Many of you may have come across this term ‘Vignette’ also pronounced as ‘Vin Yet’ ! in home decor magazines or heard it on HGTV ( which is where I first heard it .. on dear genevieve! a show I loved). A vignette for a graphic designer could be like vine/leaf-shaped design used to separate chapters in books or for photographers it could be loss in clarity towards the corners and sides of an image. For an interior designer it means to create a small scene that focuses on one moment and gives an insight on the character of a bigger scene. In simple words , vignettes are moments created for you to pause! Many stores create these for merchandising their products. For e.g. If you go to a store like pottery barn or williams sonoma , you will see beautiful table settings which will make you want to but everything.
We all have vignettes scattered in our houses . From a group of candles and a flower vase kept on the table top to the way you have arranged the mirror in your bathroom with rest of the goodies. These small moments help us to appreciate the beauty of the little things. We all have different collectibles in our houses right? things we have bought on our journeys abroad, gifts we have received, cute accents we have bought from etsy shops, mirrors, artwork, vintage chairs etc.. you get the point. But only when we put these things together in an artistic way is when we can really appreciate their beauty. The pictures below are some examples of vignettes I love.
Hope you guys were inspired to see these as I was. See more beautiful Vignettes on my pinterest page !
