What do these various styles of bedrooms all have in common?
If you guessed symmetry, you are correct! We know that the focal point of the bedroom is usually the bed. I have found the most pleasing look for a bedroom design is having symmetry on both sides of the bed. You do not necessarily need to have the exact same side tables, but they do need to be of the same height. ( If I am designing a bedroom for a client, I strongly suggest using the same tables.) The lamps are what I believe is the significant accessory that will give you that balanced, cohesive look.
Look at the pictures of the guest room below.
It looks symmetrical, but something is just not right. So, lets try another lamp.
This new lamp on the left has more height and width, more presence. Also, the new lamp has a beige lampshade which coordinates with the beige in the comforter and with the pictures. (Another future post- coordinating white with white, cream/beige with cream/beige).
