    Create a vignette. If your treasured preloved item is a simple ornament or bowl, you can still make it a crowd-pleaser by creating a showstopping vignette around it. Group together similarly colored items that will accentuate your piece and add a couple of taller objects, such as a lamp and an artwork, that will grab the attention. The more items you group, the bigger the effect, so go for it!

    3. Use vignettes to add visual interest. Carefully arranged groupings add interest to any surface, be it a kitchen window ledge, a mantelpiece, a sideboard or even the top of a bathroom cabinet. Not one to take composition lightly, Chalmers suggests putting a lot of thought into item groupings. Rather than trying to put everything you love on display, choose a display corner and carefully edit various selections to decorate your home. Chalmers is exuberant over this homeowner's sideboard collection. "Notice the different heights of the objects and the color splash in turquoise. The lamp is lovely and tall and has a great texture. Also, note here the addition of a dainty holly berry brooch to the lampshade, which gives a quirky finishing touch; it's so simple but very effective," she says.

    This lamp is so hideous that it's gorgeous in a sculptural kind of way. The painting is an exquisite foil to the lamp, and the scattered miscellaneous objects are content to be upstaged by the two prima donnas of the vignette.

    Love the turquoise with the dark blue grey walls
