Vignette n. A deliberate collection of objects, typically similar in theme, which evoke the senses, make an impact, visually stimulate and cause others to squeal, “Holy cow, that looks fantastic!” (Okay, so I have no idea what the technical definition of vignette is in the design world, but I like my definition so I’m stickin’ with it!)
I thought you all might be a tad tired of looking at my dining room and mantel, so I thought I would move us into the bedroom. Ooh-la-la! I am in the middle of painting and redecorating everything in there, but that didn’t stop me from setting up a bunch of pretties on my freshly painted barely blue wall! (I am loving the color by the way; Benjamin Moore’s In Your Eyes in case you are wondering.) I also know it is a tad early for shell-themed vignettes in some of your books, but in my world it is never too early for shells! Besides, we’ll be having plenty of Easter eye candy to look at today.
My inspiration for today’s vignette started with the book Gift from the Sea which I am currently reading.
It was already sitting on my nightstand so it set the perfect stage for me to build around. The lamp and cake stand were recent purchases from the Christmas Tree Shop and everything else was snatched up from various parts of the house. The fabric in the basket is waiting to be sewn into curtains.
Having just painted, I had a bunch of frames lying around on the floor. I just popped the glass out of this one and grabbed a sea star that had been hanging in my bathroom and looped it through the top. I love the look!
For those who have been following me since Christmas, you’ll remember seeing these ornaments hanging from white stockings in my master bathroom. They look so cute in my nest.
The piece of driftwood and coral shell was found on the beach the day my dad passed away. I love all of my gifts from the sea.
