Are you confused or scared of vignettes?
Or better yet, are you wondering: “what on earth IS a vignette?”
Never fear – I am here to de-myth the glorious vignette that is ever so simple and effective when styled well!
A vignette is just a story of styling elements on a side, dining or coffee table.
Here’s 7 tips to get you started:
Tip 1: Find the light
Always style your vignette around a light source.
Otherwise no one will see it!
Tip 2: Be guided by your style
Let the items chosen for your vignette be guided by style of your room and home.
For example, if you have a traditional style, use even numbers.
If it’s a more relaxed vibe – mix it up with odd numbers.
Tip 3: Get colourful
Use pops of colour that you love or work with seasonal trends, you can change it up as your taste changes.
Tip 4: Style in odd numbers
If you don’t have a traditional styled home, I always recommend creating vignettes in 3, 5 or 7’s for big spaces!
Tip 5: Tall and short
Vary the height of the items used in your vignette.
You can use a pedestal or stack of books to bring them up to height if needed.
Tip 6: Create depth
Vary the depth of your vignette to create interest – there should be no straight lines!
Tip 7: Texture, texture, texture!
Incorporate different textures into your vignette.
Mix it up with natural materials, metallics, gold, glass and matte.
There you have it! Everything you need to no longer be scared or confused by vignettes – enjoy!
