Think outside the box: try turning a basket on its side to use as a backdrop for color and texture behind a smooth ceramic vessel. We love how the orange color here compliments the blues surrounding it.
The dorm-style bathroom of HGTV Dream Home 2011 was designed to accommodate large groups with three ceramic vessel sinks and floor-to-ceiling shelving. The red tiled countertop provides a splash of color in the overall neutral space.
Designed to accommodate a large crowd of kids, the dorm bathroom pops with a bright tomato-red countertop and ski-inspired accessories. Three ceramic vessel sinks lit by industrial-inspired light fixtures provide plenty of space for washing up.
Imperfect is the new perfect: a handmade ceramic vessel created by Nancy Fire showcases the beauty of imperfection when natural materials and craft come together. Studio NYC’s textured canvas and a large-scale hammered metal candlestick bring in more subtle texture.
Ceramic tiles in beautiful ocean and sky blues bring soothing colors to this space in addition to custom teak border and shelving above the soaking tub, open glass shower, recessed lighting, travertine floors, a double vanity with vessel sinks, integrated shelving for storage, and a wall hung toilet.
Texture is a non-literal way to bring touches of winter into your space. The look and feel of a cable-knit sweater is evocative of a winter wardrobe. To use this texture in an unexpected manner, consider ceramic or plaster vessels featuring the cable-knit pattern. You can even make your own vessels by cutting old sweaters to size and adhering them directly to glass or ceramic vases with spray adhesive or starch.
If youâre looking to add a centerpiece to your table top without the added expense of cut floral, consider using potted greenery. This look can be formal with the use of more elegant ceramic pots, or keep it casual and classic with basic terra cotta vessels.
No two of the century-old, deep blue ceramic jars in the living room’s built-in shelves are alike; actually, no single jar is fully alike. “They are from the southwest of France near Toulouse, and are part of a larger collection,” owner Stacy Borocz says. “Old European vessels are typically a generational item, so since they traded hands so many times over the years, the tops end up being mixed and matched or refreshed by their various owners.” That spirit carries over to the coffee table and its changing cast of characters. “That is one accent piece I change all the time,” she explains. “I am an avid collector of design books, so I am always sorting new with old based on what I am reading at the time.”
