Design Tip: Decorative Vases
Posted on Thursday, July 05 2018 12:00:00 AM in Blog by Kathy Choi-Lee
One thing a keen eye will notice in most design schemes, is a pair or trio of different sized or heights of similar or different vases. This is a design tip!
By adding two, three vases together on a console table, a shelf or even a side table, you'll draw the eye upwards in the room, filling the space and completing a fabulous look.
Most commonly, designers use similar vases, but in different heights and maybe variant shapes. Think of a happy couple. A taller person compliments a smaller statured person. The same goes for vases. You can add a third smaller child sized vase too, to bring even more depth to the design.
What about mini or bud vases?
If you're going mini, a set of similar heights with various shapes would be a great addition to a room, though it will only fill the flat space, not drawing a persons' eye upwards like a tall floor lamp would do.
There are endless ways to use vases in a room design, but when starting with an empty canvas, why not start with what you love first and then add on or take away from there.
Another tip: Less is more!
