How to stop your collections from looking like clutter

  • Look for iconic, locally made pieces and everyday items that can easily be upcycled to add vintage flair to your home.
  • Use a console table or drinks cabinet with glass doors to store and showcase a selection of your favourite ceramics.
  • Fill a shelf with coloured glassware.
  • Display small trinkets in a vintage printer’s tray or on an ornament shelf.
  • Group decanters and other decorative items on a bar trolley.
  • Hang plates, artwork, textiles, wall hangings or mirrors in clusters.
