The Rule #3 + Slow Decorating in a home

The easiest way to use the rule of three is to display a matching set of decor in three different sizes  with the same type of object.  You can create not only with 3 objects but using other odd number arrangements like one, five, seven or nine. When you see odd number of things, your eye is forced 

to move around more. It makes a more interesting visual experience.

Here are a few ways to use it in your home.  Choose three objects to style stuff on tabletops , coffee tables, nightstands and any other surface.

The top accessories are plants, florals, lamps, books, boxes, candles, souvenirs and seasonal decor.
