My design styles tend to evolve and I find myself drawn to accessorizing in new ways. When styling a room, one technique I like to often try is symmetry. It brings a sense of harmony to a space and can balance a room nicely. One way I like to try design symmetry is with lamps. I am drawn to large drum shades with a substantial lamp base. I love this type of lamp as a pair, on either end of a console, buffet or dresser. I recently added a second lamp to my living room chest of drawers, and I like the balance and symmetry the second lamp gives to the vignette. One of my favorite design bloggers, Emily from the wonderful blog Emily A. Clark, beautifully uses design symmetry with lamps in her gorgeous home. She was gracious enough to allow me to share her beautiful lamp vignettes! Thanks, Emily!

So here’s my try at symmetrical design, using lamps!
These are photos of our living and family rooms. I realize that I like using symmetry to help balance the spaces in our home. And Emily’s home is a gorgeous example of symmetrical design!
