Can't Get Enough: Symmetry















It takes two to make a thing go right-
It takes two to make it outta sight!
Hit It!

  1. YES! Sometimes it's all about the BALANCE and hitting the right notes with just the right pairs. Great photos, all! I would feel very balanced in any of those settings : ) What a great design thought for the day! xx Suzanne

  2. I love symmetry in a room too ~ I think it has something to do with being a Libra, (they love balance, the sign is a scale ~ not that I am huge into astrology but this is dead on)! Love the boys bedroom with the Union Jack. xo

  15. Given that I'm one of a symmetrical pair, I've always loved the balance of two!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love this. I must say my favourite picture is the bedroom in picture number three. It looks like the perfect guest room!

  17. Symmetry indeed, dear Lady;-)
    That first image tickles my fancy.
    It's so cozy and quaint with the flowers silently sitting there;-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I loved these! And then I read the musical quote and laughed! 90's flashback! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am a fan of symmetry too. All of these rooms are so gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  23. It might be too traditional for some, but I love symmetry in design. The chairs in that first picture are divine, and they are PURPLE - even better!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great ideas here also. I`m in the midst of decorating a Carrie Bradshaw type apartment and symmetry is very important. My place is long like a bowling alley but unlike Carries apartment I have a rooftop deck.

    ReplyDelete
  25. yep, i'm with you! that first image is a killer. great collection zushie! jxxx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Fabulous rooms! I love the second pic the most, but they are all stunning, as always! You and Cashon&Co. need to hook up and start an 80s cover band, she was quoting Will Smith's "Summertime" on Saturday! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great Z., now I'm gonna have that song stuck in my head all day. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Very good chosen images! I always try to bring in symmetry in designing a room! It is very important to me!
    Great post!

  29. Love it love it! Especially in kids rooms and living rooms! Unfortunately, I think all the builders in the O.C. had some aversion against symmetry and come up with crazy layouts for rooms. Maybe a hallway like th eone you posted will be in my future?

  34. Totally agree! I have had that Elle Decor Manhattan living room photo in my inspiration folder for a couple years now! I love it, and always will! Thanks for your comments on our blog the other day! It's great to find you over here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am so into this! I love to have pairs of two's! Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am definitely not one to notice symmetry but maybe I should because these are fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have a love/hate relationship with symmetry! I think it always brings a feeling of calm to a space, but an asymmetrical organization if usually more interesting, which is very appealing too. Great pics and a useful post.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great picture selection as always! Tuesday morning eye candy for sure. xo

  39. I am with you on this one. I always tend to do symetry in my rooms. It is a fine line to not make it look too contrived but it just feels right and balanced to me. I did a post a while ago on symetry and we used the same examples, I love it when like minded people find eachother, isn't blogland wonderful, Have a Happy Tuesday,kathysue

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fantastic examples! And I want that painting in the second photo... a lot.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love it! Symmetry makes me happy ... although I wish I would be a little more embracing of the asymmetrical!

    ReplyDelete

  52. I love symmetry -- it suites my type-A personality.

    And I am SO in love with those purple ikat chairs.

    ReplyDelete
  53. those first two chairs are a home run.
    I like a little symmetry mixed with a little asymmetry!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm all about symmetry. But I do think it works best when there is one element that is not repeated (like the lamp in the twin bed shot). Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. OMG I love that first room!

    ReplyDelete
  56. LOVE everything... But that second room's two tables are annoying me. I just want to push them together or buy them one table!

    ReplyDelete
  57. A room is nothing without symmetry (in my opinion) Love the first pic ;)

    ReplyDelete
  58. Yay for symmetry! Love it. xx

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love symmetry too - it seems to bring order to my disorderly? mind...
    And do I spy a bottle of Jo Malone on that side table in the first pic? How wonderful: "Yes,I think I SHALL have a seat and a spritz, thank you!" :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow so much eye candy here!
    I too am a 'symmetry girl' - it doesn't always have to be as structured as this but I love it when a room is well balanced. So restful for the eyes.

    Am in love with the little table in no 1. and the wall of bird art in the last pic. Gorgeous!

  63. I love the look of symmetry in a room. There's something so safe and comforting about it. And there's always room for a surprise splash of color or whimsy too!

    ReplyDelete
