Vignettes!

Clients always ask me to help make their stuff look pretty and I am always happy to help.

There is an art to the vignette, but it is a very simple formula and I am willing to share some of my 3 favorite inside tips...

Tip #1.
Layers and Layers and Layers Oh my!!!
If you have lots to display { and in my case I do} then the key to making it all work together is to layer. It's OK to stack frames or objects on top of a stack of books.  It adds height and depth to the area without it feeling cluttered.

Tip #2:
 Less is More and More is More
If you choose to have a simple vignette....then keep it simple and do go overboard with chotskies. Lean frames against the wall and organize trinkets in baskets to draw eye to the art and larger items in vignette. This whole area would have completely cluttered up if there were candles of various other crap stacked all over the place....agreed?

Tip #3: 
Pick a color or various complementing colors and run with it.
It will create a flow to the area and draw your eye to move and look at everything in the space. This rule also applies to objects color tones. In the first photo all the colors used are naturals, like the sandy pinks and gold hues with the black ground.

In both of these photos the color green or blue was used to to create a color story within the vignette. They used similar colors and changed up the objects shapes and sizes!

Tip #4: 
Add some plant life to the situation.
Shrubs and flowers go a long way. They add an organic height and shape to your vignette and always pop with color be it green from foliage or pink from peonies!
