The first week of every month, I ogle and drool at all the beautiful ‘7 Vignette’ pictures on Instagram. You know the ones, the artfully arranged flat lays of fruit & flowers, the chubby little children’s hands cupping a perfect cookie, or the light filled photo of curated & collected objects that tell a beautiful story. Here are some of the daily winners from February to give you a taste of what I’m talking about, click on the pic to take you to the IGers page.
‘7 Vignettes’ is the creation of Jen from The Interiors Addict. Starting on the first day of the month, and running for 7 days, with daily photo themes or words, you post a picture and use the hashtag #7vignettes. Here’s a list of this months themes –
I’ve always longed to join in, but didn’t think I had what it takes. This year, in the interest of ‘no regrets’ I am doing all those things that I never had the courage to do. I am proud of my efforts, and I wanted to share them with you.
I decided to go with a secondary theme of my bed and bedside table to make my 7 vignettes cohesive. This is definitely not necessary, but I felt it was easier to control the 1001 ideas racing through my head if I restricted myself to one concept.
It looks like I have an amazing array of fabulous linens in these pictures, but just between you and me – there are all kinds of things masquerading as linen and throw rugs in these pics, for example the ‘neutral’ pic has a cable knit poncho pretending to be a throw. I didn’t buy anything, but just foraged things from around the house. You don’t need lots of fabulous decor items, or a professional camera (all my pics were taken on my iPhone), or a background in styling (nope), just a little bit of thought and 10 minutes a day (ok, 20 if you need to change the bed back).
It was great fun, the #7vignettes community is friendly, supportive and encouraging. I encourage you all to have a go next month!
