Height Variation Please
Much like the world we live in - it takes all kind of kinds to create beauty. ;)
Utilizing height variation helps to make an area look more interesting. Like we've talked about with color, you want to create an opportunity for the eye to travel from one item to the next.
Height variation in your decor makes a grouping so much better. (Imagine the tall candle hadn't already been enjoyed so much already. )
None of the items on this coffee table are particularly spectacular to look at on their own but by grouping them with other items of varied height, a whole cozy vibe that looks "accidentally" awesome is created.
*Bonus tip* books are a very very easy way to create height variation!!
