Decorating your home with vases
Vases are one of the most overlooked decorating pieces that easily bring a room together by adding an elegant decorative touch. The best part about decorating your home with vases is that you don’t always need to have fresh flowers on hand to put in them. We’ve put together a list of our favorite decorative vases to put in your home and included some great vase filler ideas.
Tall floor vase
This vase design is a great statement piece that looks lovely in an unused corner of the room or on an accent table in an entrance way. If you are decorating on a budget you can definitely find a lot of reasonably priced cheap floor vases. To balance the big vase’s height, fill this vase with some twisted and curly willow branches. If you want a soft glow, put in some lighted branches. You can also mix in some peacock feathers for added color.
Fish bowl vase
This is a cool vase because the oversized nature of the round shape gives you a lot of creative freedom to decoratively fill it the way you want. Particularly if this is a clear glass fish bowl vase you can fill it with gemstone pebbles on the bottom and then arrange a few Calla Lilly flowers inside to fill out the vase’s circular shape, which makes for a beautiful centerpiece. And interestingly keeping the flowers inside the vase actually preserves them for longer. However, if you do not want to go down the flower route you can fill it with sea shells and some sand for a beach feel. Or you can store your fun costume jewelry that you don’t wear very often. Really any kind of abandoned jewelry, like earrings that you lost one of, or buttons and beads look chic and cool arranged randomly in a glass vase.
These vases have a great antique feel because they are typically characterized by a hand painted finish. Whether it is an oriental design or a floral motif, these vases also look great with willow branches coming out. And depending on the lighted branches, they can even look similar to cherry blossom branches, which complement the oriental design.
