How To Stylishly Display Your Collections

Whether it’s coins, old records, or china teapots, if you enjoy collecting you’ll probably want to display your prized items in your home rather than keeping them stored away. But how to show them off in a way that doesn’t make you look like a crazy hoarder? These examples should offer some tips and inspiration on how to display your collections.

This image was really cool, I loved the clean cut layout of this image. How the shelves of the camera's are set so perfectly in the centre of the white wall, the desk/cupboard at the bottom adds an element to the image that makes it more interesting. The collection of camera's have been laid out so beautifully and perfectly spaced, the gap on the second shelf leads the viewer to wonder: is that camera being used to take the photograph? - KW:

Simple shelves are the perfect solution to displaying any number of things, including this vintage camera collection, which draw just the right amount of attention to themselves.

Alternatively, you can choose to be a bit more creative with the shelves you use and their placement so as to help make your collection really stand out.

Rather than hanging your pictures and paintings separately, gather them together to create an attractive gallery wall.

If you have a fascination with rocks and fossils, don’t keep them stuffed away in boxes – give them pride of place in your home. Yes, even rocks can look beautiful when exhibited with a bit of panache.

I love the idea of letting your functional kitchen stuff become your kitchen decor; how simple and pretty. Plus, who needs a better excuse to put in a coffee bar?:

Lacking cupboard space in your kitchen for your cups and mugs? Then make a feature of them by hanging them on your wall.

Don’t hide away your jaunty hat collection. Show it off with an artistically arranged wall display.

Framed shopping bags. Its kinda materialistic, but some of the bags are really pretty and end up in a corner in your closet:

Whether you collect old football shirts, comic books, or shopping bags from your favourite designer/boutique stores, these too can be easily displayed – simply frame them and hang them.

DIY Photo Wall Hanging. I love this way of displaying photos with the natural touch of using a twig or branch. It looks so neat and unusual!:

A unique way to show off those treasured family photos – and it’s an approach that can be adapted to a variety of other collectible items, such as postcards or concert tickets.

An alternative to this would be to create a collage. They’re easy to put together, and look great once finished.

We dig the way this plate display extends across the corner from one wall to the next.:

It’s not just what you display that matters, but how you display it. These decorative plates snake across one wall to the next, which makes them much more interesting than if they were simply grouped together.

I like this small bookshelf where the books need to be placed with covers out and resting end and end over each other.:

If you can spare the shelf space, arrange your favourite books cover out – be warned, though, your friends will probably spend more time than usual nosing through them.

Amassed on a shelf or tabletop, in varying sizes and colors, a collection of globes can create a really beautiful display!:

A table or sideboard not being used for anything else could easily become an exclusive area to display your collectibles.
