For many years, pottery has played an integral role in society, with many people collecting and making their own different variety. In some cases, ancient pottery has been sold for thousands, if not millions, of dollars, a true testament to how precious and appreciated pottery is.
Pottery comes in different sizes and shapes and acts as a simple, elegant addition to your overall home décor. It is quite the popular accessory for many homeowners, and there are many ways you can use it to enhance your interior design. Here are just a few tips to help you out.
1. Pottery is well known for adding a bit of color to many homes. If you are looking to further enhance this already cool feature, then look no further than plants. It is important to pair the plants with pottery that complements and draws attention to their beauty, as opposed to drowning it out.
2. If you are looking to give your home a clean, more uniform look then grouping your pottery by color is the best solution. In addition to creating the illusion of a purposeful collection, grouping your pottery also makes it look less cluttered.
This is likely to work out better if you have a clear, preferably white, background. Don’t stress yourself out by buying tons of pottery. Simply arrange a few pieces that vary in size to help catch people’s attention. You can group several colors together with the illusion of a giant pottery collection.
3. Now, as much organizing your pottery by color is helpful in decluttering your space, don’t be afraid to try out different designs of pottery. Grouping need not be monotonous and boring. Grouping different designs and mixing them with different shapes will add a bit of excitement to your décor.
You can start by putting the small pottery in the middle and the larger at the back to create a balance. Feel free to add in extra pieces to round out your décor and create an elegant, well-balanced look.
4. Spread your pottery out and don’t be afraid to decorate more than just one corner of the room. In addition to arranging it on a cabinet, you can put smaller pottery on your coffee table, your dining table and any other surfaces that might be in need of decorating.
Pottery with plants in it can be used to decorate other rooms as well such as the office or your kitchen. Take care not to make the pottery too big as it could get in the way of daily activities. Save the larger pottery for areas that are out of reach altogether or at least, out of everyone else’s path.
There are many ways to enhance your interior décor with pottery, but hopefully the tips mentioned above can help you get started. It’s worth noting that if you are working with plants, then you should use pottery that is bigger and deeper to give the plants ample space to grow. Your family and your guests will surely admire the added features of your home brought about by the pottery.
