This post will give you tips on how to arrange accessories in your home. It will also help you decide where and how to display them.

First, you’ll want to group the items that are similar by color, shape or material.

Next, vary the height of the items. Place different sized items together to make it interesting. Even if they are the exact same thing, varying the height will call attention to it. Try to make sure that nothing is smaller than an orange or it will get lost in the arrangement.

Now, stagger the pieces from front to back. If you have 3 pieces, place them in a triangle. if you have more than 3 pieces, work with overlapping triangles. Always go for odd numbers when deciding how many items to place.

You can also choose to have a focal point and have the accessories gather around the focal point.

Be careful not to overdo it with too many items. It will begin to look like clutter. If you have a lot of items you would like to display, place a few out at a time and rotate them. It will keep the room feeling fresh and new.

If you have a lot of similar items, (like a collection) it is better to group them together than spread them throughout the room. It will be more interesting to see them all together.
