vignette- a small picture. a short scene. a short description of an event. any decorative space set-up for the purpose of being pleasing to one's eye.
my mother is the queen of vignettes. you can literally spend hours looking at her decor.
decorating can often be super intimidating. large spaces are overwhelming. small spaces can get crowded easily. we've lived in seven homes. each one has been VERY different.
i thought i'd share some photos of things around my home that make me happy. nothing fancy. nothing expensive. just little things that make my house a home.
one of my favorite things about my house is all of the built-ins. we have two huge built in bookcases in our living room. they were SO intimidating when we first moved in..they stayed bare for a long time.then i started to look at them differently. i started to tackle them piece by piece, instead of as a whole.
i stacked books both horizontally and vertically,
and added flea market knick knacks here and there.
this pile cracks me up. can you tell which book isn't Jimmy's??
i tackled the huge built ins in our breakfast nook the same way...with collections/vignettes:
built in in the dining room...same thing.
and here are some random shots from around the house, things that i love most.
my favorite lamp (scored it at the thrift shop for a couple of bucks!!
the doors to the girls rooms:
sweet, girly touches in harper's room:
j's bar/man room:
our spring table decor:
the chalk wall in the basement:
and my craft room:
this is an old pew rack that i use to display layouts:
holy 9213840123840283 pictures! whoa. i think i got a little carried away.
but lots of you are always asking me what i do with alllll of those flea market finds i got in TX...so there you have it!
Hope you have a fabulous Tuesday!
