Surely you often paid attention to the fact thatNow it is fashionable to hang two identical lamps next to each other, put two identical vases. Today we will tell you what is the reason for the popularity of such a reception, what items to choose and where to put them. The result is interesting effects decorating the interior. If you've heard of the "rule of three", the strength of compositions with an odd number of elements, then perhaps the idea of "pairing" will surprise you. But where the troika attracts attention, the deuce works at other levels, strengthening the impact of the main techniques, giving the interior depth and expanding space. So store your favorite items in double quantity - we'll tell you how to use them to create a certain effect. 1. Effect of depth: mirrors Two identical mirrors opposite each other create an endless corridor, increasing the space, more precisely, erasing its boundaries in principle. Another interesting variant of this technique is to hang a mirror on the wall from a material with a reflective effect. The way to not only increase the scale of the room, but also blur the line between decoration and decoration, drawing attention to the geometry of the room. 2. Symmetry effect: lamps Symmetrical arrangement of objects at the psychological level causes a sense of harmony of space, reliability and confidence. The decor repeating itself, signals to the observer: everything is all right, it's quiet here. Most often this way, duplicate the lamp, but think, for example, of double tables or identical chairs. Our opinion: - Symmetry gives the interior solidity and emphasizes order, but the asymmetry in the decor allows the look to travel and makes the room more interesting. Combine these two approaches: for example, design two identical nightstands in different ways, and in vases-twins let them be bouquets of different colors. 3. Maneuverability effect: pouffes, tables and chairs Two identical objects in the interior create space for maneuver. Moving them together, you increase the effect and useful area, and by placing them in opposite ends of the room, generate additional opportunities for use. Two armchairs without handles, set side by side - is almost a sofa. And decorated with different patterns - two completely independent design elements. 4. The effect of coziness: textiles Several layers - an extremely practical solution. Multilayer works great for the effect of coziness - in fashion, and in design. Even on a purely physical level, two layers of cloth instead of one in the decor of the bed or window, twice better protect us from drafts, which means that they enhance the feeling of warmth and relaxation. Our opinion: - Do not overdo it: if you literally fill the room with carpets, bedspreads, curtains and curtains, then create the effect of the oriental bazaar, and even increase the amount of dust in the house at times. It is quite enough tulle and curtains on the window, bedspreads and blankets on the bed, several pillows in the living room. 5. The contrast effect: carpets Put a more spectacular carpet on top of another, neutral - a great way to make the decor more interesting by playing on contrasts. Try combinations of different colors - bright and pastel, textures - smooth and rough, patterns - floral and geometric, to achieve the desired effect. 6. Effect of amplification of the impact: pictures of two paintings that are near. They do not need to be exactly the same - images in similar frames, with similar themes, are written in the same key. Their impact will increase, plots - enter into a dialogue. In the end, two posters cover twice the surface of the wall, than one - sometimes this is also important.
