Which is why. today. we're going back to basics. We're about to take a look at why asymmetry is a crucial component of design in our homes.Keep reading to learn more about what exactly asymmetry is. why it matters and how you can pull it off in your own interiors. We're sure by the time you've finished reading. you'll be ready to make a few adjustments of your own.Asymmetry is a type of balance.What is asymmetry?
Take the picture above as an example. While the room features a consistent color palette. the same number of chairs on either side of the coffee table. and even a symmetrical layout. it was probably the fireplace that caught your eye first — and held it. Asymmetrical elements are a good tool to use when you want to call attention to a feature of your design.Asymmetrical design can make your interiors feel more casual.It's more casual
Why Concrete Is 2018's Next Big Thing in Interior Design (and How to Try the Trend)Concrete is shaping up to be 2018's next big design trend. So far 2018 has brought us quite a few polarizing design trends. We've already talked about how to harness the power of bold colors. but now. it's time to talk about a trend on the other end of the aesthetic spectrum.
There's actually a psychological basis for why this occurs. It has to do with the way our brains process information. They aim to pick up on as many patterns and repetitions as possible. so the mirroring effect of symmetrical design makes those rooms very easy to figure out. In asymmetrical spaces. the patterns are less immediately obvious. so it takes our brains a bit longer to process them and ultimately makes them more interesting.
