To keep up on my design chops, I once read a Feng Shui book
and to be honest I only got a few things out of it
that seemed realistic to my decorating tastes.
One of them being that decorating in three's creates harmony in the home.
I didn't know how to incorporate that into my style because I adore symmetry.
I quickly realized in design school that decorating in three's just makes sense,
it creates balance to the room without being too matchy-matchy.
If ever you are in doubt of how to work accessories or items into your room
without looking overly done, just stick with the rule of threes.
trust me...it works.
Here, three pillows balance the art + lamps.

notice the blue file boxes in groupings of 3.
