We all have them collections. Somehow it started with one little ceramic bird and now you have a collection of birds in various shapes sizes and colors that you have amassed over the years. What is the proper way to display a collection such as this? Well, lets start with the improper way, and the mistake that most of us make, scattering pieces of the collection throughout your home. One little bird may tweet from a fireplace mantle, while another little bird somehow flew all the way over to perch on the coffee table.
While it is really fun to look through showrooms that are full of brand new modern furnishings, do not get carried away and buy everything at one time and one place. Doing this results in a common interior design mistake buying everything matchy, resulting in a home that lacks character. How do we add character? Slowly, over time. It can take years to have your home fully complete and fully designed.
