How to Display Collections So They Don’t Clash With Your Decor
Grandma-approved decor is on the rise with home trends like maximalism hitting *all* the feeds. If you’re already onboard, then your penchant for accumulating knick-knacks has probably amassed a collection or two worth displaying. It’s just a question of finding the right ones for your style. Scroll on for some seriously stunning collections that put the finishing touch on a space.
1. Rainbow Glassware Collection: While it’s rare to find an entire collection of multicolored glassware, over time you can build your own. They’ll start in an ombre pattern on a shelf, and before you know it, you’ve got an alcove dedicated to them. (via A Beautiful Mess)
2. Portrait Gallery: Portraits tell a story better than Instagram ever will. Start with a woman who has a penetrating gaze and keep going until you’ve accumulated a circus worth of characters. (via Clay Austin Photography / Glitter Guide)
3. DIY Spoon Collection: Give a spoon collection a fresh spin with some paint and go for scale to really make an artistic impact. This is a set you can proudly display in your kitchen or dining room, without overwhelming a space or taking up that coveted shelf area. (via A Joyful Riot)
4. Globes, Globes, Globes: Instead of hanging up maps everywhere, keep an eye out for globes. You can pinpoint where you’ve been and where you’re dreaming of going. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to find some really cool colors and stains. (via Herz & Blut)
