I love a sense of order and calm in a room – and this symmetrical sitting room really works for me. The mirroring of objects & décor must suit my brain. Justin doesn’t totally agree – he’s not one for rooms that are completely symmetrical. Our only concession to symmetrical décor in our home is probably matching bedside tables with the same lamps.
When I showed him this particular image, he said that he’d prefer one large piece of artwork over the sofa and one side table (the one in the window) – oh, and probably one glass lamp. In fact, by the time he’d finished re-arranging, it probably wouldn’t be symmetrical at all. Each to their own! I could happily live with a bit of interior symmetry and thought this was a lovely example. It’s very restful to my eye. What do you think?
On a more united front, we both love the bright & airy feel of the room – and the combination of soft greys and sunny yellow accessories.
