Odd numbers are more interesting then even. Largest items are seen first in a design when prints are same color. Color is seen first when viewing objects of differing sizes in a group. Adjust gutters, the space between objects, for symmetry. Plan for the viewing height of average person, ----- not tall man or short woman. Look at the overall room for designs that balance each other.</p></li></ul>
