Concrete gives the room instant texture.It adds texture.We've talked before about how texture can help bring untold amounts of visual interest to your space.

Everyone knows the feeling of running their hands over concrete. so including one of these items in your design fosters an instant connection with the viewer.
The light-color stain of the wood slats adds a natural Scandinavian feel to the small studio space.Why Asymmetry Is an Important Part of Interior Design (and How to Make it Work)It may seem counterintuitive. but asymmetry matters in interior design.Though trends are an important part of the interior design landscape. nothing can overtake the necessity of understanding the fundamentals of how design works.
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.
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.
