Try the power of three. Three objects arranged in a small cluster are instantly interpreted by the eye as a carefully edited group display, rather than a random concoction — be they on a mantelpiece or a table. These two ceramic containers teamed with a simple glass bottle vase are a case in point. Try objects of subtly different lengths or widths for maximum effect.
Tip: A bunch of white blooms in a glass vase is another instant update that works pretty much anywhere.
