Are there special things that you love to see in mass?
I've always had a sentimental side, and it has been difficult for me to throw things away that have had meaning for me, so I understand my clients who have "things" that they just can't get rid of. However, collections can be a challenge to creating a pleasing design.
So I've had fun seeing how other designers have tackled the issue of multiples.
Crystal boxes as a coffee table display are unique and become a great conversation starter!
A collection of interesting glass bottles and decanters can be incorporated into a vignette.
My mother was a bird lover, so I painted many small bird pictures for her over the years, so they now live in a collection similar to this at my house.
Antiques are widely collected, but I love the way these old urns are displayed in their own antique shelving.
Majolica is highly collectible, and it almost requires an antique hutch for display, don't you think?
I would die for a collection of copper pots, but I'd need a kitchen this large to display them.....that'd be ok!
I've always loved transfer ware, and in black and white, in mass, they make a lovley traditional statement.
How about a modern approach to the botanical? This looks like a nature project gone artistic. Great way to bring something organic into a space.
Hanging baskets on the wall is not a new thought, but when they are as beautiful as these, it's a great way to show them off!
Since turquoise has become such a popular color again (come back 60's!), globes have also seen a resurgence as a design element. Their color and shape make them a perfect thing to collect.
Silhouettes were a staple in everyone's decor when I was growing up, but giving them a modern twist like this takes them out of the attic and back on the wall.
I'd love a collection of silver loving cups!
Using old cutting boards as wall art was a new one for me, but I love it!
Oh, to have so many Hermes scarves that you can frame them as wall art!
Who knew the humble tea pot could create such art? Displayed in a rainbow is pretty genius if you ask me!
Suitcases as a table? Who knew, but what a great place to show off other collectibles you've gathered!
Most anything can be collected and displayed. It brings history and family and warmth into your home......But.......
I think I'll draw the line at the duck decoy!

I couldn't miss an opportunity to share a bit-o-green with you on this St. Paddy's day.
And may you too, find gold at the end of the rainbow! Enjoy your day!
