Keep on reading for a sneak peek at what Chapter 6 is all about...


Chapter 6 - Collect, Curate and Display

Show off in style! Chapter 6 is totally dedicated to helping you accessorise and curate your home with beautiful collections, ornaments, memories, display pieces and more, all of which will help you put your own unique stamp on your home.

Jane and Lucy's Top 5 Tips:

  1. You are individual in every way, so the secret to creating a unique look is simply to express your own personality in the home.
  2. Always curate (sort the wheat from the chaff) and display your chosen pieces well - remember less is more!
  3. Curate collections of vintage cameras, pin badges, handbags, magazines or anything that you love and display them on your walls, shelves and cabinets. The more personal you can make the display the more eye-catching and unique it will be!
  4. The kitchen is a great place to create a display. Collect vintage bread boards, wooden spoons, beaten up pans, antique bottles and handmade ceramics to create a beautiful feature.
  5. Let your creativity run wild and create a picture wall using artwork, images from books, old letters, postcards, album covers, photographs and so on.
