If you're drawn to a more minimalist aesthetic in your interiors, that doesn't mean bare walls and empty surfaces are your only route. Rather, try incorporating a handful of well-chosen pieces that speak to your personality without dominating it. The fewer pieces you have, the more special they can become.
It makes total sense that 'outline vases' – two-dimensional-looking wire frames designed to hold stems of dried flowers – are the minimalist's go-to for adding a touch of character to an otherwise clutter-free corner. A bold, geometric reinterpretation of the vase, they are a way to bring the softness of dried flowers into your home. They can blend into a neutral palette or stand out as an almost cartoonish drawing of a vase.
For those who find the black outline a bit too much, there are also ceramic versions (sometimes called donut vases) which come in softer, more autumnal colours but maintain the unexpected vase outline.
