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.
Using Three in the Kitchen
You can also use multiples of three very effectively in the kitchen. Three kitchen canisters of varying or similar height can look nice arranged in a row on the countertop. Or, place a salt grinder, pepper grinder and one container of another cooking spice close to your store for an attractive display that is also handy and useful. Even something as simple as three beautiful apples arranged in a basket can add a touch of beauty to the kitchen.
Decorating the Bedroom
In the bedroom, three throw pillows placed on the bed can add a nice touch. When arranging items on your vanity, lining up a hair brush, comb and hand mirror can add a very traditional look. You can even use your everyday toiletries in a decorative fashion by arranging them in groups of three, such as a beautiful bottle of perfume, a bottle of body lotion, and a container of talcum powder on one corner of the vanity, which are useful as well as attractive.
Using the Technique in the Bath
In the bathroom, try adding three small mirrors vertically on a narrow wall, or arrange three tall, narrow mirrors over the vanity instead of using one large mirror. A basket of towels combined with a vase of flowers and a knick knack or natural accent such as a sea shell can also add a bit of "triple beauty" to the bathroom.
