Color and CompositionEarth tones or bright hues, symmetrical or asymmetrical, two dimensional or three dimensional, opaque or transparent are design elements that communicate a story about your home. If you want a feeling of formality, then a symmetrical composition is your likely desire. If you're looking for more of a relaxed and casual feel, than perhaps it's asymmetry that you want. And color plays a huge role in the overall appeal of your home. Will it be calming and tied to the earth in shades of brown and green, or will it be bold and perhaps abstract in bright yellows and reds?
