Designers are collectors

With the popularity of cluttered home and hoarding shows, I have been taking a good hard look at the stuff I keep. I like my bits and bobs. My little collections have special places in my home and heart. I don’t keep things that I don’t love, but I sure could make do with alot less.

The “stuff” inspires creativity. I could not work in a sterile modern environment. Organized, yes. Minimal, no.

I also gravitate towards things that have some age on them…a sense of history. Shiny and new works for electronics and appliances.

To quote one of the ladies on a hoarding show, “I keep it because I like it”. Makes perfect sense to me.
