A minimalist and elegant apartment with an interior design based on symmetry

It’s common for people to associate symmetry with traditionalism in not just interior design and décor but in poetry and other domains as well. It’s true that most modern and contemporary interiors focus on the unexpected and on elements that are intriguing and go out of the box. However, creating an interior based on symmetry is not as simple as you might think.

This apartment features an interior that’s elegant, simple and not necessarily traditional because of the symmetry. In fact, this is a technique that results in a beautiful composition, a well-balanced and harmonious creation and doesn’t necessarily have to be included in a certain style or current. In this apartment, the living room and the kitchen clearly have interiors focused on symmetry, of course, in the limits of the space available.

In the living room we can see that there are two sofas facing each other and placed on each side of the window. Then the curtains further accentuate this effect. The two pieces of artwork placed on the walls behind the sofas also feature similar color palettes and match the rug underneath the coffee table. The kitchen also has the same type of windows with matching, symmetrical blinds and with furniture on either side of them plus a dining table in the middle. For the rest of the rooms, symmetry was achieved mostly through color.{found on Ekenstam}.
