4 Ways To Decorate with Crystals

Add a little sparkle to your home with these design ideas


Crystals, or colorful geodes found at the center of rocks, have found its way to becoming a home decor staple. However, while a lot of homeowners and designers have been having a ball experimenting with them, some are still apprehensive in fear of going overboard and making their space look like a local psychic shack. To help you modernize this one-of-a-kind material, we've listed down a few unexpectedly awesome ways you can try: 

Pair two types of crystals to form bookends.

If you're looking for a way to add character to your shelves, using two contrasting shades or sizes of crystals can help bring in color, texture, and depth. You can even add a couple of glass accessories to make your display more interesting. 

Turn them into charming planters.

Switch out any musty pots and bins for one-of-a-kind vases! These make your indoor garden look unique as well as add a touch of earthiness to your green corner, too. Don't be afraid to match the color of the crystals with the fresh blooms for a streamlined look. 

Paint a geode mural.

Love the look of geodes but not the biggest fan of rustic-inspired decor? Paint the pattern on the partitions of your home instead! No need to worry if you aren't artsy or crafty, you can always count on a professional muralist to get the job done. 

Change the furniture hardware with semi-precious stones.

Probably the easiest and the most subtle way to work with these shiny objects are by using them as makeshift drawer knobs. Save a few bucks by using replica geodes from the craft store and glue them down to the existing handles. That way, you'll be able to cop the look without wasting resources.
