Very curious your opinion on this matter of mantel decor. Dead serious…the results could change how I stage and take photos especially if there is any validity in the statement below.
I read an article stating that asymmetrical decor on a mantel is more comforting/inviting verses symmetrical decor.
So I decided to to put this to a test (curious about these big name designers who come up with these rules we are supposed to follow in design), to see if he was correct.
So does this comfort you?
(not the fire itself-the decor arrangement)
How about this?
Maybe you don’t like the actual decor on it, but how does it make you feel..
The article said the above arrangement should be making you feel uncomfortable…
How about this one?
Verses this one?
Any of these make you feel comfortable?
Seriously though, taking out of consideration personal tastes of decor do you find that an asymmetrical design on the mantel really makes you feel more comfortable?
