It’s no secret that I love to create vignettes.
I will put a few things on a surface, sit down and stare at it for a bit, then get back up and rearrange it again until it is to my liking.
Sometimes I like to choose a theme. Above my theme is galvanized decor. I’ve added old vintage bottles, candles, and an old door knob.
Vignettes often include the elements that are behind them. In this case it is an old vintage thermometer. The background can be an integral part of vignettes.
House plants are fun to add to vignettes, plus they add a bit of nature to your space.
Decorating with house plants has always been popular, but has seen renewed popularity in the past few years.
In this kitchen vignette, my red microwave serves as a base. I’ve put a galvanized tray on top of it with a small lamp, kitchen utensils, and old cheese graters.
My old sewing machine tables are great surfaces for lamps, vignettes and house plants. I use them as end tables.
The chippy table lamp and wood and glass terrarium are paired with house plants and an antique mall “relative” in the gold frame.
I have had her in my family a long time. I find that antique mall relatives are often the best kind.
The sewing machine table on the right side of my couch has the larger wood and glass terrarium. I’ve been adding books inside of it lately, with plants and a small bird statue.
The smaller terrarium on the sewing machine table is on the other side of my couch. The terrariums are a vignette in and of themselves.
Vignettes are an important element of decorating. They add interest to surfaces and are a great way to display favorite and nostalgic objects that are of importance for you.
