May Seven Vignettes..

The fabulous community that is Seven Vignettes, never ceases to amaze me each month.  For seven days, wonderfully talented and inspiring stylists, designers, artists, decorators and all myriad of creative types whip up an incredible feast for the eyes, all in a little square Instagram image.  I just love joining in the vignette fun, meeting such lovely clever folks and learning so much along the way.  This month I challenged myself to simplifying my ideas and think more creatively about the themes.  Here are my May vignettes.. 

 Day 1 - Hanging. Inspired by two of my favourite collections, journals and feathers.

Day 2 - Labels. Inspired by vintage Twinings typography and the art of tea.  

 Day 3 - Timber. Inspired by favourite timber vintage ephemera box. 

Day 4 - Colour. Inspired by childhood memories and rainbow splendour.  

 Day 5 - Porcelain/Ceramic. Inspired by vintage finds and treasured memories.  

Day 6 - Dining. Inspired by heirloom treasures and morning pleasures. 

Day 7 - Travel. Inspired by New York adventures. 

This month I really enjoyed working from a top down angle, using the same wrapping paper from The Dharma Door, for each vignette background.  It was such a great learning experience,  seeing every from a new perspective and the continity really helped me to focus on the beauty of simple, everyday objects. 

Most favourite day.. I'd never really styled food before so I found 'labels' and 'dining' a super fun experience. Most challeging day.. Most certainly 'hanging', as I have no usable walls to hang things from, this was a great think outside the box moment. Thanks as always to the amazing Jen from The Interiors Addict for creating this wonderful challenge each month which has now become a truly inspiring network of fabulous creativity.  

Much Love
