Let’s look at some pretty vases

5

 

Nowhere is my inability to choose one home design aesthetic and stick with it more apparent than in my taste in vases, it turns out. The ones I’ve chosen here are truly all over the map, but I do think they’re also all pretty good, starting with this fun, poppy yellow polka-dotted number.

This one has a distinct millennial vibe, but we won’t hold that against it.

I like how sculptural this is.

 

Here’s one with a nicely organic shape.

A black vase is a dramatic choice, and flowers would really pop in it.

Do I only like this because it’s Fornasetti? Possibly, but I also think it would look glorious with a mess of spring blooms in it.

This smoked glass vase comes in a number of hues, but I like this murky gray.

A well-priced and graphic option that’d look great on a bedside table.

I own a brass vase like this one from Hawkins New York, and aside from liking the way it looks, I really appreciate that it’s unbreakable.

    PS, you have millennial readers too! On the older end of the millennial age range, but still, I’ve been here since you launched (and absolutely worshiped Lucky too). Good style is good style. Hope you are well during all this craziness.

      Kate, sorry if I offended you. I love all of my readers. And one of my best friends is 32, so clearly I don’t practice what I preach.

    I am currently reading ‘Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness’ by Ingrid Fetell Lee which is right in line with this post. While life is surreal and chaotic and maybe scary, we can still cultivate joy.

    The last time I moved (almost a year ago) I again weeded out my from-the-florist-shop vases and am down to one vase––a chipped (my fault) Waterford crystal vase that my mother gave me a million years ago. ALL of these are appealing. The Fornasetti is outstanding.

    Perfect timing-I was just looking for a new vase to sit on a new piece of furniture (and give me an excuse to buy more flowers, or maybe just foliage). These are gorgeous, and I want several of them (I love the brass one, and the sculptural ones in white and black). The Fornasetti is interesting but is above my pay grade.
