If you’re like most people, the concept of home décor can be intimidating. Trying to get that picture-perfect magazine look is not only outside of most people’s budget, but also outside of most people’s expertise.
Accessorizing is the final layer when it comes to adding personality to your home. Even the most well-designed spaces can look empty without the finishing touches added. A sleek, modern look is what many go for when decorating with vases. The easiest way to achieve this look is to decorate with several similarly shaped vases placed closely together. Although many may think that the best way to display multiple vases is to spread them around the room, this can actually result in a cluttered, busy look overall.
One of our favorite ways to dial up the design is with vases. There are so many different styles, colors, materials, and textures to vases that when added, can easily elevate your home! Whether they are made of glass, porcelain, ceramic, wood, or even metal, vases can be just the thing to take your space to the next level!
Coloured glass vases are beautiful on their own but, thanks to their immense colour range, individual shapes and unique textures, it would be a crime not to take advantage by playing with different combinations.
Mix an accent colour in with some neutrals for an interior-designer-approved look, consider marrying taller designs with shorter ones and combining mottled textures with striped or ribbed designs.
Of course, sets of matching designs also work well and highlight the exacting quality of the vases. For example, a row of floral arrangements in matching vases along a dining table or kitchen island look sophisticated and tidy.
Because of their individual character, coloured glass vases exude a somewhat artistic vibe (and, rightly so) which makes them great options for spotlighting. A simple modern pedestal, side table or coffee table with a large-scale vase of interesting textures becomes an instant addition to an art collection, offering a new 3D element to the usual canvases and prints.
Coloured glass vases really come alive when light is added to the mix so treating them as decorative lanterns is an easy way to maximise their decorative lighting potential. Think about placing large pots or coloured vases with candles in your living room on a coffee table or side table, along the perimeter of an outdoor patio or in a bathroom. The results will be two-fold – decoration at all times of the day and atmospheric lighting at night.
There’s no doubt that these designs were made to be centrepieces because they’re equal parts versatile, chic and subtle. Their versatility means that they can be filled with flowers, plants, sticks, floating candles and any manner of accessories you can think of; they’re impossibly chic so can be left on the table between dinner parties; and they’re subtle enough that they won’t detract attention during dinner.
Overall, decorating with colourfull vases is a simple way to change the look of your home. Exploring the world of home décor doesn’t have to be difficult, start exploring today at our online furniture store.
