As the season turns, I get an overwhelming urge to shed the old and freshen my home. What pieces can I do away with? What pieces should I add? Which ones are near to my heart? This spring, I wanted to give you some ideas on ways to clear the clutter and organize your most valued collections.
Stamp collections often get placed in books or boxes for safekeeping but I think we can do better for those limited editions. I love the idea of creating mini collections from your larger collection and organizing them into a gallery wall.
Who has figurines that they’ve saved from their childhood? They only gather dust on shelves so get them out of storage this spring and into shadow boxes with custom mat cuts to create the perfect backdrop and scene.
Pin collections can feel overwhelming when not displayed correctly. Try creating a fun shape of an object using your pins. Your collection will feel like art!
Some people like to use their collections on a regular basis. Custom builds can take this into consideration while organizing your items. With the right frame and design your entire collection can be viewed for easy grabbing.
Tickets are a fun collection that can tell the story of your youth and travels but without proper organization they feel like boxes of paper. Give these prized tokens the importance they deserve to adequately showcase your journey. I love this example with simple clean rows of tickets, fastened to a backdrop that contrasts with the outer mat.
Knick-knacks are often displayed on shelves or cabinets, but as the collection grows does that mean further cabinets and shelves have to be added? As an alternate option that in the spirit of spring-cleaning keeps things to a minimum, gather your prized collection in a series of frames adorned with pedestals and the perfect velvet matting to make your items feel special while taking up less real state in your home.
