Contemporary + Symmetrical

How to Do It
1) Play the balancing game and hang a pair of sconces on either side of the mantel. A white finish is so chic.

2) Skip the holes (just this once!) and lean an oversize piece of art against the wall to create major impact.

3) Seeing doubles? Display matching vases on either side to add even more symmetry.
