Sometimes I just crave me a little symmetry.
Granted, most of the time, I'm more of a grouping-of-threes type decorator. I like my rooms to feel a bit dynamic, a tad collected, and a lot surprising and unexpected.
But I'll admit, on that late June evening when I decided that my living room was a muddled mess and committed myself to completely rethinking the space, I was ready to try anything.
This inspiration photo soon jumped into my eyeballs and imprinted itself on my brain.
I mean, this room is a little over the top for me. It's a bit shimmery and shiny for my organic tastes but that's not the point at all. What I really loved was the calm, controlled balance of that clean, cut-it-down-the-middle-with-a-knife symmetry.
Yum. Slice me up a piece of that pretty pie.
Now it's true that my financial resources are entirely limited, and I'm mostly making do with what I have. Lord knows I'd love to drop a few grand on some new white couches, and my pillows and artwork are definitely works in progress.I wouldn't hate a fresh coat of bright white paint on that woodwork, either.
Still, I happy to report that my living room has slowly but surely evolved into the feng shui-friendly haven that it is today.
And for that, I am symmetrically satisfied.
