ASYMMETRY as seen in an­doy’s home, not ev­ery piece of fur­ni­ture needs to match. light­ing fix­tures do not have to be placed in the ex­act same dis­tance from one an­other. Dec­o­ra­tor gwyn guan­zon shares tips on how to achieve this with­out run­ning the risk of looking clut­tered or overly ac­ces­sorized. 1. When mix­ing fur­nish­ings, stick to a com­mon

de­nom­i­na­tor. The danger in not hav­ing match­ing fur­ni­ture pieces, says gwyn, is that ev­ery­thing is an ac­cent piece. “if you have so many ac­cent pieces, puwede siyang mag­ing fruit salad.” The com­mon

de­nom­i­na­tor could be style or pe­riod, sil­hou­ette and form, or color pal­ette. 2. Cre­ate a good mix based on these col­ors or sil­hou­ettes. in this par­tic­u­lar home, color was a strong fac­tor. You can also play around with style―check out the rag­doll ef­fect on the fab­ric of the seats in the liv­ing room. 3. Even small pieces have

to be co­he­sive. The se­cret is to make sure the small pieces are com­posed well, so they do not look like clut­ter. an­doy brings home all sorts of trin­kets from his trav­els. he also has a vast col­lec­tion of books, but they al­ways have to be care­fully ar­ranged.
