Live: Symmetry in an Unexpected Way

Subconsciously, when most people design the interior of their homes, they tend to arrange things symmetrically, with the intention of giving balance to the entire space. For the most part, the end result tends to be a little sterile and too perfect. A solution to this is to have pieces that are a mix of fun and practical, and arrange them in a typical way. Although it is likely that one side of the room will look like a mirror image of the other, at least it will be a more  approachable space that can make for a good conversation topic.

One of my favorite interior designers is the famous Kelly Wearslter, who is known for her designs that can be found in the Viceroy hotels in Santa Monica. She has an eccletic, eccentric design aesthetic, often throwing in unexpected piece that to the naked eye would never work together, but with the right pieces, can transform any space into a livable area. A good example is the picture above, a room she designed herself. I mean, who would think to use a gigantic gold sculpture of a face a centerpiece in a room with retro sofas and a checkerboard coffee table? The funny thing is that it pulls the room together, giving almost a regal/vintage/modern feel to the room. My suggestion is not to go out and a quirky piece of art, just for the sake of it, but find pieces you like, even if it is out of your normal taste preferences, and integrate them into your home for an unexpected, yet aesthetically pleasing result.
