Vintage Vignette - June 2015
This month - a look at how to incorporate vintage games into your decor for pivotal punch!

A stack of colorful board games can serve the same purpose of a stack of books in regards to display. Use a small stack of travel-sized games to define height when displaying items in your home. A bookshelf arranged by colors can easily be balanced by a small collection of colorful litho-tin canisters.
Black and white wooden dominos make for interesting fillers in bowls and vases as do colorful marbles. The ONE thing I allow myself to collect is vintage marbles. Not only do they not take up a lot of space, I can use them to fill bottles, vases, and even pull the Chinese checker board off of the wall and play.
Give some thought into displaying your collection in a vignette. Like items arranged together in a variety of positions and heights can really show of your collection. Don't stuff it all into a China cabinet and call it a day. Get creative!
So before you pack those board games away for a rainy day, reevaluate their potential and see if they can be incorporated into your home's décor!
