Maybe the word “collections” is a little bit overstated…these are more like “groupings”..which is absolutely fine…How ever you state it, we all know that by placing similar or duplicate items side by side, you can make a bold statement..often very inexpensively. SO whether it is a grouping of cheapo/thrift store white plates hung creatively, old globes, white pitchers, books or small paintings..the more the better. In fact, less is not more I always say..more is more!!;;
I have a small “collection” of these old suitcases..a few in one spot and more in another. Honestly, in a small house, they make great storage…and I have moved them and used them all over the house. And the look is classic.
My blue and white collection used to be on my fireplace/”built-in” wall but I moved it to this armoire top a few years ago and LOVE IT! The “collection” includes pieces from my wedding dishes, gifts, and a few large and old (but cracked, that is how I was able to afford them) pieces we got on a trip to England.
This collage of various sized framed prints over our dresser is certainly a “mish mash” but I have hung them close together to try and give some cohesiveness and a big “punch.” This is a fairly large space and I did not have a big piece of artwork to hang here so I hung a bunch of small things, but close together! I will share a wider shot of this wall soon.
What do you like to “group”..what pleases you to see “en masse”?????
