You just finished arranging all the new furniture and placing the rug in your freshly painted room, and yet it feels empty and unfinished. My go-to remedy for adding that well-styled designer touch is to display a cool assortment of white vases and dishware. They are easy to find, easy to match to any existing décor and easy to integrate into any type of room.
A collection of differently shaped tall and short vases that are kept cohesive by their minimalist white ceramic bodies is the goal.
Upgrade a so-so room into a showcaseworthy sample with a nice arrangement of snowy ceramic vases on a console. I love how they complement the monochromatic tones of this sitting room.
You need not invest in many vases. You can try out the look first by clustering two or three on a console table, then grow from there.
Finding an arrangement of pale ceramic vases on a dining table is not what I would expect here, so it feels fresh.
I am actually smitten with a single row of identical white vases, each with a spring of greenery, along the dining table. Such a simple arrangement really brightens up the space.
The kitchen is a natural home for your empty vases kept handy near the sink to fill with water for fresh flowers. Housed among other white dishware, especially in open shelving, they look just right.
White with natural wood is one of my favorite finish combinations. The combination of pearly vases on white floating shelves against a darker wood panel is gorgeous in any room.
Alabaster vases need not be simplistic. In this dining room setting, they are downright exotic and kooky. Think outside the box when incorporating this idea into your décor.
And don't forget the bathrooms. They can use a decorator's final touch as well.
IKEA is a great source for a supercheap vase to start your arrangement. You just won't find much variation in size and shape.
West Elm offers an entire line of differently sized, slightly glossy white ceramic vases at moderate prices.
2 Modern also has a handsome offering.
