His show was almost like a how to decorate show or Home Decorating for Dummies and I loved it. One of the tricks of the trade that he shared was the power of decorating in odd numbers. Be it a single picture or a grouping of 3, 5, or 9, using odd numbers often works well when creating vignettes for a mantel, side table or table scape.
To show the power of decorating in odd numbers I have pulled some photos from Pinterest to show how it can work in different settings.
However, don't think that even numbers are left out in home decorating! In my next post I'm going to show how symmetry and even numbers can be used as well.
Here are some of the absolutely lovely photos I pulled from Pinterest.
Three throw pillows on a sofa.
Three candles on a table.
Three pumpkins for fall.
Five stems in a vase.
I love how the 7 candlesticks are broken up into groups of 4 and 3.
Three topiaries on a Christmas mantel.
Three canisters in the kitchen.
A simple but beautiful vignette of three single items.
And, of course, the power of one beautiful floral arrangement.
I can't wait to share all of the great ideas I found in decorating with even numbers. It'll be great for all of you quasi-OCD people like me!
Happy decorating Cheap Mamas!
