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.
For a few years now beige has been seen as ‘boring’, but alas it’s back but only if you throw some textures within it. This chalet vibe has been created using wooden panelling and dark wood as the floor, the lamp to the left, the stem being made of twigs blends superbly to it’s surrounding wood. This setting would not have been the same without the fur, and cosy rug so these two key components are crucial to the fung-shui of this room.
Scared of a red hot interior? No fear Spicer Interiors is here to change your mind about the intense shade that many ban from their home. Red can be darkening which is why it’s important to use it in the right places and in the right shades. Painting a feature wall or two in red will look eye-catching and stunning when paired with more muted tones like grey and natural materials. The danger is to use red prints as well as a red painted wall which can look very matchy matchy. For a touch of red in your space try a statement piece of furniture like these red velvet chairs used in a Parisian lounge. Both romantic and edgy, red could be the saviour to your dull interior adding spice and style.
This wallpaper has been in this property for over 78 years! With a touch of paint to freshen it up it subtly corresponds with the scheme. Soft greys take authority for the larger pieces of furniture, whilst metallic golds reflect light outwards. The textures here are warm and inviting. It’s important not to have the same textures throughout, and instead a varied amount of lush fabrics. The symmetry of the books here are important to make your eyes zoom in on the bowls, sofa and pillow arrangements.
