Are you looking for creative ways to show off your collections? How about this inspiration from Jonathan Adler. He created this starburst mirror… composed of 64 Barbies (I counted). It was for the real-life Barbie Malibu Dream House, which he decorated when our favorite girl turned 50 back in March. At the extreme, this example shows how to pull a collection into a whole that’s greater than the sum of its parts. A tried and true trick of decorating is to group items together — rather than scatter them throughout the room. The mass creates power and graphic appeal all its own. Have fun with your collectibles, readers. Don’t store them away in the basement or boxes. Photo courtesy Jonathan Adler Interior Design – see more of the Barbie House and other Adler interiors here.
