Now that may be based on one or more or a combination of the styles, that is your choice. The most important thing is that it is you & expresses who you are & your loves & creative expression!. If you would like to go with one of the styles then do so. It’s your choice. Research it. Plan it out. It’s what inspires you to move forward that’s important here.
Display your collectibles in clusters or groupings to create a theme. Think big & display them en masse & make a grand statement. A fireplace & mantel is a perfect place to display your family photos, collectibles, ornaments, a tall vase with willow or dramatic fresh flowers, or holiday decorations.

If you’re not sure yet, go back & revisit Ideas & Tips to help inspire you further to get your plan into action.

Work it room by room, in priority order.
Be careful using colors that are too dark, or too strong – you should tread carefully with dark browns, dark reds & dark greens – they can overpower a room & make it seem daunting, uncomfortable, unrelaxing & even claustrophobic.
