May I suggest you repost and spell all your words out? By the time I get the words translated I forget what you're asking.

Black on the outside/backs of shelves a lighter color so your things show up better.

I would make it a collection of one type of thing. This will simplify and make a more distinct statement.

Possible a wood rod and really nice curtains with colors to bring out the colors of the walls and a crystal collection in shadow box or collection in red.

manvisudan, you say you are from India? I have a suggestion. Go to Bing Translator. You can type in your questions to us in your native language and it instantly translates into English. You cut and paste here, and we will get a better understanding of your dilemma. If you like, I will be happy to reciprocate and do the same.

It seems like collections look good if they are similar in some way....such as color. If all your items were dark/black...it would look good..and if the background were white/light, the items will show up better.

Hi manvisudan,

I think what you said of keeping everything black-brown is a great Idea and then just for a special focal point put the green/jade items ( a couple) together or a couple white/cream - light items.

Sure...use your dark color and like Mary Poulos said...add in a few pieces of green/jade..that would look good!!

Not sure if it would go with the Buddah theme...I would do mostly the same colored items..and then maybe one or two in the center...a different color

If we completely keep the Buddha theme aside..will these types look good?I can buy same type of figures in different postures to give a same collection feel.

That looks like natural wood so i wouldn't ever paint it, I would try to match the wood color and use a more substantial wood drapery rod next to it and remove the clock above it. Light jade pieces would be good and shiny too. Something inexpensive would be all green or white/cream Haeger (maybe spelled wrong) ceramic rectangular "planters" usually about 3 inches tall, 2 or three inches deep and 6 or so wide and other shapes also like small vases are easy to find. I think they are from the 40's or 50's so they would match the built-in style. You can pick them up at thrift stores for about five dollars and they have nice shapes. I agree with the other comments that a strong theme rather than random objects are key.
