Since fall is quickly approaching, we like the seasonal ideas mentioned above. You can add mini gourds or pumpkins to an old vase for a pop of orange. To get in the mood for Halloween, display some candy for the trick-or-treaters. For those who enjoy crafting, we love the rustic fall feel simply gluing acorns or twigs to the outside of a vase can add.

If these vase ideas have inspired you to redecorate the whole living room, we created fall color palettes for every home from trendy to traditional. Each color palette has pro tips to help make sure the all of the colors pop. It also includes links to some of our favorite design blogs for even more fun design inspiration.
