Skillfully put a vase in a space and see magic
Transforming Spaces with Decorative Vases
As more and more people prefer modern design elements in their home interiors, the good old decors tend to be growing less and less popular. One good example is vases. These delicate pieces have been in our homes for centuries and we have seen how our grandmothers care for and adore them. It is sad how the modern minimalist and contemporary style trends tend to cast these wonderful pieces aside. They have been replaced by metal sculptures, pop artworks, and many other types of “newer” decors.
In reality, vases are the unsung heroes of interior design. They come in virtually all shapes, sizes, colors, textures, and materials. They add style and character to any table, countertop, or just about any space. Vases are truly wonderful design elements that you should not sleep on. Here are some ideas and tips on decorating your home with vases.
Display as bold accents
Add a pop of color on a boring front door by using a large bright colored vase. The boldness and sheer size of it will serve as a cheerful welcome sign to family and guests. How about putting twin vases on both sides of the door?
Spice up your stair landing
Your stair’s landing is another prime spot for an accent. A trio of elegant wooden vases of different heights, for instance, can add more drama to a modern staircase. Consider matching them with some lush indoor plants.
Perk up a lonely corner
Large vases can turn a plain corner into a focal point. You can decorate it with simple twigs or hang an artwork on top to make the area look more interesting. Just a tip: those old clay pots with distressed look will never fail you!
Liven up the mantle
Awkward mantles deserve some sprucing up. And what better way to do it than placing a group of vases! You can go for vases of different tones or sizes and match them with some fresh flowers or maybe family photos.
Mix it with some greeneries
Vases are not just for blooms. Green foliage and stems also look great on them. Clear vases, for instance, are perfect for decorative green leaves. They look clean and work well as accents on tables and hallways.
These are only some of the thousands of ways to decorate with vases. The next time you shop for vases, get good pieces that you can easily mix and match with other decors you have at home. Also, don’t just focus on aesthetics; find pieces of good quality so they can last for a long time. Lastly, go for classic vase shapes and designs for they don’t go out of style.
