‘Double up!’

fashion, interior design, Uncategorized

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.



Into The Blue

Whether its navy, cobalt or royal; blue is making a fashionable comeback. Once confined to a little boy’s bedroom this colour has come back with a sophisticated edge. To regain masculinity within a room why not use a deep blue mixed with mustard accessories to bring across an on trend look. Great ways to use blue in an unexpected way are to have a feature wall or layer tones of blue for a unique feel. Too much blue is never enough so experiment with tones and pattern to create a look personal to you.
