When it comes to the finishing touches for a room why
not by pass the glass vase option and create a unique collection of decorative
Special objects that inspire, reflect your personality
or inject a sense of quirky, curiosity for the viewer will be a rewarding and versatile
way to complete your newly finished or re-vamped room.
A personalised collection with objects linked by theme and consistency
Collections can comprise of just about anything, from
the obvious like art or photos to the obscure like leaves or written letters. Go for what
appeals to you and use your particular décor style, favorite color or a shared
theme guide your choices.
The secret of a successful collection relies on three
things, size, variety and consistency. These are the keys to making your
collection wow - in a good way!
When it comes to size, it doesn’t matter how big or
small your pieces are so long as there is a pleasing increment in the sizes
The consistent height of three tall bottles provides helps this collection work
If your collection is made of completely different
objects, great, you’ll have the variety box ticked. But be sure there is at
least one common link between the items to balance variety with consistency.
You can do this by choosing several items that share a
color theme. Otherwise look for pieces that have a similarity in height, size,
shape or material.
Artwork in a variety of shapes is linked by limiting the frame colours
You can opt in our out of using uneven numbers when
grouping objects. Whether you are planning to hang things on a wall, sit them
on a surface or suspend them from the ceiling, consider what number of pieces
looks best for the space you have and go with what is naturally more
stimulating and pleasing to the eye.
Using even numbers of objects works
So use the one third rule as a guide, when you are
working out how to arrange or place your group. Perhaps your one third is in
the overall placement, a third of the way along a shelf. It could be those
height increments we mentioned before or even by separating a large collection
in to three groups on the same surface.
Objects in increasing sizes makes for a restful collection
The time and care you put into creating your collection
will shine through, no matter how casual the finished look may be. So don’t worry about getting things right or wrong
because the whole object of decorating with objects is – that it’s fun. So try
out your ideas, play, change and enjoy it.
