I’m a geegaw magnet. I have a miniature tramp art chair that sits atop a stack of books, some crystal turtles and mercury glass vases that are show-offs on an end table, a collection of print blocks that fill a book shelf, an ironstone bowl filled with pine cones, and more and more and more... And sometimes it feels like these little objects are reproducing in the night and taking over and becoming just annoying clutter. So, over the years, I’ve made myself take some unknown decorator’s advice and buy no object smaller than my head. This limits those clusters of little bitty things on every surface. And some surfaces are blissfully empty.
With all this in mind, I still love to see what others collect and how it’s displayed. Here are how designers and stylists have artfully arranged their collectables, souvenirs, and object d’art.
