Designing with Odds to Appeal

When it comes to design, symmetry stands out as a strong choice. But here, at Lita Dirks & Co. we’re odd! OK, not exactly odd – but motivated to develop designs that excite and entice!

So, why exactly are odd numbers visually attractive?

Even numbers are an easy solution to create symmetry, but odd numbers subconsciously develop interest. Groupings of even items can easily be processed by the brain, while odd numbers is an effective way to capture attention and influence a potential home buyer's eye to move through the composition. For this reason, odds are more memorable, alluring and engaging.

See if you can spot the odds! Here are a few examples of how odds were the obvious choice in our recent work on places such as art, lighting, décor and more.
