I’m excited to announce Interiors Addict’s latest Instagram challenge: 7 Vignettes in 7 Days!
You can probably guess what this one’s all about, but I’ll spell it out anyway. Each day, from this Saturday, you must snap a vignette inspired by the corresponding word on the list. It’s a bit more interactive than usual because I’m guessing not many people have 7 vignettes in their home or, if they do, they probably don’t fit my list exactly! So it’s time to have some fun and be creative, play stylist, and maybe create some new and lovely focal points in your home!
Not everyone knows what this French word actually means, so I asked super stylist Kara Rosenlund, a veritable queen of the vignette (seriously, she makes it look so easy!), to explain. “A vignette to me is essentially a unique visual short story,” she said. “It’s told through using an arrangement of smaller objects gathered together to tell a tale that is only yours. It can be as simple or as grand as you like; a pile of seashells in different sizes gathered from a distant seaside trip laid out on a shelf, to a Metro ticket, a small plastic tacky Eiffel Tower and a Champagne cork from Paris treasured as souvenirs on a mantle.”
I couldn’t think of anyone better to judge the winner of this competition, which, as always, is just for fun, than Kara.
- Post a photo every day for 7 days (if you miss a day, just catch up later, so long as you’ve done all 7 by the last day of the challenge
- Use the hashtag #7vignettes
- Tag me (jenbishop_interiorsaddict) and Kara (kararosenlund).
Feel free to screenshot the list and share it with your Instagram followers. I can’t wait to have a nosy at everyone’s vignettes! Good luck and, most importantly, have fun!
This challenge may or may not a) cheer up your post-holiday blues and b) give you something other than Facebook to look at during those painfully slow first days back at work.
Im new to Instagram but loving it already – love a little challenge! Looking forward to this!
Fantastic idea Jen:)

Oh what a lovely blog you have here! I’ve just found you via instagram and have posted my first vignette for the week. So excited to be a part of this. There’s nothing better than a little vignette styling and a cup of tea:) Can’t wait to make my way around your lovely blog a bit more.
Oh thank you Kim! Glad you’re enjoying #7vignettes and that it brought you here for the first time! Jen x
