Topic #2 - Integrating Collection in Decor - Retro


 In the meantime, here are photos of author, Stephanie Farago’s former home that I blogged on November 7, 2010.   

Hard to believe these photos appeared in a magazine 25 years ago! But, you can see the style was very different and colorful. It was very popular to have a lot of items on display……that is why, 25 years later, I’ve had to downsize. But, being a collector by nature, I do not believe I’ll ever be a minimalist!

That being said, I’d have to say, given the current style, keep your displays simple. Make sure you don’t get carried away. Try to group them by theme and/or color. You can always switch items around or replace them with other items you have. It’ll give you variety and the ability to enjoy every piece of your collection. It might even help you decide what you want and what you don’t want to keep. So, I guess this ties in with Topic #1 – Curating/Downsizing a Collection!

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.

Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
