What Houzz contributors are saying:
Asymmetrical Asymmetrical balance makes for a more relaxed and lively interior space. This balance scheme uses a central line but relies more on the eye’s sense of balance to complete the design. Rather than having identical objects on either side of the central axis, asymmetrically balanced spaces have different objects of equal visual weight on either side of the line. In this living room, the left side of the serves as the central line. The height and weight of the sofa and cushions on the right balance the console on the left. The height of the fireplace surround also balances out the tall bookshelves.
