5 interiors that are a toy-collectors dream
In the twenty first century, toy collecting is not just for kids. It has become an art of sorts – auctioning the best, collectors-edition toys on the market while hardcore collectors bid on them to enhance their collection. Now for those who have managed to accrue quite a few masterpieces for their collection, it is hard to store them in just a small nook and cranny of their homes. Most collectors want their toys to be on display – spread within their everyday routine so that they can admire their collection whenever they want to. Toy collection is an art and incorporating these artifacts within interior spaces can be a challenging task. Today, we will be looking at some of the most artfully integrated toy collection display ideas in our gallery.
- Double-edged display
Since semi-transparent studies within living rooms have been a recurring interior trend in the market, the designers have used the transparency to their advantage. The shelving space in the study has been used to display some of the finest of the clients’ toy collection – soft spotlight and all – which can be seen by anyone who walks past the living room too. This double visual whammy is a genius way to integrate all parts of the interior while showcasing the collection itself.
- All of it
This living room has been designed around the toy collection itself. Almost all shelves are brimming with the best of collectors-edition toys, which have become a feature decoration element of the interior itself. The colorful display of the toys has been countered by designing the rest of the interior in dark, solemn tones and wooden textures, which highlight the fun, interesting textures of the toy collection in the shelving. It is a clever way to showcase the collection without seemingly going too much overboard.
- Within the bedroom
The bedroom has been designed in a fun, yet sophisticated way. The toys are not the focal point here, because the bedroom is a relaxing zone within the house. Too much visual clutter would disintegrate that ambient downtime zone. So the designers have compromised by displaying only a small part of the collection on the side shelf of the bedroom while making the bed itself the focal point.
If large-scale is not your kind of aesthetic then no worries – there are always ways to showcase the toys in a small, restrained way. The narrow, elongated shelf is quite the fashionable commodity these days – especially in living rooms – and showcasing your toys in that would be a good yet restrained way to emulate the best of your collection.
While the Mickey Mouse theme may seem overboard for some, the interior below shows that it can be done tastefully in an elegant and sophisticated way. The shelf is custom made and does not garishly stand out even with the toy collection on full display within.
