Inexpensive, elegant and versatile, pottery is a worthwhile addition to your home, and you should definitely consider getting some for your interior design project. Pottery is used to decorate different areas of the home but the living room is perhaps the most popular.
If you are new to pottery or if you are a skeptic looking to have your opinion swayed, then this article might just help you out. Here are a few ideas of how you can style your living room by simply using pottery.
Pottery bowls are not only useful as kitchen utensils but, they can be used as decorative ornaments as well. If you are looking to add some much-needed color to your living room, you can introduce smooth, contoured ceramic bowls that will be sure to catch anyone’s eye. You can also use ceramic bowls to display artificial fruit, marbles or any other intricate little pieces you wish to use to decorate various tables in your living room.
Vases come in different shapes and sizes, and you can either opt for plain vases or ones with elaborate, elegant designs. They are quite sturdy and can hold beautiful plants and flowers that accentuate your décor or they can just stand alone as cabinet decorations.
Feel free to get creative and group different groups of similar styled and colored vases together to create a sophisticated effect that will draw attention to your cabinet. The beauty of vases is that they are quite deep and are able to cover up unattractive plant stems while only revealing the colorful plants and flowers. You can also opt for vintage ceramic vases but, they might cost you a lot of money depending on their age and value.
Now, this might be a foreign concept to some, but decorating your living room with ceramic plates is not as weird as it sounds. Plates work well when hung up on living room walls, and white ceramic plates are especially good at accentuating the rest of the furniture in the room, while adding a vibrant touch to your interior. There are many different ways and patterns you can choose from to create the perfect wall decorations, and it is fairly easy to do it by yourself at home.
In addition to plates, bowls, and vases, there are various other forms of decorative pottery you can use to style your living room, and these include candle holders and clocks. If you are a fan of larger sized pottery, you can opt for interior flower pots that you can plant fresh plants in, or use to display artificial plants and flowers.
Pottery is fairly cheap and worth in investing in, and if you wish to get creative, you can make your own pottery at home and design it using store bought paint and decorative pieces. It is quite fragile and so care should be taken to handle it appropriately. There are plenty of benefits to styling your living room with pottery, and you should definitely try it out.
