Here's the No. 1 secret to keeping your security deposit safe and sound while still feeding an art addiction: You don't actually have to hang art on your walls to make sure it plays a prominent role in your design. When your ability to change the décor is limited. simply displaying the art can have the same effect without inflicting any damage.
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.
When you're looking to highlight texture. the key is to create contrast. In particular. concrete does best when it's juxtaposed against something natural. such as wood. You should also pay attention to the colors in your concrete and be sure to choose contrasting shades for the rest of the room.Looking for a focal point. Problem solved? It's an instant focal point
Take a second to think of all the mirror images you've seen in interior design. More than likely. the images you're thinking of are stately living rooms that feature double couches or a long dining table with two rows of identical chairs. This rigid duplication of symmetrical design has a tendency to present as more formal and even a little stuffy.
