Have you ever looked at a room and it just seemed perfect, and you really couldn't say why? Take this small seating area, it looks great, but how many times have you put a chair, side table, lamp, and art together and the outcome just didn't work? The key to achieving that perfect balance and symmetry is the intentional use of repeating patterns. If you really study the picture, you will see that the square frame of the picture repeats in the midsection of the table lamp. Also, the long rectangle legs of the side table repeat in the front arms of the chair. So in this space, the repeated use of geometric shapes along with color tones make it pleasing to look at. So, the next time you decorate, take a minute and think about how you can repeat shapes, patterns, and colors to create a perfect space.
