Have you ever heard someone mention the term “decorative vignette” and wondered what on earth it meant? Well, now you have to wonder no longer – we will define vignette for you! Here is the latest addition to our Decorating Dictionary

“When you hear the word “vignette,” you may think of a short scene in a play or a quick character sketch. A design vignette isn’t too different from its theatrical and literary counterparts… it too tells a story.” ~ 

Vignette: In decorating, a vignette or tablescape is a grouping or collection of bits and pieces purposefully arranged for display. A vignette uses a variety of heights, textures, colours and shapes to create depth and is usually tied together by a common theme. These table collections add interest and create a focal point to your space. (Defined with a little help from eHow)
