I feel like I am always telling y’all about vignettes…I just love them! Just in case you’re not entirely clear what a vignette is despite my continuous rambling about them, here’s the definition from dictionary.com: A vignette is “any small pleasing picture or view.” That’s definitely how I feel about vignettes!
I think vignettes can capture an individual’s personality simply by displaying small treasures or trinkets that have a common theme. For example, I love vintage perfume bottles, so I have a collection of them on my dressing table. I don’t use them, but their unique shapes and beautiful colors remind me of an Old Hollywood boudoir.
If you love the ocean, you could display a small collection of driftwood, seashells, and coral on your bookshelf, armoire, or entryway table. Love books about architecture? Stack them in small, low piles on a table in your foyer. The key to making sure a vignette looks classic as opposed to clutter is making sure that all of your pieces have something in common (i.e. they look similar to each other or have the same theme). The vignettes are simple yet make a beautiful statement.
