Why Don’t You…?

…display your camera as artwork for the world to enjoy?

Face it – your extensive collection of vintage snaps aren’t getting enough attention lately, so why not pull them out of storage and hang them as artwork? Not only will you be making a stylish statement, but you’re much more likely to grab your favorite Polaroid and explore the city next time you walk by your pretty new art wall.

Happy framing!

The Art of the Display

I've been thinking quite a lot about how I'll display my hundreds of prints, posters and artful pieces when I move into my new home. I know it's unhealthy to house such an artsy obsession (and certainly not storage-friendly!), but I flock to a pretty picture like bees to honey. Or something like that.

Anyway, I've got a few options for art displays. Care to join in on the decision-making process?:

Let’s Chat Collections

Do you collect anything? I've been slowly adding to a variety of collections for years, but am not nearly at the quantity I'd like to be. I suppose I have hoarding tendencies, so collecting has never been hard for me. In fact, there's something oddly comforting about color coordinating, sorting and sifting through similar objects to form something larger in theory. It's a lovely thing, yes?

Creative Home Ideas From Storefront Displays

If you're anything like me, you're easily inspired just walking down the street. Yet one of my favorite ways (by far!) to glean inspiration is from storefront windows and displays at my favorite shopping haunts. They've certainly come a long way from displaying mannequins in awkward positions, yes?

My favorite storefront to peruse? Anthropologie. Whether it be paper planes or fake snow, they've always got something fabulous on board, and in fact, I've stolen quite a few home decor tips from their recent displays! Here are three ideas I can't wait to try in my own home (all sourced from Ruthi Auda!):

1. Impromptu Art. Place anything under a bell jar, and suddenly, it blooms into a marvelous installation of display goodness. Don't believe me? Have you ever seen a light bulb look more artsy? Actually, we'll answer that in #3.

2. Nailed It. Want a quirky house number display that you can guarantee no one else on the block will be donning? Simply nail in your house numbers, courtesy of this #40 above. Can't wait to try this one at home!

3. Solidarity Shines. Sure, one lone light bulb can technically light up a room, but not quite like hundreds bundled together. I'm a firm believer that sometimes, more is more. And in this case? More is stunning.

Thanks for the inspiration, Anthropologie!
