Our eyes naturally love to follow lines, and our minds are at ease when we spend time in rooms where the elements are in harmony with each other.
For example, these shelves in a home designed by Simon Couchman Architects, follow the lines of the unconventional windows in this children’s room. They relate to each other. They compliment each other. As a result, when we enter a room like this, our minds are peaceful.
This cabinet, in a home by Caramel Architects, is like the Swiss Army Knife of cabinets. It’s a space divider, an entertainment unit, a liquor cabinet, and has a fireplace on the end. As if all that wasn’t enough, the whole thing is just hanging in space, because it’s cantilevered, which is a fancy way of saying that it’s only supported on one end.
