The Rule of 3s in Styling

Posted by Michaela Rocak on

The rule of 3s is all about the idea that objects arranged or grouped in odd numbers are more appealing, memorable, and effective than even-numbered groupings. This simple guideline helps create visual interest and harmony within a space.

It helps create a sense of balance and appeal without making a space feel too busy or overdone. For example, when decorating a shelf, using three objects of varying heights can help draw the eye in a way that feels natural and engaging. This technique can also apply to wall art, where three pieces of art are hung together to create a focal point. By limiting the group to three, each item stands out as individual, yet contributes to a cohesive whole.

The rule of threes also extends to colour schemes and textures. In choosing colours, you can choose three shades that complement each other to create depth and interest. For example, a room could incorporate a dominant colour on the walls, a secondary colour in the furniture, and an accent colour in accessories like cushions and artwork. DecoRug has a huge range of cushions to choose from, to help bring your space to life with colours and textures. This allows each element to pop while maintaining a harmonious overall environment.

Similarly, combining three different textures in a room — such as a soft rug, a sleek inlay side table, and a plush sofa — can enrich the space's sensory experience, making it more inviting and comfortable. Check out our exciting options, classed by theme, so you can shop an entire look all from the one place, DecoRug!

By integrating the rule of threes in various aspects of your home, you can create spaces that are not only visually striking but also well-balanced and inviting. This rule proves that sometimes, in design as in life, less is more, and simplicity can lead to sophistication.
