We like symmetry… It reflects a sense of structure, a sense of order that some spaces need. Now we’re not saying that every angle of your interior needs mirroring but what we are saying is that the odd twinning here and there strengthens the feel and look of a room without being an eyesore.
You’ll find that employing symmetry in a home can either make a room appear larger or at times even smaller. Well it depends on the patterns, colours and textures used in the space. But digging even deeper than that, Psychology would tell us symmetry influences the mind and has an impact on day to day behaviour.
Not only does symmetry simplify design; it also gives us balance and balance makes us happy. It invites harmony and the calm, a few assets that are extremely important to master in personal space.
So keep it simple and double up! Involve some mirroring; whether it’s your beside tables or the accessories on your dresser. Embrace symmetry and add balance to your space.

Imagine having this on your bedroom ceiling as a kid. This is what dreams are made out of, literally… His work is a whole new level of wavey garms. I actually believe that the new thing is having flooring on your ceiling.
Minimalism is a huge trend and we’ve spoken about it before over here on the blog. To really get the look we’ve compiled some key areas to focus on when designing a minimalist interior to hit the nail on the head. Find amazing quality pieces! Try and make informed purchases and think about what the product is made of, the colour and even the grain of the material. Having a lot less items in a room means each ones needs to serve a purpose but also be beautiful so that it can hold its own. Simplicity is key in this style interior so keep the lines of your furniture simple and clean. However, to add some quirkiness why not choose this piece in a pop of colour to create a central focus. Lastly, let special features of each room sing. If you have a stunning arched roof keep furniture low lying so that all the focus is up above. This is key to keeping accessorizing to a minimum and only keeping your best on display so that minimalism is achieved and architectural features shine.
Don’t panic! This is not a maths lesson, but we can share with you some geometric inspiration to multiply your style points within your home. Geometric style has been around for over a year now but can still be seen plastering the covers of interior magazines and your Instagram feed. This quirky horse wall mount is a modern take on a traditional accent for the home. If it’s more of a minimal monochrome interior you want to add to; why not try some geometric light fixtures like the ones below. They can act as a central focal point above a dining table or for hanging side lights by a bed.
When moving house, art and collectables are usually the only items that get transferred from place to place. So I will give you an example of a piece of art that resembles the design of the room.
This piece of art is contemporary and clearly photoshopped to include nature and forestry. Below is a room that is parallel to this piece of art and designed on this singular photograph.
The spotted wall highlights the hidden forest within the image and the use of whites, greys and blacks are prominent within this setting. Take note of the linear lines of the hand in the photo and then again on the ceiling. The texture from the rug, sofa and the wooden seat are all seen within the hand of the image as branches bend and curl making it look 3D.
