The festive season is approaching and we might be pondering what’s hot and what’s not for our Christmas decoration. On the way to December through gloomy and wet November I like to draw inspiration from the surrounding nature. Rainy mountains, deep green forests, grey skies – these elements are a fantastic seasonal basis and when spiced up with a dash of glam – hello seasonal decor!
A great and simple way to play along and find your decor scheme is to create a little vignette. For my vignette I used a few things found at home and sourced at Bolia: a vintage forest painting, a scented candle with the smell of the forest, a glass dome and a few wooden trees, a shiny vase and a marble tray – all these elements capture that festive and nature inspired decor vibe.
If you feel challenged, here are a few easy tips for a vignette at home: Find a colour theme and play along with various hues from the same colour family. Add one unexpected element in colour and/or shape to highlight the vignette. And also think of various textures and a 2D/3D effect. Notice the trees on my vintage painting and the little wooden trees on the marble tray? That’s what I mean! And now it’s your turn!
