Globe collection - plays off the blue accent color!
Collection of globes above armoire in Justin's bedroom
Another mantel, another collection. Notice how that one tall globe makes this display work. Without the marked difference in height, the pop would go out of the collection. Remember when you are collecting that varying heights will aid greatly in achieving memorable looks.

room now becomes the heart of the home, with glimpses into the collection a constant presence from every space. A partially translucent glass wall (derived from the genetic code of a Harbor Seal) and shelving system protects the collection and divides the owner’s study from the adjacent family room.
