Vignettes ? What the heck is that?
I didn’t have any idea how vignettes applied to decorating a home. Come to find out, vignettes are all over my home and yours!
So basically vignettes are a grouping of all your decorative accessories, aka, knick knacks or stuff that you have sitting around your home that you have strategically placed together to create an interesting look. Yes a vignette. That is what those little “displayed groupings” in our home are called! This makes me happy because I had no idea that’s what they were called!
Vignettes are created all around our homes and can be found on bookcases, tables, sideboards, shelves, dressers, etc. Pretty much any home decor accessory can be used. This includes mirrors, framed art, lamps, planted pots, candles, knick knacks, or anything that you have that is memorable or tells a story. You can vary home decor items in size, using stacked books to create height and use with a grouping of odd numbers such as 3 or 5 for visual interest. Group home decor items by theme or color. Vignettes are what gives a decorated room that finished, polished look.
Southern hospitality created a beautiful bright and festive Christmas vignette for her kitchen.
The colors are coordinated and the christmas tree adds the height which gives viusal interest to this grouping.
Notesongs made this cute kitchen Christmas vignette using the corner of the kitchen countertop.
Cookbooks were used as a lift to give the bowl of pinecones some additional height. Notice how the cookbooks are not straight and even! These uneven stacked cookbooks adds interest to this vignette.
Dear Lillie shows us just how to make a simple but festive vignette using a chalkboard, fresh greenery, and a small christmas wreath. Think how simple this would be to recreate and decorate for each season!
In this dining room, Thrifty Decor Chic shares her Christmas vignette using lamps, many apothecary jars and other Christmas decor to create this dazzling showpiece!
Even I had decorated some pretty stunning Christmas vignettes that I shared in have yourself a merry rustic christmas.
Did you know what vignettes are or am I the only one who didn’t know?
