Once in a while, I get a client that insists they are symmetrical. They don't like things "off" or askew. The are adamant that asymmetry is repellent to them and I better not try any asymmetrical shenanigans with their space! I think they are cute when they do this. And to be certain, there are people that love love love symmetry. After all, ladybugs, butterflies, flowers. These are all examples of symmetry---and who doesn't love those things? I presume some of my clients think decorating with symmetry is easier. That they will be able to maintain the finished room if things are the same on both sides? Some personality types like the order and calm a symmetrical room can bring. Whatever the reason, it is o.k. Look at these photos...these are some beautiful images, aren't they?
