Three modern white and gold vases

Vases are a wonderful accessory that can be added to virtually any space in your home. Available in more shapes, colours, and styles than imaginable, vases are a great finishing touch to your decor.


Vases are practical as they can hold flowers and candles, or they can simply be decorative — it all depends on your space and your personal preference.


Here are a few ways to incorporate vases in your home:



Placing small groupings of vases together is definitely on trend. The vase grouping will look extra special if you mix and match different sizes and shapes.


Colour and patterns

Grouped or solo, you can showcase vases of different colours and patterns for a whimsical look.



There are so many places that vases look great. Spaces include: bathroom counters, bedroom night tables, dining room tables, entryway consoles, media consoles, bookshelves, and more. Just make sure you place your vases in a spot where you won’t knock them over!


Feng Shui

Some people decorate by incorporating the principles of Feng Shui. In this case, you may want to create a ‘wealth vase’. A wealth vase is typically a vase with a smaller neck than the body, that has a cover. The idea is to fill the inside of the vase with contents to bring wealth into your life. Elements can include: gems, crystals, coins, etc.


Whatever your style, vases look great in every home. Visit us at Smitty’s to find perfect vases for your home today.
