We've talked about arranging items by colour before. It's a simple way to create a pleasing order among a group of objects. If you have a bunch of objects in one space, like a bookcase, why not take it one step further and put ROYGBIV to work...

For those of you who may have forgotten the lessons of their grade school art class, ROYGBIV stands for red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet aka the order in which the colours are arranged in a rainbow. It's an order which is naturally pleasing to the eye and can bring together a large group of objects which might normally not go together.
