Fancy Pants

Vignette. It might sound like a fancy decorating word, but it's really just a term for a collection of items in a space that all tell a story with your home decor.

You can show some love for your family's surname with a grouping of different shapes, colors, and textures of the first letter in the name.

Or try mixing prints of your favorite trips taken with your family, either representing the destinations themselves or, maybe, a group shot you recreate on all your vacations. For this client's family of 6, I added a big, bold numeral to the display.

If you want to create a quick and inexpensive vignette, try grouping family photographs into one spot. Placing the photos together makes more of an impact than if they are displayed randomly throughout a space. 

Vignettes allow you to tell little stories throughout your house about your family and the life you share together. Bonus, they also let you create some order in your spaces; instead of having items strewn all over your house, you can have like items pulled together in your displays. 

It's time to tell your story!
