Curating a Collection, The Rule of Threes and E-Design: In Case You Missed It (My Dec. 2020 Newsletter)

Curating a Collection: Rule of Threes… and More
In my first apartment, I thought that if I had three similar or very compatible decorative objects, and I placed them in various spots around a room, it would make the room feel more visually unified. Maybe that’s true sometimes. But then I learned about the Rule of Threes which says that things arranged in odd numbers are more appealing, memorable and effective than even-numbered groupings.
