There’s a fine line between being a collector and outright hoarder. We have collected a few ideas to help you display your favorite things without someone calling an intervention!
Not everything looks best arranged side-by-side on a shelf. For more playful items, like these try a shadow box! A grouping of like objects in one space is dramatic, try concentrating your collection in one area for the biggest impact.Place bottles randomly or in an organized manner, by color, size, or type. A truly large collection can be the centerpiece of a room. For safety, secure the cabinet or bookcase to the wall to ensure that it cannot accidentally tip over. Collections should be displayed as art objects, but not in the same way a museum or art gallery would hang them. They should enhance your decor.There doesn’t have to be a rhyme or reason for a collection, sometimes they just happen! It’s whatever strikes your fancy.
Sometimes just a simple cabinet can be the best way to display a collection of dishes. Paint the shelves white so they don’t compete with the color or design of the dishes.Using Collections as Artwork is a great way to have them “live” with you more than something that’s framed or closed off in some way. Grouping a small amount of like-objects on the wall makes treasured objects double as artwork and lets them be a part of discussions whenever guests visit.A wall of suitcases makes a dramatic display!Instead of tucking your collections away behind the glass walls of a curio cabinet, group several pieces with other items on a set of shelves.
We hope we have given you a few ideas about how to display your treasured collections, or start collecting things you love!
