A Flexible Design Element

Lindye explains, "I think it's going to be the next trend because it adds a lot of flexibility to what you can do with designing your space."

Added Pattern + Texture

Lindye Galloway's design studio office boasts this fun wall treatment. "Beyond simply adding color to the wall, the geometric patterns give it more texture," she explains.

It Works With Many Different Design Styles
