Vignettes Here There & Everywhere

Vignettes...I have them all over my house! 

They are constantly moving and being recreated.

I have quite the collection of bowls, plates, trays, and baskets that I use over and over. 

The vignette on the top of my black chest was created by using matching lamps and a large brass bowl. I inserted faux grass bundles from HL to create a full arrangement.

And here is an alternate vignette I made for the black painted chest. 

This one is a tray vignette I make for the kitchen table back in the spring. I love to bring shades of green into the house d├ęcor all year long. 

Sometimes a table vignette can be as simple as a platter full of pretty fruit!

This is one of my favorite kitchen table vignettes. I began with a linen table runner...then began adding some of my favorite things. 

I mix and remix the ingredients into new vignettes from season to season and from bowl to bowl. 

I use lots of faux ingredients...that make colorful arrangements. Sometimes I use real fruit and flowers, but sometimes not. 

I approach the creation of my vignettes as if I were making a layout for a still life painting. I consider color, scale, and a triangular layout. It has to look just right to my eye...or I keep tinkering with it. 

An attractive vignette can be created with a few precious pieces or a casual mix of bowls and and filler. 

Mix and match according to what looks right to you. 

My vignettes change often...sometimes when I dust. I just get the idea to try something different.

And then again, sometimes I just have a single container filled with fluff and stuff. And that works too! 

I love to make centerpieces and table vignettes and wanted to share some that I have made. I am always tinkering around the house you know. :-)

Hello, I'm Sheila and my house is a giant art project! I enjoy creating an environment where my family can feel safe, secure, and loved. We are empty nesters learning to slow down and enjoy life.


  1. You have such a talent making things so pretty....I don't really do vignettes...I don't even know where that word came from...I just put things on table tops and etc that look pleasing to me...
