Designing Mindful Happiness: Mementos, Shelfies & Home Gallery Displays

curated design excellence

Memento's are familiar items which have usually been collected over the years and have a sentimental meaning and memory behind them. 

Often they can trigger a smile on your face and can provoke conversation from guests upon their viewing

Sometimes in design, an aesthetic can be created around such items, or you can factor them in.

Overall, they help to induce a feeling of calm and nostalgia of happy times. The joy this brings will in time create a naturally positive attitude and ambience.

Top tip: when presenting items, ensure they don't look 'overly cluttered' they should ensure balance within the overall space
