Treasured personal possessions are what turns a house into a home, but finding ways to display them can be a challenge.
Whether you have a single treasured objet d’art or a collection of nature finds gathered on a country walk, a family of framed photographs or a set of leatherbound books, a trio of glass candlesticks or an evergrowing pile of bone china plates, here you will find new and exciting ways to present them. In Creative Display, Geraldine James shows how you can create the perfect table setting from mismatched plates and cutlery trawled from a fleamarket, how the simplest set of shelves can be arranged to create a miniature still-life, and how essential storage can become something beautiful in its own right. With a natural talent for seeking out the unusual, Geraldine introduces new ways to upcycle the everyday and
recycle the reclaimed—a weathered barn door becomes a striking side table, a stack of magazines reinvents itself as a lamp table, and a gently rusting metal radiator cover finds a new life as a display shelf for a treasured collected of seashells. In Geraldine’s hands, the everyday item becomes a work of art and even the most mundane objects can be seen in a new light. In Creative Display you will find new and
unusual ways to turn all your treasures into exciting art forms.
