Floor vases are a great tool for decorating the corner spaces in your home, which are often frustrating and overlooked in a design plan. Many people tend to put a live houseplant in a corner, but if the lighting is wrong, the plant may die. Or, they try to place awkward corner shelving in such a corner. An excellent alternative might be placing a floor vase in an empty corner to enhance your décor. Floor vases come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. They can be used alone for dramatic effect if they have a color scheme matching their surroundings, or if they are of an unusual or striking shape. To create more height, texture or drama, one or more of the following can be inserted into the floor vase: a dried, natural tree branch or flower, a synthetic branch or flower from a local hobby store, some twinkling string lights, and rocks of various colors or textures, alone or with a branch, twig or floral arrangement emanating from the rocks. Placing flowering bulbs in water in clear vase in a corner can also be a lovely and easy alternative. Upturning a plant stand to hold the vase is another unusual possibility. You can even line up a collection of vases on shelves or in a corner, as well as placing them alone on a table in the room. Let your creativity flow with floor vases, and don’t be afraid to break the rules!
