Repeat a Colour at Least Three Times in a Room
There is an old gardener's saying "sets of 3 leave them be, 4 or more pick some more". But when it comes to decorating your home 3 is usually the magical number. Whether you are selecting the number of objects to display on a table, balancing a colour scheme or working out the proportions in a room design the number 3 is more often than not the targeted number.
By using a colour at least 3 times in a room you will accomplish the following:
* You will make the colour choose look intentional rather than accidental.
* It will help you to balance out your room's colour scheme.
* It will help to create harmony and rhythm in the room.
Note: In the picture above, the gold coloured picture frame is balanced off with a brass lamp and gold coloured frames on the pictures above the loveseat. The same effect could have been achieved by using a canvas print behind the love seat and placing a gold/brass coloured candle stick on a coffee table in front of the love seat.
