When decorating your home it can sometimes be fun to play with scale a little bit. That's why I'm especially excited about a new trend I'm seeing more and more of: oversized vases. Giant flower arrangements (in giant vases) are more than just pretty accents: they can change the feel of an entire room.

This treatment doesn't just work with flowers: you can also make a big statement with tree branches and other assorted greenery, as seen on Emmas Designblogg.
This space from Dustjacket Attic features an explosion of branches that resembles a small tree.
A cut branch in a vase can be just as dramatic as a floral arrangement (and much, much larger). Spotted on SF Girl by Bay.
