Jagged or Unfinished as a Design Element

We’ve long been fans of “broken geometries”, the purposeful leaving of design elements unfinished, uneven, or even broken, to create a visual surprise. Recently Remodelista did a roundup of some  fine examples. Our favorites: To start, the octagonal tiles above left as is, with no finished line

…the irregular patch of sheetrock left on a brick wall, like some odd painting…



…purposely crooked painted two-toned walls…

They are all somehow both finished and unfinished, with a more chill feeling than the usual perfectionist attempt. A relief!
