Displaying a collection on a wall is a unique, personal and beautiful way to decorate your home. From your grandmother’s antique China, to glass bottles collected at flea markets or maps picked up over years of travel, there are infinite possibilities both in terms of budget and aesthetic.
While the ways to actually hang the pieces on your wall are a bit more limited (plate hangers, shelving or wooden blocks are among the most common), there is still room for creativity when choosing how you showcase your collection.
We recently came across this great idea when working on an installation project for one of our clients: displaying a collection on a wall with brightly colored pedestal sconces.
In this case, antique China in classic blue-and-white patterns rests atop bright red sconces, creating an eye-catching color contrast.
Steal the idea for your own home by spray-painting shelves or sconces in a color that compliments (or completely contrasts) your collection and your room.
