Geode rocks naturally form in the soil or within volcanic rocks. They are formed by the hardening of minerals in one place, forming a mass over time. Because they come in a variety of shapes and colors, they are an ideal rock for the creation of furniture and home accessories. Most of them come in shapes that are quite irregular while others are in convex shapes, circles, have flat bottoms and round tops, and ovals.
The minerals that form in the rocks also come in a variety of colors. Some of the minerals include gypsum, quartz, crystals, calcite, barite, citrine, agate, and amethyst. The furniture and accessory pieces that are made from these rocks are unique pieces that will grab the attention of anyone who comes to your home. It is no wonder then, why these décor items have become very popular around the world. To make the most of your geode home decorations, you need to follow design principles that will make your décor stand out. Here are a few tips!
- Create a focal point – This is a feature that you will emphasize so that whenever anyone comes into the room, their eyes naturally gravitate towards it. It is important to note that everything that you place around this focal point should complement it. One of the best ways to create a focal point is by placing a large furniture piece where you want the focal point to be. A geode piece would be ideal for this. Depending on its color, you can then place complementary accessory pieces in the same color around the room. These can be vases, candles and the like.
- Work with odd numbers – The rule of odd numbers is simply that when you group or arrange objects in odd numbers, they tend to be more appealing, effective and memorable than in even numbers. This means that if you have smaller geode accessory pieces, you should consider clustering them in odd numbers for heightened effect. Placing them on your coffee table will make a great conversation piece for sure. It is also a good idea to work with a variety of textures, shapes and heights while ensuring that there is a similarity among the things you cluster as well.
- Avoid clutter –If a room is cluttered, chances are that your unique pieces will get lost in everything else. Ensure that your spaces remain open and clean and make the use of the clear space. Having clear spaces will allow what you do have in the room to stand out and get noticed.
- Consider shapes – Since most geode décor pieces come in odd shapes, you need to consider the shapes of other furniture pieces in the room. If you have a large space, use a curved edge coffee table to soften the angular shape of your sofa, for example. If the space is small, you may need to consider something different.
