Visual Interest - vignette and still life around the home

Creating vignettes and accessorizing is probably the most fun you can have decorating. The possibilities are many, and if you use found object and things you already have, free!





What's your go to object when you decorate a surface?

You're absolutely right - creating vignettes and accessorizing is definitely the most fun you can have decorating!

My favorite decorative objects are things from nature - seashells, coral, sea sponges, minerals, fossils, antlers/horns, feathers, pinecones, etc. But I also love to display paintings, urns, small sculptures and pretty, everyday objects like a magnifying glass or attractive bottle.

I love putting my treasures under domes or on top of small stacks of books. There's hardly a table, shelf or mantle in the house that doesn't have something displayed on it!

It makes me think of this Yoko Ogawa's story called "L'annulaire" in French (I don't know its English title). Really beautiful.

I like to use items from nature (shells, pine cones, feathers, etc.) and mix them with vintage pieces (tea cups, old books, match holders, compacts, marbles, etc.)

I love using items from childhood: old toys, ceramic art projects, framed school work, etc.

Very lovely ideas for home decors. Making vignettes on your own is truly a fun thing to do. I made one with my sister just a few weeks ago.
