Decorating with vases – Hi, I’m Majken, and I’m an interior designer! I’ve put together a few easy ideas to help you create a still life using vases. The first step is to pick the pieces that really speak to you. I love the shape of this vase, so I’m going to use it as the foundation.
Now, start creating your still life by grouping the vases in odd numbers. Sometimes too much symmetry can feel a bit stiff. Go for different shapes and sizes, placing the tallest in the back to create a sense of height, and building out from there. And think about mixing in some pieces that aren’t originally avase, like a glass, an old jar, and decorative items. It creates a more dynamic look. When I’m shaping my still lives at home, I try to imagine the shape of an egg. This helps me to find a nice balance between the different items I’m placing.
Secrets of a stylist: Decorating with vases
The next step is to add flowers and branches, leaving a few vases empty to give the still life some room to breathe. You don’t have to use the same types of flowers, but try to stick with the overall color scheme. And one more small tip: Treat your flowers like you’d treat a pet — fresh water every day! This way they’ll last much longer. So there you have it! A few easy steps to create a beautiful vase still life. Now that you know the essential steps, you can use them to change things up and create lots of new styles, like I did. Enjoy!
