The Voice of a Vignette:Sarita of The Orange Gift Bag

Hello everyone and welcome to another inspiring vignette! This beauty is coming to us from Sarita, the editor over at The Orange Gift Bag. Sarita and I meet at the Hive Blogging Conference back in May and have stayed in touch ever since. I have no doubt her inspiration will lead you right to your heart. I am grateful to have such wonderful guests on this fun little series of mine. It truly is a gift to step inside a vignette where the real meaning takes place. Enjoy this Copenhagen wish a splash of Bombay flavor creation by Sarita!

Wishing you all a pleasant day with many moments of pure joy,

Jocelyn xx


Thank you Jocelyn for inspiring me to create this vignette and giving me the opportunity to share it on The Inner Interior.

I created this vignette in a part of my window sill (old apartments in Copenhagen have lovely, large window sills!). I love this cozy nook and I use it as a space to drum up beautiful things for my home and my blog, The Orange Gift Bag. What you see in this vignette is a few of my favourite things that create a space that’s artistic, soothing and inspiring to me.

The canary yellow painting is one I made of my hometown, Bombay in India. I’m always finding ways to fuse my Indian aesthetic with my newfound love for Danish design. I liked the juxtaposition of the bright colours in the painting against the pure Scandinavian blue of the lantern; in a way it’s symbolic of my Indian roots and my current life in Denmark.

The blue log with the birds is a keepsake from my travels with my husband; a plain log of wood that I painted with a pair of lovebirds, reminding us of the good times we’ve shared. What you see in the backdrop is a painting inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s art, made and gifted to me by my best friend. I love how the girl looks like she’s straight out of a superhero movie!

In addition to everyday art, I like being surrounded by inspiring quotes and words. If I come across a quote I like, I write it down on a piece of paper and put it up. What I choose is often revealing of how I’m feeling at the moment. And finally, I chanced upon these lovely flowers in the garden outside my apartment and loved the idea of bringing a little bit of the beautiful outdoors to my indoor space.

Finding inspiration in the things around me, being grateful for what I have and hope for the future is what my vignette is about – it’s a tiny moment in the story of my life.
