coats of paint can completely transform regular urban architecture.
