Creating Vignettes in your home

Vignette –  A small, pleasing picture or view.

Designers use every corner, shelf or surface as an opportunity to create a “pleasing view” but it’s not a technique reserved only for designers. Look around your home to find interesting paraphernalia that you already own, and experiment with different arrangements until you find a balance that is pleasing to your eye.

Grouping objects under glass cloches adds an extra layer of interest.
