5 Tips for Decorating with Vases

Vases are a versatile and a quick way to change the look of your home. They can help add personality to different rooms in your home, and a vase can give several different expressions depending on whether you let it shine as it is, decorate it with a colourful bouquet, or perhaps a more subdued bunch of dried grasses. We hope these 5 tips can help you make the most of your vase collection and create an inviting and stylish home.

1. Colour Coordination:

Choose vases that harmonise with the room's colour theme. Trademark Living's vases made of recycled glass come in various shades, so choose colours that complement your decor or contrast it for a bolder expression. The collection offers a rich palette of colours from deep chocolate to clear grey and a lovely light smoke colour, among others. These colours easily complement other natural materials like wood, clay, and metal, adding a modern touch to any room.

2. Play with Heights and Shapes:

Combine vases of different heights and shapes to create dynamics in your room. For example, you can create beautiful still life on tables or shelves by mixing vases of different heights and shapes, some with flowers, grasses, or pillar candles, and others without. Place tall vases in the background and short ones in the front to achieve a layered effect that attracts the eye. If you prefer a Scandinavian interior style, vases with organic shapes fit in incredibly well.

3. Mix Materials:

For a more eclectic vibe, mix materials by combining vases made of different materials such as ceramic, papier-mâché, glass, or metal. This adds texture and makes your still life more interesting. Choose coloured glass vases or metal vases with bouquets in bold colours if you want to add colour to your decor. If you prefer neutral colours, consider a combination of vases in earthy tones such as clay or papier-mâché vases with a bouquet of dried flowers.

4. Focal Points:

Use a statement vase as a central focal point in your room. A large, eye-catching vase can serve as a sculpture and add character and style to the surroundings. You can place the vase on a pedestal, stool, or side table to further highlight it. A large vase with a few striking branches or flowers can also be the finishing touch to your table setting for a special occasion or simply provide a beautiful eye-catcher in everyday life.

5. Seasonal Changes:

Change the contents of your vases according to the season to constantly renew and update your home. In summer, fresh flowers can bring colour, while dried branches or pampas grass can provide warmth in winter. Also, remember that you don't always need flowers in your vases. Often, a vase can serve as a stand-alone decoration. You will also find several vases in Trademark Living's collections on top of which a taper candle fits perfectly and others that are large enough to hold a pillar candle.
