Sims Mobile Vignettes
While a few of the key ingredients of a house are fairly obvious — bedrooms, a living space, a bathroom, and a kitchen— it can sometimes feel difficult to pin down just what combines to create a /home./
We’ve already discussed the power of clutter, which makes a house feel truly “lived in,” but another component of an authentic-looking home is well-placed vignettes.
In literature and film, a vignette is a small, but descriptive story that gives further insight into a character. In interior design, a vignette is a small area of a home that you stack interesting pieces into that please the eye or tell a story. This is often done with shelves, but any part of a home that tells a story, that exists mostly for decorative purposes, can reveal more about the people who live in the home— or in this case— about your Sims.
How to create a vignette
✔️Consider the season: gather seasonal plants or flowers and place them together on a shelf or in a yard. Felisha offers a great example with her pumpkin patch.
✔️Consider mood: Players can easily set a gloomy or creepy mood with a cluster of gravestones. Felisha does this too in her yard.
✔️Fill space: Empty corners are fabulous places for vignettes; stack bits and bobs on top of accent tables or crates for a farm house look. ShellyBee Sim does this with the Wumples vignette set.
✔️Keep it simple: No need to overcrowd each time! One lone item out of place can a tell a story all its own.
