Asymmetrical VS Symmetrical…

{The Aestate Tumblr}

Some people think symmetry in design is boring and too safe. I personally love it but if something isn’t symmetrical, I prefer that it’s at least balanced. By that I mean, if there is a console table with a lamp on one side and a plant on the other, I would want them the same height. If a mirror and a pic is hung over nightstands, I’ll need them to be hung at the same height. So what are your thoughts? First what do you think of this fabulous mirrored greek key console table? Such a statement piece…

  1. you chose really great pictures to exemplify both. I think I prefer asymmetrical, but balanced. However, ever all the symmetrical rooms here are divine. I wouldn’t change a thing!

    1. Yeah the only way I’m not irked with something asymmetrical is it it’s balanced. I can’t get enough of the first image found on your Pinterest. So lovely.
