Collections... They are one of my favorite things to use when styling my own home or the home of a client.  It is usually made up of something that would be a beautiful item on its own but when put together with other like items can really make a more impactful statement.  Collections can come from a wide range of items...books, boxes, shells, pictures, paper weights, art, tea pots, plates, figurines, blue and white porcelain...the list is endless.   Really, it is about what items are special to you and through the process of collecting, it allows you to tell the special story around each one.

For years, I have collected boxes.  I adore silver boxes and Limoges boxes, wooden boxes, tortoise shell boxes.  Large boxes, small boxes. ( I have even been know to collect shoe boxes!)   I have been collecting them since I was in college and it is such fun to have something special to "hunt" for when I travel.   

My mother collects tea pots, my husband collects cuff links, my sister collects Herend figurines, and my mother-in-law collects cookbooks.   Is there something special you collect?  I would love to hear about it!

Happy Monday!

  2. my mom collects little boxes as well! Whenever I see a pretty one I get it for her. I don't really collect anything...maybe books...I adore books

  3. My mom collects clowns. Yes, it's as strange as it may sound. I love how you styled your collections.
