You can have a favorite color, or a favorite movie. Why can't you have a favorite thing? Something you want to have a bunch of? To surround yourself with so that it sparks joy in your heart every time you come home?

That's what a collection does for these 15 people, who have shared their homes (and the collections displayed within them) with us though house tours. Take a peek and see if you can find some inspiration to display an old collection or maybe even start a new one.
