This Clever Home-Styling Tip Won’t Cost You a Dime

Redecorating shouldn’t rely on a hefty budget. By implementing just this one well-kept secret used by stylists everywhere, it’s possible to breathe new life into your décor—without spending a dime. Fashion gurus believe that a basic outfit can go from bland to polished with the addition of a single third element: a statement necklace perhaps, or a pair of killer heels. In stylist lingo, this is referred to as the rule of threes. Styling for décor largely revolves around the same philosophy: displaying vignettes, or arrangements that create a décor moment, is best done in odd numbers and triangular shapes. Find out why this simple trick is so powerful, and how you can apply the rule of threes with items you already have at home.
