From time to time, I like to share basic design lessons with my readers. These tactics can be utilized regardless of your personal taste or the dimensions of the space you are decorating. While keeping abreast of home design trends is a fun and exciting part of my job, I always refer back to these basics, as the trends are ever-changing. And symmetry is one design element that will never go out of style.
I love using symmetry to pull a room together. A pair of lamps or a set of strategically placed chairs can give your space a sense of balance. To demonstrate this lesson, I've collected various examples from past issues of Martha Stewart Living. I think you'll be impressed with what a great effect this simple strategy can have.
