Our first #7Vignettes

7 vignettes

For so long we’ve admired the clever and creative photos that many of you post on Instagram during Interior Addict’s #7Vignette each month.

This month we decided it’s time to stop watching and start participating!

If you’re not familiar with 7 Vignettes, at the start of each month Jen from Interiors Addict posts 7 words and for one week people post an image on Instagram that represents the word assigned to that day.

This month, given the Christmas theme, the words were:
1. Tree
2. White
3. Childs play
4. Wish list
5. Wrap it up
6. Shine
7. Monochrome

And here are our photos…


Tree our first 7 vignettes

Of course, it had to be our pallet Christmas tree ๐Ÿ˜‰


White our first 7 vignettes

Some of our favourite textures all in white — feathers, marble, paper and clay.

Childs play

Childs play our first 7 vignettes

We made our own play doh and had a fun night creating this quirky and colourful flat lay, inspired by the super talented Adam France.

Wish list

Wish list our first 7 vignettes

As much as we love beautiful things, we know the best things at Christmas can’t be bought in a store. Wishing all of you a safe and merry Christmas filled with peace, love and joy, xx

Wrap it up

Wrap it up our first 7 vignettes

A Christmas tree made of gifts (you may recognise some of the wrappings from our 10 Christmas gift wrapping ideas post).


Shine our first 7 vignettes

There’s something magical about fairy lights and we like this idea for a space-saving Christmas tree.


Monochrome our first 7 vignettes

Putting a twist on the traditional black and white monochrome, we opted for a festive green and white theme.

We had fun playing along in our first 7 Vignettes but our week got manic and we slipped behind on our daily photos, so today we posted four photos (it’s within the rules ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) just to catch up!

Next time, we’ll try to be organised and have our seven photos ready to go before the start of the month (Jen generally gives you a few days notice).

What we loved most about joining in was meeting lots of other fabulous Instagrammers out there! There is a huge 7 Vignettes community on Instagram and they were even more welcoming and supportive of a ‘first timer’ than we could have imagined.

If you are looking for a fun and creative challenge, or want a bit of encouragement to brush up on your photography skills, we recommend joining in 7 Vignettes!

Domayne sponsored this month’s 7 Vignettes and gave away $50 vouchers each day to their favourite vignette, and a $200 voucher to the overall winner.

So not only is playing along with 7 Vignettes fun and a great way to meet other Instagrammers, you could walk away with a sweet prize too ๐Ÿ™‚
