Alternate objects by height to create a symmetrical or asymmetrical triangle. On a mantelpiece, for example, try using a large frame or a mirror in the center to anchor the cluster. Then, layer your other decorative accessories and remember to stagger them by size to create your visual triangle. An accessory table paired with a piece of wall art can work well.
Make sure that you hang the artwork 20 to 30 cm above the table (no more) and that some of the items shown overlap the work of art, as this ensures the connection between them. Think of the accessories as if they were cake toppers. Large accessories should be placed first and sparingly, and medium and small accessories should be filled in and added balance when needed. Several small accessories can feel like a large item when grouped together, but don't forget to leave some breathing room.
Not every corner of a room has to be decorated. When you decorate your house or when you simply try to find a place for each object, you sometimes unintentionally place the items that have something in common in the same place. You make small groups of objects that belong to the same category. It's in our nature to do it, to organize ourselves.
That's why we tend to place framed photos in a gallery on the wall, that's why we place all the kitchen utensils in the same drawer or that's why we group the plants together. Decorative items are the most affordable way to freshen up or give a new look to a room, but if a decorator isn't careful, these items can quickly take over the house. These simple tips for choosing accessories, combining them and decorating them can help you organize your room like a professional and avoid the common mistakes that many inhabitants of the houses make with their decoration.
