This Is What Your Home Is Missing (and How to Fix It)

Sacha Strebe

What does it take to create a personality-packed space with visual intrigue? While the layout is key and a styled entryway is essential (one that's also clutter-free), the best way to make a room interesting is to design artistic compositions that speak to your passions, travels, obsessions, and heritage. These curated moments are also known as vignettes.  

When styled well, they make a room compelling and alluring to both the homeowner and its visitors. So what does it take to make a successful vignette? A mix of textures, materials, and styles is essential along with original art and collected objects from your life's journey. Whether you're styling a coffee table, credenza, or hallway bench, we take you through each piece and the must-have objects you need to achieve a stylish composition.

The coffee table is often referred to as the statement shoe of the room, and with good reason. It has a practical and pretty purpose. Guests can use the space as a rest stop for their beverages and snacks, but it's also the first point of reference for your personal taste, likes, and interests. So only display the books, candles, and objets d'art that really speak to you and communicate who you are in the glance of an eye. Feel free to rotate your book selection seasonally or even weekly, and add a hint of greenery, preferably something hardy.
