I recently came across a fantastic post about doing just that. I love the colour idea most. In a perfect world, our houses would just absorb everything so we could continue adding to our collections without a care in the world. Space however, is always a concern, and this post helps you concentrate your efforts on great ways to display things.
I know i'll be trying this with the next vase I find!
Coles notes on the article? Decorate with antiques using one of the following methods:
- Organize by colour
- Organize by collection
- Keep things close for conversation pieces
- Mix old and new items.
