This post is a bit of sneak peek of an amazing architect's own home in Columbus, Indiana. The whole home is filled with interesting details, but we thought the basic idea of framing multiples of a single type of artwork, photo or collectible was worth taking a look at as a way to add interest and a warm, personal touch to nearly any room while maintaining a contemporary look.

In this case,the kitchen includes a collection of vintage hankercheifs, pressed and framed, arranged in a grid; the guest room shows off blowups of travel photos; a home office has an entire wall of family photos, both old and new; and the master bedroom has a series of colorful art prints floating in black frames.

Each of them are very different in content, but the idea is the same - get your collections out from the drawer or photo album (or off the hard drive) and up onto the walls!
