Simple Summer Vignette Ideas for your home.

One of the first things that I like to do when a new season approaches, is change just a few things in my home decor. Here are simple summer vignette ideas for your home.

First Things First – what is a vignette?

A vignette is a small, pleasing picture formed by grouping several objects.

Several years ago I attended a design class while living in North Carolina. In that class we learned about vignettes and groupings. We were taught that for a successful vignette you needed a flat object, a shiny object, a colorful object, texture and varying heights. Also, the vignette should have an odd number of items. Remember, this is just a general rule. Your vignettes should represent you and your style.

By the way, my bestie, Bambi, created these painted beads for my birthday!

Last year I crafted these decoupaged oyster shells. They will be perfect in vignettes.

Framed printables add instant color and interest. You can even frame a pretty card or a piece of scrapbook paper.

Simple Summer Vignette Ideas:

  • Shape: Vary the height of objects.
  • Color combinations: If objects are all the same color, vary the shapes and heights.
  • Vintage: A grouping of objects from your favorite vintage period can be charming. Cameras, candlesticks, globes.
  • Theme: Beach themes, nature themes, vacation, sports, movies, and more.
  • Textures: Group objects of the same or textures. Baskets. Pottery. Shells.
  • Collections: Watch your scale and size. If you have too many small objects – it looks cluttered.
