When friends from the vintage world visit my house for the first time a comment that I frequently hear is “It’s so uncluttered”. And it’s true: while I’m in no way a minimalist, I don’t like clutter. However that doesn’t mean that I don’t like collecting, in fact I collect a wide range of stuff: jewelry, clothing, furniture, art, ceramics, glass, textiles, rugs and more. However, I consider myself a collector with a lower case “c”: I don’t collect systematically, I just collect what I like and use. Here are some of my tips for how to collect what you love, yet limit and contain the clutter.
