The other day I was asked if I had ever photographed a homeowner that collected a variety of things and, if so, how were they displayed. I have shot a number of "collectors", but Patty Redford was one the best in terms of displaying her treasures. Thought I'd share Patty's collections with you.
This story was originally shot for Canadian Home and Country magazine, and her kitchen nook ended up on the cover. Sadly, the magazine is no longer published.
Grindley and McCoy pottery
Vintage globes. Love these!
More McCoy in pretty turquoise, in a relaxing reading nook.
Vintage tin trucks.
Custom shelf built to showcase tin cars and trucks.
Patty also collects children's readers and vintage mirrors.
A vintage tin milk truck in her minimal white kitchen. Take note of the glass pitchers over the window.
What do you collect? Hate clutter? I'd love to know!
Happy Friday everyone! Have a lovely weekend. See you on Monday with a new addition to my "Baked On Monday"!
