The rule of three can be a fun way to add visual design and depth to any room. Take a look at some of the fun ways you can incorporate the rule of three in your space.
Arranging furniture can be a hassle. Should Grandma’s antique chair go next to the sofa or over by the window? Use the rule of three to help settle some of those questions and add functional flow to any room in your home. Create groupings where the size and shape of each piece mimics another, which will create an integrated look. Using the rule of three also helps balance a room and create symmetry; for example: two matching nightstands on either side of the bed. Just one nightstand throws off the flow and the match keeps the room visually balanced.
You gravitate towards neutral tones, but your partner is a fan of bold and brash splashes of color. It’s difficult to find compromise when it comes to color schemes. The rule of three follows a standard equation that should help balance tastes and please just about everyone: 60, 30, 10. The main room color should take up 60% of the room - walls, furniture, accents, etc. - while the secondary color gets 30% and the accent color makes up 10%. Following the rule of three ensures a well-designed room you’ll love.
The rule of three can help you achieve flow in anything from the texture you use in a room, to the fabrics you use, or even the books on the coffee table. Pairing wood accents with linen fabric and a metallic light fixture gives the room a cohesive feeling without looking forced. Another example would be using three different but complementary prints in a room that all follow a similar color scheme. Play with colors, textures, and patterns, and if you find yourself getting a headache, ask an expert for help!
