Symmetry

I  love symmetry....
 I do have two sets of twins.  I think that's God's way of saying understands my need for symmetry.

It calms me.

It makes sense.



As my children get older and the amount of primary colored toys, art work, cub scout projects, and treasured keeepsake boxes filled to the brim with rocks, leaves, dirt, and the occasional lizard grow by the day , I find myself craving symmetrical beauty even more than ever.  Especially after this week, where craziness has reigned supreme.
A basic design formula is using no more than 4 matching pairs in a room to keep the space interesting.  A great rule of thumb, but I'm thinking our home might be an exception.


  How much symmetry would it take to create a sense of calm around a 8 story roller coaster that has taken up residence on your dining room table?
