Vignette






I rather like a pretty vignette. I think the key is to keep it personal. Use what you love and things that have meaning. No one wants to live in a showroom.

Oh I am so in the zone now...currently working on my own..and I keep rearranging it..lol..but its fun ..great images x

Cassie said...

I totally agree about the things being personal. I look at some homes in magazines and they look so styled and as you said 'showroom' like.

You chose some stunning arrangements.

Hope you are enjoying a great weekend.

I love to arrange and rearrange my own right here in my home, (I am such a "putterer" that way) these are great inspiration!

Blushing! xoxo

Vanessa said...

Very inspirational images. There's a lot going on in each of them but they still look "undecorated" in a good way.

Melissa said...

I'm inspired to zip back to the thrift store for a mirror EXACTLY like the one in the second vingette. Wish I could thrift those lamps!

Whenever I try and use books/magazines in a vingette it looks like someone forgot to put them away. How do I get them to look this great???
Love all the pictures.

Simply, but beautifully, put! Me too, by the way!

That 3rd look is great!

Splendid Willow said...

I am so with you girl - show rooms are stiff and not very personal!

Love, love, love the images you picked. My favorite is probably the last one - with the b/w photos together with the empire chest. I have always liked contrasts.

Happy Monday!

Cyber hug, Mon
