Three’s Never a Crowd March 28, 2011
I love creating the perfect groupings of accessories in my house because
a) they’re so easy to rearrange for a new look
b) they allow me to express a little creativity without a big investment
c) I can use them to reflect seasonal changes or holidays.
Over the years, I have acquired special keepsakes, that have history or meaning to me or my family. While other things may come or go, depending on trends, or simply tiring of them, these things are with me for life. Together, the new and the old spell “home”.
For me, artwork, accessories and lighting can make a house into a personal retreat. There are many factors that come into play, when arranging accessories.
You can call it a “triangle”, arranging three things, of complimentary color, texture and height, to create a pleasant arrangement. The shape and size of the triangle should be the appropriate scale for the table, mantel or counter top they’re sitting on. There’s no “formula” to determine the proper scale. Just spend some time experimenting with different combinations, until you create a look that makes you happy!
If all else fails, give me a call. In a couple of hours, we can create some wonderful vignettes throughout your home.
