Style Spotlight | Symmetry

I’m completely drawn to symmetry. I think there's a overall calming effect while keeping things balanced and orderly. Some argue that symmetry can look boring and characterless but I think otherwise.

I love that vignette with the octopus print! Although I don't usually do the whole symmetry thing - could be due to lack of funds to buy two of everything..haha - I do love the look!

I am a big fan of symmetry too! Things just look better when they make sense on both sides! ;)
