STYLE YOUR COFFEE TABLE LIKE A PRO - THE ELEMENTS OF A VIGNETTE
A vignette is a compilation of decorative pieces, that together, form a cohesive display.
Vignettes add interest and complete your space. In this blog we are going to break down the elements of the coffee table vignette we staged in the Bluewater Health Foundation 2022/2023 Dream Home.
Every Vignette needs a solid base to anchor and ground the display.
We used our Ash-wood Wicker Tray as our base. It was a great tray for our space because it is nice and large so, it won't look small on our large ottoman. Its woven texture also adds interest and its golden colour adds warmth.
If you have read our other blogs, you will know how often we emphasize the importance of high, medium and low when styling a composition. For height, we used our Ida Vase and then added even more height by placing eucalyptus greenery inside. The greenery also helps bring some colour and life to the design.
Another item that is great to help both ground and give some added height to shorter items are books. We love stacking books and using them to anchor other items. So, pick your favourite coffee table books and get styling!
Layering is an important part of styling a vignette. In this set up, we layered our Terracotta Beads on top of our stack of two coffee table books. We also placed our LJ Design Co. Candle in the scent Amber Driftwood. Adding a candle adds ambiance and warmth.
Because the tray is so large we also added a vintage water canister as an additional decorative piece to help fill the composition.
Now it's time to sit back and enjoy your balanced and thoughtful coffee table vignette. We hope you found this helpful. Feel free to tag us @lj_designco in your own projects and use the hashtag #LoveMyLJ !
