Colored crystal vases come in different forms, shapes and sizes. Some types of colored crystal vases may have etchings or cuts on the surface, though colored crystal vases are mostly enjoyed for their color and the way the light plays upon the clarity of the glass or on the vase’s translucence. If there are etchings or cuts on the vase’s surface, it is meant to refract the light and enhance the beauty of the glass itself.
Given this, colored crystal vases should always be placed on a shelf or a surface where the light can shine upon them all the time. The best way to place colored crystal vases is as a set of matching hues, with dim yellow or white light focused upon them. The light will allow the color of the glass to suffuse about the room and aid in setting an energizing or a relaxing mood for the people using that room.
Color therapists claim that colors affect the body. The body’s reaction to a certain color can enhance the ability of the body to heal itself. Therefore, when choosing colored crystal vases as décor to a room, one should be clear as to the function of the room. If the room is supposed to be warm, inviting and relaxing, then the hues of the colored crystal vases should be warm and relaxing too.
Placement is very important when it comes to arranging colored crystal vases as décor for a space. The color of the vases and the light shining upon them should be enough to draw attention to them. Wherever they are placed, colored crystal vases should serve as the room’s focal point. No other item of décor should be placed near them in order to create a sense of balance and so as not to confuse the eyes.
This is also the reason why many homeowners would rather not use their colored crystal vases as vessels for cut flowers. Again, colored crystal vases are usually enjoyed for their color alone. Too much of a good thing can be bad, and putting flowers in a colorful colored crystal vase can be too much on the eyes. Balance is always necessary.
