Per the norm, I’m switching things up around here. I like trying out different pieces in new areas of the house and whenever I buy a new toy I’m all about putting it front and center!

And now, it’s looking like so…
I’m not sure if you remember that I found this antique with a broken leg for around $40… refresh yo memory here. Luckily, I was able to remove the glue that was previously used and fix her up!! The dresser sticks out a little farther than I’d like, but I really love it and this is probably the only place I can put it. I changed nothing else, as you can tell, and didn’t even bother covering the light switch. Doh. Hey, maybe I’ll even plant something in that pot one of these days!
I’m not entirely good at vignettes, though. I just gather things that I like and hope for the best. I tweak here and there until it’s not hurting my eyeballs, and really just roll with the theory, “If I like looking at it, it’s working.”
Of course, there are people that make a pretty penny out of fabulous vignettes! Here are a few, in entryways, that caught my eye…
I prefer the collected, haphazard look to something so perfect that there’s no way people actually live there. You?
And right now I have my vintage Asian console for sale on Chairish. Check it out!
