Workspace of the Week: Honoring Mementos

This week’s Workspace of the Week is fun9us’s fun work room:

This workspace is a great example of how to honor one’s mementos. fun9us features his collection of Japanese toys as the focal point for a fun and inspiring workspace. The collection is well organized, contained, and creates an inspiring work environment.

    When working with my organizing clients, I always try to remind them they will not reminisce with their mementos in the garage or attic. If they truly love and cherish something and it represents who they are, then it should be valued and displayed. This is a great example of honoring mementos. Thank you for sharing!

    This is a great example of the fact that you can collect and display anything and, if done right, have it look great.

    What I want to know is: Where did they find those wonderful display cases?

    Now that is a true collector honoring the collection in a beautiful way.
    In my 1950’s kitchen, complete with the sunshine yellow cabinets, I have super surfaces to display my 100’s of refrigerator magnets. No rhyme or reason to how I have them displayed, but they are so much fun to look at and remember places I have been, or others have been and brought me back a momento!!

    What I like is that whilst honouring their collection the space is separated so that you have the workspace with minimal distraction but uses the surrounding space to display in a non messy way. I also like those display cabinets, simple but purposeful.
