All it takes to pull this look off is a little imagination. Start by going around your apartment and looking into the various possibilities available to you. Consider existing shelving. tabletops or other surfaces that could use a makeover. These days. many minimalist looks even include larger artworks that have been propped up on the floor as a style statement.
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.
Symmetrical/formal balance: This type of balance is created by taking the room and splitting it into two halves that mirror each other. It could. for example. include a living room that features two sofas with a coffee table between them.Asymmetrical/informal balance: In this case. the room is balanced by the repetition of similar forms. lines and colors. but there is no mirroring or exact duplication.
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.
