I do consider vases to be an important home basic because I think it’s so nice to have fresh-cut flowers in your home as often as possible, and desperately wish I practiced what I preached. Occasionally, I’ll make it over to a neighborhood florist that sells the cutest mini-arrangements to go, or to the deli for some cheap tulips, but not nearly often enough. I’ve got plants, and they’re nice, but there’s something special about anyhing that’s in bloom—especially this time of year—so this post serves as a reminder to me to get cracking. I’m quite tempted by this bud vase set from Heath Ceramics—one vase is matte, the other glossy, which is such a nice touch.
Here’s the one to reach for when a guest brings over flowers—it’s a perfect size, and pretty much everything looks good in it.
I like the slick orange interior of this pick from Orla Keily.
A really nice blue, and super-cheap.
I just think this is rather clever.
And on the ultra-splurgy side of things: this beauty from Fornasetti.
Here one that’s very large and very well-priced.
