Styling Vignettes 101
I’ve been collecting photos of vignettes for a while now in a Pinterest board. And very often I find myself scrolling through the images, trying to uncover all their styling secrets.
There really is an art to styling beautiful vignettes but above all, following and trusting your eye is the most important. If you only use items you love, and you add and remove them until you’re completely satisfied, you’ll end up with a beautiful vignette.
However, if you’re feeling unsure about the whole thing, here are a few tips to help you along the way.
Do stack books and trinkets on top of books. Stacked books seem to be the most popular item in vignette styling but that’s because it really does work. Books anchor the space.
Think of how you use the surface. Are you styling a hallway console, a desk or a bookcase? Think of what might end up there and include it in your vignette. Add items that look like they belong.
Play with different heights. There is nothing worse than a vignette where all items are the same height. Use lamps, plants, frames to give you vignette depth and height.
You can never have enough trays. This may be the hoarder in me speaking but trays will make any collection of items seem organized.
Always add a living thing. Whether it’s fresh cut flowers, topiaries or succulents, plants will always give your vignette a more organic look.
Art is non-negotiable. Art will make any vignette look much better. Whether it’s a gallery wall or one single frame, always add art.
