Book Description

8 Mar 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Messy, but with some good examples 25 Feb 2013
By Saki
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am an architect. I've ordered the book while studying professional ways to frame and display art, collection items and personal valuables in different interiors.

The first impression after listing through the book was poor. The examples shown look messy, do-it-yourself and suitable for summer houses or rustic environment rather then contemporary house. Yet, after reading through, I've understood that it looks like do-it-yourself because the displays are shown without surrounding environment. It's hard to get the impression of the entire space where the display is set. It would be a huge thing if the book would include the plans of the room where the display is set, or at least a panoramic photo to get a better feeling of the effect of display on the space. Hence the four stars, otherwise book is worth of reading, examples are well explained.
