Decorating with Vignettes

Welcome to another week of Show and Tell Friday.....the "My Romantic Home" blog hosts this event every Friday and here are some decorating ideas, from my home, that I'd like to share with you this week..........

Don't you just love to decorate?   I've learned so much about decorating, by having a home decor shop.  I was fortunate to train with a frequent guest redesigner from HGTV's Design on a Dime show.  So I learned from the best!

Using what you already have in your home is so much more economical these days.  Sometimes using it in a non-traditional way can give it that punch you are looking for in your decor.  But my very favorite thing about decorating is grouping items together in vignettes.  Groups of 3's seem to work best.  But 5's, 7's, and 9's also work.  For some reason an odd number is the right combination of items.   It's easier for the eye to process. 

And incorporating the out-of-the-box ideas into your wall decor can really bring a room alive!


These are all photos from my home.  And they are the result of my decorating play-time!  Hope I have given you some great ideas and have inspired you to create some beautiful and unique vignettes in your home.  Sometimes the most unconventional can bring you the best result in decorating!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting..........
