When decorating a home, 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 decor to your home, 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. Flower vases can be used to decorate in three’s.

And there are different ways in which these flower vases can be used especially when using the power of three’s which will enhance the beauty of your. Flowers in those vases will obviously provide you with an awesome effect. On the other hand, you can even use them alone as a showpiece and display them in the showcase or keep them on a decorative table or on a side cabinet where it suits the most.

By this way also you can create a difference in your room. You can add more themes in these vases by pouring seashells, sands or colourful water.
 
Pillow Power in Threes in the living room
Throw pillows and blankets can also be used in three’s. 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. Plates and bowls can also be neatly arranged in the kitchen to complement the entire contemporary feel.

Decorating the Bedroom 

In the bedroom, three throw pillows placed on the bed can add a nice touch and bring out the feminine side of a room. 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 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.

Framed pictures too can be used to decorate in the power of three’s. These decorative items are available in different shapes, sizes, colours and styles. Thus there is not need to worry about your taste and preferences for these items because you will definitely get that will provide you with the optimal elegance and style to any room.
