Designing with the Rule of Three

We all have our special collections or nicknacks sitting around our home, right?

Heaven knows, I have plenty!  Too much, in fact.  Trying to pare down now here at Boyd Street and at my other old house but that’s another blog for another day… 🙂

The question is.. how do we keep these objects from looking like a hodgepodge of what-nots or thrift store finds and instead display them in an eye appealing,  cohesive design?  Lamps Plus has given 3 good decorating tips in their blog for achieving this look.  The first is the Rule of Three as pictured below.  The concept is that items grouped in threes have more visual appeal.

The triangle in the picture above shows the group of three and how the bottom objects lead the eye to the picture.  For more tips, be sure to click on the LampsPlus link above.  I found it very helpful!

Enjoy!
