Howdy! I finally finished styling my tall dresser with the oyster mirror and ranunculus flowers I made last month and a women’s bust that I recently discovered in a local shop. Dressers and tall chests can be tricky to decorate. Here are some lovely examples that showcase pretty vignettes with various styles. Scroll down for tips to creating a perfectly styled dresser.
Steps for Creating a Stylish Dresser Vignette
Step one: Start with a vertical mirror or piece of art. If it is larger, lean it against the wall. If the scale is on the smaller side, hang it up a few inches to give it more height.
Step two: Layer in a smaller piece of art (or two) on one side to add to the width. Overlap the frames a bit so there isn’t a gap.
Step three: Balance out the other side with a sculptural piece like a figurine or vase that is a different height. Books are great way to add more layers and elevation.
Step four: Take a step back and see how your eye moves around. You will probably want to fill a little more of the negative space. Keep smaller items in groups of three or five and various heights.
