Dive into these sea-colored vases and get some great styling tips.

Astrologers may disagree on the exact timing of the Age of Aquarius (apparently lyrics from the 1967 musical “Hair” spout a bunch of hooey), but in true Aquarian fashion, a growing tribe of decorative vases are staging a counter culture rebellion all their own.

Unconventional, playful and mesmerizing in variant shades of turquoise and aquamarine—we’d follow these pretty water-bearers anywhere.

Dimond-decorative-vaseDecorative vase — Dimond Home

The design team at Dimond Home searches for ways to mix and match eco-friendly regional natural resources, rich metals and glass with precision engineering and cool technologies. We’re the first to admit that the two concepts make strange bedfellows, but somehow it works.

Similarly, oil and water may not mix under normal circumstances, but on this extraordinary vase, the two substances have a chemistry that makes it hard to look away. Featuring a bubbly web of gold, silver and aquamarine, the vase is a functional work of art that looks great whether it’s stuffed with flowers or just standing there serenely on its own.

No need to travel far and wide to expand your home decor experience. Let the worldly style experts at Jaime Young Company do the footwork for you. Want to inject some serenity now with a side of quiet coastline? The company’s handmade large Vapor vase finished in metallic aqua has you covered.

Style the ethereal accessory with a woven natural pouf like this jute one from Surya and pretty aqueous and textured wallpapers like this one from UK designer Abigail Edwards or this one from Juju





 John-Richard-Deep-Blue-Sea-vasesDeep Blue Sea — John-Richard

What’s better than one aqua blue vase? The answer is always two (or more) aqua blue vases. This Deep Blue Sea pair from John-Richard features hand-blown glass in gorgeous blueish-green aquamarine. But where it really gets good is in the vases’ irregular but oddly soothing patterns that resemble the swirling and bubbling of crashing waves.

Keep the duo cool with black and white and lush greens, or snuggle them up with warm earth tones and chocolate brown furniture and accents. 





Cyan-Design-On-the-WaterOn the Water — Cyan Design

Most interior design clients need a little calmness and tranquility in their homes, and it's up to designers to find a way to inject that calmness into a normally chaotic home. Thanks to serene glass vases from Cyan Design, there's hope.

The company’s On the Water design features linen patterned turquoise blue glass that can both energize an interior and affect a stillness in any season if it’s executed right.

For the color’s maximum benefits, tie in the aquamarine theme elsewhere in a room — think throws, pillows, decorative bowls and knick-knacks. Then, sit back, relax and enjoy the view.
