Keeping it personal with collections
In keeping interiors truly personal to my clients, I often ask them if they have collections or what their hobbies are. One of my clients has a fascination with plates and loves collecting them. She had a great collection to begin with and so we decided to create an installation to show them off. We picked through her awesome collection and picked out all her green ones, and them made it our mission to go into full "collection mode" and search eBay and some local vintage stores to find others.
Its amazing that once you mix it up the old and new how the "granniest" of plates can looked oddly cool. To add a fun spin to the installation we decided to install it on an outside corner of their dining room and cut some plates to add to the unexpected location. In the end, this was an installation that was really fun to put together. My clients have an amazing art collection and they tell me that when friends see this installation for the first time they often ask who the artist is.
