"I love [showrooms], their vignettes of stylish furniture and picture-perfect kitchen systems make it easy to focus on domesticity."

While reading through the November issue of Metropolitan Home, this quote from Dixie Chick, Emily Robinson caught out attention. Her San Antonio loft is simply beautiful and looks like the perfect place to cook a meal or talking the night away with friends, all thanks to vignetted furniture. Our thoughts on this idea after the jump...

What intrigued us about Emily's words on loving showrooms and their groupings of furniture, was the word domesticity.

We thought back to our own experiences of flipping photos of spaces we love from all sorts of media. We have a tendency to save pictures of spaces that feel like we could accomplish something (cooking, working, crafting). Vignetted furniture and accessories have a tendency to keep the clutter refined to one or two places in a room and allow the rest to feel open, airy and inviting, which usually allows our mind to think of all the ways we could occupy it.

You can see the rest of her lovely loft over at Metropolitan Home.

Do you like vignetted stylings? Or do they feel too much like a showroom in your home? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
