I've heard it said that one is an item, two is a pair and three is a collection. When you put things in a grouping of three or more, they can become very interesting; especially when you vary the shapes, sizes and colors. Anything from vases to shells to Herend figurines can be quite fetching when placed in a group. Here are a few ideas for making the most out of the things you love enough to collect!

A modern spin on the classic plate collection.

A pink pillow displaying a collection of teeny perfume bottles on a safety pin?? Yes, please!

Ahh the bookshelf. One of my favorite things to decorate. Books are not only functional in that they can create height, they also show a lot about the people who live in the home. Personal touches like shells, little sculptures and family photos add interest to the shelf. All three of the above pictures are from Absolutely Beautiful Things.
