A clever design trick to copy

Asymmetry is a design challenge we all face at some point. Below is an extreme example... If you take a peak at the the photo below, you might notice a typical "design challenge" - a visually imbalanced window to the left of the bed, and no window on the right...
How would YOU fix it?


Opening another window on the right would have been nice, but expensive....not to mention that another window might also not have worked well with the exterior look of the house!
The solution
Below you can see the clever solution the designer came up with: Hanging an assortment of art pieces works like magic to balance that window. I liked how the designer used black-and-white accents, balanced by a tiny bit of gold.

Using art to balance architectural asymmetry is a tool you can use yourself.
