Living Room / June 7, 2018 / Elie Ignace.
A formal symmetrical scheme forms the basis of traditional interior design and is easy to achieve: if you were to draw a line down the middle of a room, one side would simply mirror the other, right down to the accessories or finishing touches. It’s a considered approach, though it does take discipline to keep it in order, and needs strong visual elements to stop it from appearing bland.
Practicalities must be considered, of course, and furnishings chosen to suit our lifestyle, but there’s more to it than that: as any interior designer will tell you, a great scheme depends on principles that might not be immediately obvious, but which, when successfully employed, make a world of difference not only to the look of a room, but to the way it makes you feel in it.
Combining different elements – wood, stone, glass, metal, leather – together with a variety of surfaces, from smooth and shiny to rough and nubbly, is easy to achieve. Layering different fabrics is a great way to bring texture to the fore – provided patterns are all within the same colour family, it will work.
What a mix of styles! This living room is so simple, but with every installation being so well considered, it creates a very beautiful landscape. A retro sofa, vibrant accent cushions and a unique coffee table alternative all work together so well, yet nothing sticks out like it doesn't belong.
