Every material thing can be viewed as part of a collection. Filling our closets, bookshelves, apartments, iTunes libraries, and browser bookmarks are compilations of objects we have accumulated, sought out, hunted down, been given, found, (stolen,) downloaded, or otherwise gathered; all constituting collections. Design blogs, too, are collections of projects, photos, videos, and written blurbs. The nature of Collections, though, lends these seemingly casual aesthetic assemblages the implicit power of determining and propagating taste, style, and whole sub-fields of design—and as Viewers we take part in the process.
As of late I’ve been having grand ideas of redesigning my spaces in my home. Which means in my free time or at any given moment you can find me searching the internets for furniture, sheets, frames, and color schemes. I love scanning flipbooks for interesting design ideas and uncommon color palettes.
