I heart tiny art

bed-side vignette, bedroom vignette, fabric headboard, nightstand styling

Before we shot our look book, I searched around for visual inspiration and pinned a whole bunch of pretty vignettes. Now that our look book shoot is over, I went back to look at these images once again and noticed that a very large percentage of them contain some sort of small scale art work, either propped up in the vignette or on a tiny easel.  Clearly, I have a thing for mini-paintings…maybe it’s a cry from my subconscious desire to start painting again this summer~”why not just start small”?  Do you ever notice a pattern in the things that you’re drawn to?

  3. I love tiny art as well….because it makes you look twice and study it further….you end up focusing more on a small piece than on a large one in my opinion. Beautiful round-up!

  5. Beautiful works of art and artful accessories in these lovely vignettes, Sue!
    Very special, it is like when people see the Mona Lisa at the Louvre and are surprised at the small size!

  8. Love all of these!! Usually I'm drawn to really large scale art for walls, but I love the idea of decorating on tables with tiny art, especially in ornate frames!
