Christy Ferer Shares Her Suggestions on Displays
Stuff--we all have it. We can group it or pare it down. Highlight it. Create themes. Link colors and shapes. Mix the functional with the ultra luxurious.
Christy Ferer, Vidicom CEO, says live with your favorite things where you can see them every day. Arrange them until you find a configuration that speaks to you. You'll know it when it happens.
A Few Rules to Break:
"Objects of value create the most impressive display."
Christy Ferer says not true. Even the most mundane objects can be elevated to importance, whether isolated against a great white surface or grouped in multiples. Good things are worth repeating, even dried weeds in simple ceramic flasks.
Build a great wall of china with mismatched tag sales plates, tureen or sugar bowl covers, or ironstone platters. Or isolate one of something you like in a corner or in a fireplace. Stones, shells, driftwood... everything and anything you like.
