Bowls and jars are easy ways to refresh your home décor or complete a look. The right vase can take pride of place on your dining room table or kitchen counter, or it can be used as the tallest focal piece in a carefully curated décor vignette. Bowls are great for keeping practical things like house-keys in one place; or for displaying sentimental items, such as a shell collection or pebbles picked up on special days out in nature. What’s more, decoration bowls and decoration jars also make great housewarming gifts.
So, what type should you buy? Consider your wants. Want décor accents that work well with your exotic furniture? Create a vignette on your sideboard or mantelpiece with a large, silver or bronze-finished vase embossed with exotic patterns. Do you like your home décor items to be multifunctional? Water pitchers or wine coolers can easily double up as decoration vases.
Bowls can be shallow or deep; small or large; functional or purely decorative. Large, food-safe metallic bowls are great for serving a fresh, sumptuous salad for guests on a special occasion. Or choose a stunning fruit bowl to make a style statement on your kitchen table every day of the year. If your aesthetic tends towards the nostalgic, a glass bon-bon bowl with a lid can be filled with hard candies and placed within easy reach (or not, depending on how often you want to indulge your sweet tooth!).
But decoration bowls needn’t be used for food only. Place a shallow one on your coffee table or counter to display candles, flowers, crystals or other precious objects.
