Design tip: the power of three
Sorry, but whoever said, “Three’s a crowd," is just flat out wrong. Truth is, three’s almost always right, especially when it comes to designing and decorating your one-of-a-kind abode. So if you need a memorable motto to guide your next Target or Homegoods run, remember the Power of 3.
The Power of 3 says that items arranged in odd numbers are most pleasing to our brains and senses. Put it to the test with these tips:
Group pillows in threes on your couches, beds, or entryway bench.
When selecting fabrics, choose three with distinct but complementary colors, textures, and patterns. Layer fabrics with similar colors.
Place tabletop items of various sizes in groups of three and create gallery walls with an odd number of frames.
When it comes to lighting, odd numbers always work best. For example, hang three pendant lights over a kitchen island or bar (five if the space allows).
