Why a beautiful home Is so appealingBeauty is hard to define, but generally speaking, people find something beautiful if its form, shape, texture, colour or other physical traits are in some way appealing. And that appeal is particularly impactful when it’s around us day in and day out at home. New York designers Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh examine the ways everyday beauty wields power in fields like architecture, graphic design, city planning and product design in the just-opened multimedia exhibit, demonstrating the many ways that beauty goes beyond being just a superficial trait. Beauty can improve people’s quality of life, the exhibit and its related events argue.Some researchers think our appreciation for beautiful surroundings evolved from a need to be in sync with the natural world since many shapes and patterns we think of as beautiful, such as spirals and waves, can be found in nature. Gravitating toward beauty also may have started as a way for humans to defend themselves from danger (a more beautiful, symmetrical plant could have been safer to eat than a misshapen one, for example).

Also, we juxtaposed an assortment of wood tones to add visual variety to the aesthetic,” says Yogesh.Take a look at more living rooms from around the world
