We're not collectors by any means but we do love displaying groupings of similar items that we've collected over time. We've rounded up our favorite collections to display-- be sure to let us know what makes its way into your home after the jump.Plates
We never get tired of seeing someone's plate collection
displayed on the wall. Whether they're a collection of plates from a road trip or finds from flea markets--they're sure to add charm and character to any space.
Salon style artwork is our favorite way to display this sort of collection. That way, all your favorite pieces can end up on one wall for a truly eclectic vibe.
Anything goes in this collection--but we love the offbeat especially. Just remember to keep this collection well edited so the look is diverse but seems uncluttered.
No matter the season, shells always keep our home feeling upbeat and fresh. You can display a collection of beach finds in the bathroom, bedroom or entryway for that year-round vibe.
We love the scholarly look and feel that map decor lends to a space (especially when they're vintage finds like these
). The blues and greens are also great accent colors for spaces that need a bit of cheering up.
To us, a wall of books next to a cozy chair and reading light equals much needed "me time". And while a collection of books doesn't have to take up an entire room we love how a small collection of books adds warmth to a space.
Just like books, records add that familiar vibe that make a home feel welcoming. Grouped together in a vintage wine box
or stacked in an non-working fireplace
, vinyl records are always fun to look at.
