Arranging a Stylish Tabletop Vignette

Flipping through magazines, reading design blogs and spending time on Pinterest, you’ve probably come across some beautiful pictures of interior spaces that feature stylized tabletop vignettes. There’s no reason you can’t create a beautiful display for your own home.

In her blog,  Colour me Happy ,  Maria Killam has some wonderful examples of beautifully executed vignettes along with some helpful tips on creating an aesthetically pleasing vignette.

Notice the use of books and a mirror in this vignette from Maria Keller

In her post, Maria explains that;

“A tablescape or vignette should include a minimum of 3 items; flowers, candles, and books, and depending on where it is, a tray.”

When you take a look at Maria’s vignettes you will also notice how she uses color coordinated books to add height to certain objects and to create horizontal lines.

Coffee tables, sideboards and mantles are great places to arrange vignettes and one of the things to pay attention to is keeping if simple and not too cluttered.

There should be one item that grounds the grouping and the colors and textures should balance with other pieces of furniture or fabrics in the room.  At Home on the Range we love to use picture frames with family photos, interesting candle holders with candles that pull colors out of the room, sculptural items and vases in our vignettes.

If you’re searching for accessories for your vignettes, stop by the Home on the Range showroom on Loggers Lane or contact us to have us send you anything you see and like.  Here are some fun ideas we have come across recently.

picture frames are great additions to vignettes - add your own family photos for a more personal touch



I love finding fun "conversation pieces" to put in vignettes like these vintage airplanes



These antique French glass bottles will add a great touch to a vignette once they are cleaned up!


Candle holders work well on a mantle
