I had no clue what it meant or even how to pronounce it!
or even a few spots in your living room.
Now that we have defined a vignette, let’s talking about creating one.
end tables and mantels also make great places for a creative fall vignette.
Keep a simple color scheme with only two or three varying colors.
Having items with different heights is important as well.
Some great examples of tall items might be stylish lamps,
candlesticks, picture frames or even a vase full of flowers or leaf branches.
I chose a large vase full of fall bittersweet for my item of height.
I love the pop of color and body the bittersweet adds to my arrangement!
Now that you have your supplies, you need to decide on a focal piece.
Your favorite mirror, a piece of art or picture can make a great anchor.
In my vignette, I used a mirror I made a few years ago.
I personally like everything to be symmetrical.
I have experimented with asymmetrical and before you know it,
I’ve arranged them all back to being even! I just can’t help myself. 🙂
But even with keeping symmetry in mind,
I tend to group my accessories in items of three or five.
The reason for this is that they tend to be more visually pleasing.
(At least to my eye!)
But follow your instincts and go with what looks right to you.
Now it’s time to layer your items starting from back to front,
saving smaller items for last.
For some added texture I used baskets and a soft blanket.
Now it’s time to step back from your vignette and edit.
I may rearrange a few accessories or even remove an item.
Elegant vignettes do not need lots of accessories.
A simpler arrangement will seem cleaner and most times, even look better.
Here’s another example of a different vignette in my home….
my Autumn shelves.
You can see how I put together this arrangement HERE.
