And No, it’s not something you put on salad… A vignette is just a fancy term for what I like to call a “Moment”. I’m sure that really clears things up! As I walk through a client’s house I’m always quick to say “I love this moment you’ve created here” as I wave my hand over some table or mantle or chair. They typically look very confused. I assure them it’s a compliment.
A vignette is a variety of items placed together to create a focal point or an area of visual interest. The items are different in nature and size and scale and texture and purpose. But when put together in a grouping they compliment each other to create an interesting visual moment. There’s that word again…

At Interiors By Design, Inc. we like to usher in the new spring season with a Fresh Face for your Space. How many of you (who wear make-up) have a new lipstick color for the spring? Doesn’t your wardrobe typically brighten up a bit at this time of year? We say let’s make a few modifications to our interiors to reflect this new spring season, too!
A few touches are all you need to help transform your rooms into the new season. What comes to mind when you think spring? We think of birds singing, creeks flowing, flowers blooming, grass greening and the sun shining. Let these and other similar elements become your inspiration. You can easily incorporate hints of spring into any design.
Consider infusing robin-egg blue accents into your space via accent pillows, accessories or towels. Try changing out a few key art pieces and replace them with spring themes of flowers or the pastels of most impressionist artwork. Find placemats with birds, flowers or fresh colors. These subtle modifications in your home décor will have a huge impact in the feel of your space.
As your environment shifts don’t be surprised if your mood, perspective, and even productivity improve. Spring is a great time to gather energy from your surroundings and with a few tweaks you will be able to do that right in your own home. Be inspired and put a Fresh Face on your Space!
