A “vignette” is a carefully composed scene or snapshot. It’s also a popular concept in the interiors industry and the inspiration behind The Vignette Room, a store owned by Tracey Kennedy and her daughter Jennifer Brown.

The shop occupies a historic double-fronted terrace. The beautiful old building has lots of character and a small courtyard out the back. The pair has hung different chandeliers in the front rooms to further enhance the mood.

The various rooms serve as the perfect setting for Brown and Kennedy’s vignettes. The store reflects the preferences of each respective half of the pair. Brown describes her mother’s taste as more “bling”, while her own is closer to “bohemian”.

The store contains lighting, bedding, candles, soft furnishings and furniture, such as the marble-and-gold tables from award-winning designer Greg Natale. There's also kitchen and dinnerware.
