10 Easy Pieces: Wall Vases

Issue 61 · Bath & Spa · February 26, 2013

Is there anything better than an instant and inexpensive design fix? A wall vase is an easy way to add a touch of green to bare walls or give life to a small space.

With the initial investment of the vase (some priced as low as $3 each), you can continue to switch out your flora (cut from the garden or picked up at the florist) year-round. Here are ten of our favorite wall vases:
