Decorating With Bowls

I know it might be a little weird to designate a whole post solely on bowls, but they are one of my favorite accessories in design.  I have them in every room of my home.  They are functional, beautiful, come in all shapes and sizes and are useful for just about anything and everything. From organizing jewelry to displaying a  simple bloom of your favorite flower, a bowl is a perfect object to have handy. 

Here are some of my favorite spaces/vignettes that used bowls in their decor.

This last photo is a nook in our bedroom where I use two bowls for an easy place to drop off jewelry at the end of the day.  I found them at GoodWill.  I actually have found my most favorite bowls at GoodWill. 
What do you think about bowls.  Perfect accessorise for a room or dust collector?

P.S.  Thank you to all stopping by my blog for the first time via Camille over at the Vintique Object.  Her post yesterday sent many of you my way and I enjoyed all your emails and comments.  Looking forward to checking your blogs out as well! 

Be Well,


  1. Perfect accessory! I especially like footed bowls, like the ones in your room and the Lonny photo.

  2. Heather, thank you for featuring one of my photos! I am flattered. I have several other bowls around the house so I too am a fan of decorating with them.

  3. After seeing these pictures, I think I need a blue and white bowl or two around the house. That third image is awesome.

  4. Simple and beautiful. It's hard to ask for much more than that.
