10 Ideas For Creating a Beautiful Vignette

by Rebekah Carey

Sometimes I feel like “vignette” can feel a little unapproachable, but it’s not. As a stylist it’s how I make scenes feel more realistic, warmer, more “lived-in,” and like they have a history. But, fear not, you do not have to be a professional stylist to create your own beautiful vignettes at home. Whether you’ve got a collection you want inspiration for displaying (or several), or just want your bathroom to be more of a place of respite, we’re going to show you some lovely¬†examples of vignettes and how you can create your own at home — in an authentic and useful way that fits your lifestyle. —
