Just imagine what adding an antique family heirloom to the mix could do to a room. Many collections are easy to integrate into your décor. For example, display “like” items. My sister in law collected for a time fish lures. After she had collected a great assortment she had them mounted and framed. My mother in law collects cobalt glassware. She has creatively displayed them on a narrow shelf that wraps her kitchen. Also, don’t forget, antiques or new items should be grouped in odd numbers: odd numbers are more appealing to the eye! For me the most difficult antique to integrate into my home was furniture. Finding that right spot when it may not match the scale and décor of a room. I still have an antique chair that I am searching a spot for. Don’t give up. You have to be truly creative when placing these pieces.

So take your time when decorating with antiques. If you don’t have a place for it today wait a while. Our tastes change, we move furniture around as if they were chess pieces and soon that piece that you could not find a place for will be found!
