Interior Architect Yasmine Ghoniem shares her expert advice about displaying a collection in your home.
So you’ve got a collection of sports memorabilia, coins, stamps, ceramics – just because you have multiples of these objects, doesn’t mean you can’t have them on display
When it comes to collections, the world is your oyster. You name it,you can collect it, and then show it off!
Try selecting pieces for display that have the same shape, colour and form, and all tell the same story.
In fact, collecting is story-telling in itself – you’re putting your personality on display and showing visitors to your home what matters to you.
Incorporate platforms to create a sense of hierarchy, or consider placing the collection under a dome to give it importance.
There’s a reason you’ve collected items, you’ve spent a lot of time and money and its probably one of your really big passions. So instead of hiding them away, put them on display so you get to enjoy them every day.
