Getting back to my design book library series this week ~ some of you may know these next books by the name “Nell Hill”. These books are a favorite of mine and they are definitely my “go to” vignette idea books. I probably pull these three books off my shelves more than any of the others. The three I have are Christmas at Home, Style at Home, and Feather Your Nest.
The Christmas one is the least favorite of the three only because I expected more from a Christmas decorating book. If I had to recommend any of these three it would be Style at Home or Feather Your Nest. This would be a super long post if I tried to show you an equal amount of pictures from each book, so I’m just going to give you a random sampling.
One of the things I really like is that she will show you an area, whether it is a wall or a tabletop decorated three different ways. Note the picture above and then below the three ways she has decorated the wall (showing one side) as well as the table top.
Here is another table top that has gotten made over three different ways, with the lamp staying the same.
The pictures share vignettes throughout a home, from the kitchen
(Notice how this little terrarium holds silver pieces above and china cups below. Simple changes that give this terrarium a different look.)
through the dining room
to the living room.
Even the laundry room!
And all the rooms in between!
And I think you can guess these are from the Christmas book.
Lots of great ideas and inspiration from these books. Many of these little touches and vignettes you could put together with items you already own or for very little money.
