A Home To Keep: DIY! Tell Your Story Through Vignettes
One of the easiest ways to decorate your home for any season is to arrange objects in a vignette. A vignette is a small grouping of objects that creates a focal point and “tells a story”. They bring warmth and life to any space.
“Come in and stay awhile this is indeed a welcoming place."
How to Build Your Story:
vary heights of objects
use different textures
display in "odd numbers"
Group on top of any flat surface: an entry table, bookshelf, countertop or chair.
using words, open books, treasured letters invites others to be a part of your story
photos and personal items add warmth
stacking items add interest
vintage suitcases are fun to use
pillows & throws add a pop of color
small drawer on casters
vintage suitcase or lunchbox
table top easel
Before you even open the front door of your home, you can create a vignette that says, “Come in and stay awhile this is indeed a welcoming place." Here's some great ways to say "hello" to your family, friends and neighbors:
a welcoming bench
chalkboard with a cheery greeting
front door wreath & welcoming mat
