In interior design, repetition refers to the use of the same design element, such as a shape, color, texture, or pattern, multiple times throughout a space. This technique is used to create a cohesive and harmonious look, as well as to draw the eye to certain areas or features.
Here are some examples of repetition in interior design:
- Using the same color scheme throughout a room, such as using shades of blue in the curtains, throw pillows, and artwork
- Repeating a pattern on different surfaces, such as using a geometric pattern on the wallpaper, area rug, and throw pillows
- Repeating shapes, such as using round mirrors, circular vases, and circular light fixtures in a room
- Repeating textures, such as using a combination of smooth, glossy surfaces and rough, matte surfaces throughout a space
