Vintage collections are a great way to add character to a space, but they can look cluttered without a well considered display. On the other hand, the right kind of arrangement can elevate a collection of cheap finds into a work of art...

The images above illustrate a few different styles. In Amy's home, a hodge-podge of photos are displayed in a rotating collage in a postcard-hanger on the wall. Tim used a set of empty frames to highlight his camera collection. Another approach to the grid shows a collection of vintage flashcards on a wall. To display their pottery collection, Christy and John grouped similar shapes together for consistency. You can also group by color or size. In the last photo, from Country Living, various items are artfully arranged on a shelf, while a neutral color palette keeps things simple.
