Asymmetrical balance contrasts symmetrical balance in that the sides are not identical in its shapes or colors. However, the overall effect of any asymmetrically balanced interior appears balanced because of several design factors.
One of these factors is that visual balance is achieved by a smaller area of a strong color next to a larger area of a weaker color. In this photo, there are strongly advancing colors of chocolate brown walls on the right side of the room, mocha wood flooring, darkly polished bed frame, and coordinating chocolate dressers and accessories. This richly powerful color is perfectly proportional to the amount of visible creamy white ceiling surface, white flokati rug, crisp white bed sheets, beige leather bed, creamy walls and matching accessories. The appropriate proportions of light and dark colors result in a well-balanced interior.
The design element of rhythm also creates a dynamic movement in this asymmetrically balanced room. The constant contrasts of light and dark in interesting proportions and textures keeps the eyes pleasantly roving towards the next exciting discovery in this well-designed and balanced interior. Although the fireplace is off-balance and the room itself is asymmetrical by leading into another room, by using the perfect play of light and dark in the use of lighting, colors and shapes, this asymmetrically balanced interior is excitingly well-designed.
