When it comes to home decor, there are endless possibilities. Although 60% of high end furnishings customers look for items that make them feel calm and comfortable, that doesn’t mean those furnishings will all be utilized in the same way. Even beautiful, hand-crafted items like Murano vases can be used in all kinds of unique ways. Don’t believe us? Check out these five ways to show off these vintage Italian glass vases in your home.
- Brighten up an entryway
If you want to make your guests feel welcomed and make a great impression on them from the start, why not put your Murano vases to good use by your doorway or in your entryway? This can be especially effective if you have alcoves or built-in shelves where you can showcase these unusual home accessories to their very best. This is also a great way to introduce color into an otherwise monochrome space.
- Put them on the mantel
You may be lucky enough to have a fireplace in your living room, dining room, or home office. For those who aren’t quite sure how to decorate it (or want something there besides knick-knacks and family photos), colorful vases can be an excellent addition to that space. You can even use a few different ones to create a more sculptural look that can act as a focal point of the room.
- Place them above cabinets
Homes that have ample storage in the kitchen, living room, and dining room in the form of cabinetry might have a bit of extra space up top. Those who don’t have ceiling-height cabinets can make good use of that space by sticking some decorative elements on top — including your glass Murano vases. For best results, add in some cove lighting, other textures, and pieces that will complement these vases and make it look like an intentional choice (rather than storage overflow).
- Fill them up
Clear and colored vases are meant to be vessels for other items. Oftentimes, those items are flowers, but that isn’t a strict rule. Sand, pebbles, pinecones, marbles, and shells can all look fantastic in a glass vase. That way, you can place it on a table as a centerpiece and switch out the filler throughout the year.
- Get lit
Who doesn’t love to light a candle on a cozy night in? You can really appreciate your candle collection if your house them in glass vases. When they’re lit, they’ll become a beautiful beacon during a romantic dinner or an evening by a crackling fire. Keep in mind that high temperatures can damage certain kinds of decorative glass, so err on the side of caution when choosing a vase for this purpose.
Regardless of your personal style or budget, you can easily use glass vases to improve your decor and make it truly one-of-a-kind. To find out more about decorating with Murano glass vases and other luxury decor items, contact us today.
