In the world of interior decor, there is a whole world of vowel and unspoken rules, adhering to which, you can easily achieve the most successful result. They were derived by trial and mistakes, observation and experimentation. So, one of the basic rules of competent decor of any surface in the house (be it a shelf above the fireplace, a console top, a bedside table or a coffee table) is called the “rule of three”. What is its essence and how to use it, says our today’s post.
How it works
The “rule of three” is based on a simple and verified fact: we best visualize the compositions of three objects, different in shape, color and size. So, the subjects complement each other, maintaining the balance and not breaking the harmony. We will give in this material a number of successful examples of decorative design of various surfaces according to this principle, and you will see for yourself that it is effective!

The rule of three in action
That the general picture looked interesting and balanced, it is necessary to adhere to at least two rules out of three (objects must be of different shapes, objects must be of different shades, objects must be of different sizes). If all three rules are observed, the composition should be extremely close to ideal. Here, for example, we see just such a case.
Pay attention to the decor of the coffee table: three objects of approximately the same shape, but different size and color are also combined into a group pleasant to the eye.
The third photo shows that objects of approximately the same height can be successfully combined if they have different shapes and colors (brown feathers, white accessories under a glass cap and the predominant black color in the photo).
By the way, objects do not have to be next to each other: try to create three-dimensional compositions. Here’s a simple example.
Three groups of items
This principle also allows you to combine more than three items in a composition. To do this, they need to be divided into three main groups. The example of this photo shows that the bottles on the spacing represent one group, the second element is a pot with a plant, and the third is a brush.
And here is a more complicated variant: the first group consists of pots with plants, followed by a bowl, followed by a group of transparent vases.
