Hilary Robertson reveals a multitude of ways to style and display the stuff of life the flotsam and jetsam of possessions, from pictures and ornaments to hats and bicycles, that we accumulate over the course of time.


Hilary identifies and illustrates four different approaches to arrangements  intuitive, narrative, practical and curatorial and shows how each one can be achieved. Some people are magpies they love stuff; finding, collecting, and displaying it while their opposite, the minimalists, are on a mission to contain or tame it. The ideas in this book will appeal to magpies, minimalists and everyone in between.
