Balto Contemporary Vase – Habitat Review


gb.habitat (1 of 1)-2Who doesn’t love a statement piece to brighten up a boring space.  I find the fantastic thing about some vases is they can look good with or without flowers and the Balto vase from Habitat is exactly like this.  Bold, bright and tactile it’s perfect for any space.  To touch it feels substancial, with its thick textured body and that bold saffron yellow exterior calling your eyes over.

The colour is bold but not brash and the texture catches the light giving it an extra 3d kind of element.  I particularly like it against a contrasting background which is why I placed it in my living room against my teal fireplace wall.

The vase is perfect for cut flowers, at 28cm tall its larger than the avergae vase so stops flower stems from drooping and alows to create a fun arrangement.  I picked flowers from my garden, some cow parsley for foliage, then lovely bright and bold tulips and even a bit of delicate clematis. I think this vase would look particularly good with dafodills too, their tall trumpets picking out the yellow in the vase.  Picking flowers is such a joy, I highly recommend it for a bit of light relief!

I was sent the balto vase free of charge for the purpose of this review, all word, pictures and opinions are my own.

  2. That’s a perfect sized vase for making one’s own flower display. I think it would be a bit too modern for my house but would look perfect in a more contemporary setting. I love your choice of flowers and totally agree with you that picking flowers brings joy.

  3. Interesting textures with the Vase. I also love the flowers you have picked.

  6. Oh gosh they are beautiful.x

  7. Nice vase. Not too keen on the colour (although does look great against flowers), but the design means it doesn’t look too much like a vase when there’s no flowers in it.
