Can we all say VIGNETTE together? Yes, this is one of the sweetest decor words in the dictionary. Vignettes add detail. Vignettes add sparkle and life. Vignette add so much interest and beauty to a room! Think of them as your personal decor stamp! And they are so easy to create!!!! It’s time to create a coffee table vignette that will transition from now until Thanksgiving! Really…and with very little change up involved! Transitional is another word I just love!!!! Going from one season to another. Let’s get started and create a BEAUTIFUL transitional vignette!
We are going to create a vignette that can last for months! Although we still have a bit of this summer season left it’s the perfect time to think forward to fall because it will be here before we know it! So how about an easy vignette with lots of decor value for right now and one that will work in the coming months too.

For our transitional vignette we are going to think big, beautiful elements that can work from season to season! I started with my very favorite crate that I use as a tray!
I found the big Cudahay Packing crate at a vintage barn market and knew it had to come home with me. I covered the unfinished bottom of the crate with a typewriter key burlap from JoAnne Fabrics. To see how to make an old crate into a chic covered tray click HERE.
Keeping it neutral was my goal! You can decide the best color for you to use now that will also transition well. My tip is to keep your colors “tight”. Keeping your colors to only two or three will help your vignette be more easy to transition.
I pulled a big urn from my hutch to fill with PeeGee hydrangeas! Oh, these are such pretty hydrangeas. They are just now blooming in my area so I’ll have blooms into fall!
This vase will work transitioning from one season to the next. In the fall it will be brimming with Autumn-stained leaves and textured branches! The white against the fall colors will make them stand out!
I used burlap covered books as risers in this vignette. It’s one of my best, go-to tips for adding height. It’s so easy to cover old books with burlap… and I’ve figured out a way that they are still readable! Click HERE for a burlap covered book DIY.
These books add texture now and will look fabulous in the upcoming months! Fall and burlap were made for each other!
Two rectangle glass containers hold corks… love the smooth glass and the texture of the cork! In the fall I’m thinking about filling them with acorns! Save those corks… they are quirky, free fillers!
Did you notice the S and G block letters. They are backwards because they are typeset letters! They play off the typewriter burlap crate bottom and will look warm and fun in the fall too!
There is just a ton of texture in this part of the vignette. The neutral color keeps it from being overwhelming!
Moving to the other side of the vignette…
I love love love this fun architectural orb. It is a dark oil-rubbed bronze. The orb is a big element that takes up lots of visual space without being heavy!!!
If you want to update your look, grab one of these! They are quite inexpensive and add a fun trendy element to a vignette. I got mine at Luckett’s Spring Market. I’ve seen them at West Elm too.
This orb looks great in my summer vignette, but it was made for the warmth of a fall vignette! Just wait!!!
On the burlap book risers in back of the orb are 2 DIY candlesticks with white candles. I found these awesome looking chippy pillar pieces from a home and knew they would make some fun, funky, chippy candlesticks! I fashioned the bowl part of the candlesticks and used some burlap in the design to tie it into the books.
The white candles mirror the white bases and give the candlesticks an airy look for late summer. For the coming months I am thinking of using birch covered candlesticks for an earthy fall look.
Next week I’ll show you how I made these fun candlesticks!
Transitional decorating is not about unloading the seasonal decor truck in our homes. It’s about adding subtle touches of the season to the decor we already have. It’s light handed decorating. So much easier and so much more attractive!
