8 Ways to Make Short Home Decor Appear Taller | Home Styling 101 Episode 3


Sometimes your favorite or most meaningful
décor is too small, short, or flat to be seen. We talked in the last video about the importance
of varying the height of your décor. Here’s eight ways to elevate your short décor
to new heights. Welcome to Home Styling 101. I’m Jackie Hernandez, and in this series I’m
going to teach you how to arrange your home décor and home accessories. Number one: Use a stack of books to elevate
small décor. Here, on this stack, I have a collection of
bells. This stack of books helps give them more presence
and groups them together. You can also use a stack of books to elevate
a single decorative object or give an extra few inches to a lamp that’s too short. Use plate stands to display flat objects upright. This is great for books, picture frames, plaques. I’ve got an ampersand here that we can put
up on the stand or a decorative plate. You could also use a plate stand to elevate
a small decorative tray. Number three is cake stands or candle plates. They can be used to elevate any arrangement,
not just small décor. One of my favorite ways to use them is to
elevate a stack of books, or you can just put an entire arrangement up on the cake stand. This is super cute in a kitchen or a bathroom. Number four is candlesticks. This works really great for anything in a
jar or that has a flat bottom. It also works really great for votive holders
that you want to have a little extra height, and it also works for decorative spheres. You can just balance them on top of the candlestick. Number five is bowls or pots. These are great for elevating anything with
a spherical shape. One of my favorites are these seedpod balls
that you can pick up at the craft store. A little faux greenery. Looks great sitting on top of the pot. You can also put it in the prediastole bowl
or in a regular bowl. Number six is decorative boxes. These can fill up a lot of visual space and
really prop up your small décor. I’ve got my little squirrel friend on top
of these boxes. I could also put the driftwood ball or really
any other type of small décor. Number seven is to put smaller décor or smaller
items inside of jars. I love to do this with natural elements. You’ve seen my use these a few times or even
a larger pine cone making it like a specimen jar. I also like it for collectable things. My mom gave me these vintage spools, and I
use them to keep my baker’s twine on. I put all of that in a jar. Then you can elevate these jars even further
on a candlestick or a stack of books. Number eight is binder clips, place card holders,
or giant clothes pins. These are great for displaying a favorite
photo, vintage flash cards, maybe a special greeting card or postcard you got for a loved
one. Anything that is lightweight and fits inside
the clip but you don’t necessarily want to frame. There you have it. Eight ways to give your favorite little décor
items big presence.
