Easy as 1-2-3

As you're dusting off your end tables and mantels and making room for seasonal decor, try remembering the number 3 (and sometimes 5).  Odd numbers are visually appealing to the eye and can do wonders for the look of your home.  Be careful, though-having more than 5 accessories on a piece of furniture can become too cluttered and distracting.

 3 pieces of art on a wall or sofa table can create symmetry and balance.

Be sure to use varying sizes and textures with your accessories.

Remember our post on mixing and matching?  Look at how the pop of red with a simple clock and lamp warm up the space.

I love candlesticks!  Anchor them with a third heavier piece for balance.

Finally, just like with textures and sizes, vary the tones in your space with the number 3-in shades and colors.
