Make the Most of Your Large Vase

Some day you may stumble upon a large vase that you would love to buy, but you have no idea what to do with it. Well, you’re in luck because a good size vase can be a great accent piece in just about any room in your home. While most people would first choose their living room or dining room as the best spots to put a large vase, you really could add such a vase anywhere that you have room for it.

Some people like to tie in the color of their accent pieces to the rest of the room’s color palette. This is perfectly fine, but don’t feel that you always need to match everything in a room to the tee. Bringing new colors into the room with objects such as a large vase adds visual interest and excitement to your decor. The style or design of the vase can be different as well. Try an oriental vase in a traditional or even modern style room. Or combine a vase with earth tones with country style decor. It is you house, so you get to make the rules and you should make a habit of surrounding yourself with things that you love or that have some special meaning to you.

Depending on the size and style of your vase, it could stand on it’s own or you could add some tall flowers or branches for a very natural look. A large vase might look nice standing next to a doorway or a fireplace. If your vase is fragile, make sure that it is not in a high traffic area and consider putting some heavy objects inside to weigh it down and help prevent it from tipping. If you have the space, you could also have a grouping of two or three vases in different sizes. Do some experimenting and you will soon find that adding a large vase might be just what you need to make a room complete.
