There’s an art to displaying collectibles. Here are a few visual examples and some tips and tricks!
I’m kind of anti-minimalist when it comes to my own home. There is nothing more cozy to me then a house chock-full of interesting things that convey the personalities of the people who live there. What better way to show who you are and what you love then to display your most cherished objects and collections. Here are a few collections and display ideas that have me inspired today.
There is something I usually find a little spooky about old mirrors, but this collection is so charming and perfect I’m not spooked at all. The way the mirrors reflect the nearby window is also a clever way of bringing more light into the room.
How sweet is this collection of Handmade Kokeshi dolls in their own little fabric-lined boxes? This would be an easy and fun way to hang any small collectibles.
If you don’t already have a collection to call your own, but would like to start one, you should check out Lisa Congdon’s inspiring A Collection a Day. Every day for a year Lisa took a photograph of a different collection and her project has recently been turned into a book. I can’t get over this collection of old boxer photographs. So dapper.
I’m sure we all have a few collections around the house that we don’t even know about. Why not come up with a special way to show them off? It can be as simple as a shadowbox of old photos or a shelf dedicated to your favourite souvenirs or mementos.
