A Note From Anna

"Cherished objects collected and placed on tables and shelves within my home make me feel at home. Often it’s a small piece I found in an old shop or gallery somewhere that can spark a fabulous memory of the time and place I was when I bought that particular item. Collecting objects, because they appeal to you, is what can create a fabulous individual style and often the best arrangements are when contradictory items are brought together for example a fabulous abstract sculpture placed next to an old china hand-painted decorative vase. The best collections are curated with no real plan but happen serendipitously over the course of your life, often revealing a life well-lived."
