Curating a collection

Our client had boxes, boxes and more boxes of art, artifacts and antiques collected over several decades by her family. The huge collection ranged from treasures acquired while living abroad in Africa and the Middle East to folk art from the South and unique pieces. Each item represented a beloved memory and had its own story.

We tackled the collection box by box and decorated room by room. Displaying these coveted items brought life to our client’s space, turning her house into a home. Eventually, the walls, shelves and space showcased the many eclectic items and told a story of her family’s life journey.

We enjoyed bringing a cohesiveness to the space and tying everything together. The result…our client lives every day surrounded by memories of a well-traveled life.
