A Guide to Displaying your Stuff!Book - 2012
Whatever your taste, it's about celebrating the beautiful, the eccentric, the simple. In a world where trends and styles are dictated to us, Sarah Bagner, better known as Supermarket Sarah, encourages readers to believe in their own styles and ideas. Here Sarah travels the globe, visiting cosmopolitan locations in Tokyo, London, and Stockholm, offering up inspiration and variety as she illustrates novel ways in which people use their own walls to display themselves and their "treasures." She visits the homes and studios of designers and collectors, viewing the displays of minimalists and hoarders. The walls range from the quirky to the romantic, from vintage to brand new. Whatever is displayed, and however it is displayed, everything has a meaning for its owner. From collections of supermarket receipts, records and toys, to chandeliers and antlers, whatever it may be, Sarah loves a story. Items only have the value that you put on them and Wonder Walls explores the ideas and thoughts behind people's objects and why these objects, when adorning a wall, help us discover ourselves. The walls featured here are all revealing, amusing, and thought-provoking, and will inspire you to look at your own collections with a fresh eye.
