the friday files

One of the things I love seeing in a house is a well curated collection of objects. Massed together they instantly make a statement about the home owner and often tell us a little story about what this person may be about. I'm always curious how people start collections: why this object and not that one, what started the collection, and what motivates them to keep it going. When I saw this house owned by fashion designer Nina van Rooijen I was immediately fascinated by her selection of well curated objects. Who would have thought collecting old sporting equipment (among other things) could look so good! Definitely gives me some ideas to think the next time I go to the flea market.
