Pair round and rectangular objects for balance
In the world of art and design, contrast is important and home decor is no exception. Whether you’re choosing a new bookcase and ottoman or looking for a mirror to hang above your dresser, consider pairing pieces of contrasting shapes like the ones pictured below.
In the same way that light and dark colors go together nicely, pieces of furniture with square corners and piece of furniture without any corners (round) create a sense of drama and balance when used effectively. As a rule, when selecting objects with opposing silhouettes, make sure the color and / or texture of each is similar so the aesthetic is still uniform.
