Decorating with Cloches: A Timeless & Elegant Touch to Your Home

Cloches have been a popular choice for interior decoration for centuries, and for good reason. Not only are they an elegant addition to any space, but there are so many possibilities when it comes to decorating them.


Originally used in 17th-century Europe to protect tender plants from frost, cloches have become a staple in home decor. A Cloche, which means "bell" in French, was originally used in gardening to protect delicate plants from harsh weather conditions. Over time, these glass domes made their way into interior design, where they became a staple in creating beautiful and unique displays. Today, cloches are not only functional but also serve as a stylish and elegant home decor accessory.


Perfect for Seasonal Decorating

During the holiday seasons, cloches can be used to create stunning Christmas and Easter displays. Fill them with ornaments, pinecones, fairy lights, or even miniature Christmas trees for a festive touch at Christmas. Add a bed of faux snow or greenery and then arrange some of your favouirite Christmas ornaments inside. For an extra touch of elegance, consider draping a string of mini-LED lights around the base and adding a sprig of mistletoe or some holly to the top.


For Easter decorating, fill them with pastel-colored eggs, spring flowers, or cute bunny figurines. The possibilities are endless, and the result is always magical. Simply place Easter eggs, small bunnies, or other festive trinkets inside the cloche to create a whimsical display. Add a few sprigs of fresh greenery or colorful flowers around the base for an extra pop of seasonal cheer.



Farmhouse Style

If you're a fan of farmhouse style, cloches are the perfect addition to your decor. Fill them with rustic elements like dried flowers, twine balls, or vintage farm tools for a charming farmhouse look. Your favourite ceramic or resin farm animals add the perfect amount of farm charm!


Place them on a mantel, or shelf, or use them as a table centerpiece to add a touch of warmth and nostalgia to your space. They also make quite a statement by simply placing it on the kitchen counter and filling it with fresh fruits or vegetables. You can also decorate it with small potted plants for a charming touch.











Hamptons Style

For those who love the coastal and airy feel of the Hamptons style, cloches can add a touch of sophistication to your decor. Fill them with beach finds like shells, sand dollars, coral, or starfish for a seaside-inspired look. To decorate your cloche, start by selecting a few natural elements such as moss, twigs, or small rocks for a rustic look. Then, add some small candles or antique trinkets to complete the look.



Vintage Style

To create a stunning, vintage display, fill the cloche with dried flowers, antique keys, or small vintage books. Timepieces from days gone by can add a touch of old-world charm to your cloche display. Place a vintage pocket watch or a miniature antique clock under the dome for a sophisticated and timeless look. Unlock the beauty of the past by incorporating vintage keys and locks into your cloche decor. Arrange a collection of ornate skeleton keys or antique padlocks inside the cloche for a whimsical and intriguing display.




Shabby Chic

To achieve the Shabby Chic look, pair the Cloche with distressed wooden trays, vintage lace doilies, and a mixture of antique knick-knacks. Create a whimsical feel by filling the Cloche with dried flowers, twinkle lights, or a small bird's nest. Fill your cloche with a small bouquet of faux or dried flowers in soft pastel hues. Roses, peonies, and hydrangeas are all excellent choices for creating a romantic and feminine look. Place a collection of miniature distressed furniture, such as a tiny chair or dresser, inside.



French Country

To decorate this charming piece, consider placing it on a distressed wooden tray and filling it with a collection of vintage-inspired items such as old books, dried flowers, and antique trinkets. The elegant glass dome allows you to create a stunning focal point while protecting your items from dust and damage. This classic piece is ideal for adding a touch of elegance to any room and will effortlessly complement your rustic aesthetic. Vintage-inspired accents such as antique keys, small bird figurines, or delicate porcelain objects can also enhance the French Country theme.


No matter what theme you choose to go with, arrange your chosen items inside the cloche in a visually appealing manner. Play with different heights, textures, and colors to create a dynamic and eye-catching display. Consider adding a small tray or pedestal inside the cloche to elevate the items and create depth.
