Vignettes are my favorite, favorite part of decorating. I am in love with these little settings of seemingly random objects that, when put together, tell a story. Or tell us about someone. Or create a mood. They look like the decorator just set the items down, but, in fact, they usually are created using great thought towards leading the eye around the scene...In wonderful Vignettes, there is much to see, but there is not clutter. There often is a general shape to the entire scene (often triangular), but it is not immediately obvious. Here are a few that caught my eye in my stash of clippings...
This entire room is a vignette, but especially that desk!!!
If you want to see some amazing, real-life vignettes, head over to Daisy Cottage . Wow, Kim is just a naturally talented decorator. She is a constant source of inspiration.
Isn't it exciting to have the weekend come so soon after having a day off? I'm loving it! Its like having two Fridays in a work week! We are going to a concert at Wolf Trap tomorrow evening. Wolf Trap is one of the gifts that comes with living in the Washington DC area. It is the only National Park that is devoted to the Performing Arts. All summer, for a reasonable price, you can take your picnic to their lawn & lie under the stars, listening to music. Its truly wonderful.
On Saturday, we are getting up early for a quick trip to PA for a family gathering at my parent's place. Most of the family hasn't seen Hope since Christmas (so they haven't seen her walk), so this will be a good time. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
