|Hanging Art in Symmetrical Arrangements|
Use symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangements of art to create either a formal or a casual feeling.
Symmetry simply means that when an arrangement is divided in half, each half is a mirror image of the other.
In the photo on this page the center line is through the platter, down the center of the mirror, and through the center of the dresser. The elements of either side of this imaginary center line are perfectly balanced.
Symmetry adds balance and formality to an arrangement and is generally pleasing and calming to the observer.
