Vidicom CEO Christy Ferer says a house isn't a home until it's filled with your favorite things. An old crock here. A teapot there. Your mom's Vaseline glass. Magnifying glasses picked up from your travels. Textile print blocks. A fistful of shells. Anything and everything that you enjoy looking at. Artists surround themselves with objects and inspire and feed their creative side, and so should you. You probably have a collection already without realizing it. Those beautifully colorful foreign banknotes that you will never spend. Things made from the same material, or of the same shape, color, subject, or texture. Stuck away in a drawer, it's just clutter-displayed, it's a collection.
