Decorating Your Apartment With the Power of Three

Decorating Your Apartment With the Power of Three
When decorating your apartment, it is important to keep in mind that there are certain techniques that can be used to create a more visually appealing end result. One of these tricks is to use decorating accessories in multiples of three. Using groupings instead of singular items can add a decorator look to your apartment, while adding a lot of visual interest.

Artwork and Accessories in Multiple of Threes
One way of using multiples of three is with wall art. Instead of hanging just one large piece of art on a long wall, try hanging three framed prints or paintings that are the same size in a row. Or, use one large piece of wall art beside two smaller ones stacked one over the other. This method of hanging wall art can be much more interesting than a single framed piece. Keep in mind that when using the "power of three," all three items do not need to be the same. For example, hanging a candle sconce on both sides of a framed print can add a nice effect. Plants arranged in multiples of three also work well, especially if you choose plants that vary according to height, placing the taller plant in the back.

Pillow Power in Threes
You can also use multiples of three when placing throw pillows and blankets. For example, draping a tapestry throw over one end of the sofa along with a large and small throw pillow can be very attractive. Or, group throw pillows in multiples of three for a contemporary look. Remember when arranging throw pillows that pillows in even numbers placed symmetrically such as one or two pillows placed on either end of a sofa adds a traditional look, while an odd number of pillows place asymmetrically generally adds a more modern and contemporary look.
