If you're drawn to a more minimalist aesthetic in your interiors, that doesn't mean bare walls and empty surfaces are your only route. Rather, try incorporating a handful of well-chosen pieces that speak to your personality without dominating it. The fewer pieces you have, the more special they can become.
It makes total sense that 'outline vases' – two-dimensional-looking wire frames designed to hold stems of dried flowers – are the minimalist's go-to for adding a touch of character to an otherwise clutter-free corner. A bold, geometric reinterpretation of the vase, they are a way to bring the softness of dried flowers into your home. They can blend into a neutral palette or stand out as an almost cartoonish drawing of a vase.
For those who find the black outline a bit too much, there are also ceramic versions (sometimes called donut vases) which come in softer, more autumnal colours but maintain the unexpected vase outline.

Europe's Airbus raised full-year financial targets after a narrower-than-expected dip in third-quarter profits, and stuck to a goal of delivering 600 jetliners this year after driving down costs during the pandemic. Airbus delayed some planned production increases after a week in which several aerospace firms warned of supply shortages but rounded up its main A320-family narrowbody production target to 65 a month by summer 2023, slightly later than planned. In May, Airbus said it was calling on suppliers to secure a firm rate of 64 a month by second-quarter 2023.
Central bank policymakers buffeted currency trading on Thursday as the Australian dollar held firm on growing speculation about the Reserve Bank of Australia's tightening plans, while the yen steadied as the Bank of Japan kept policy steady as expected. Next on the agenda is the European Central Bank's rates review later in the global day, with investors looking to clues on how it plans navigate accelerating global inflation. The Australian dollar was at $0.7504, near its three month top as Australian bond yields surged to their highest since mid 2019 after the central bank declined to buy a government bond at the heart of its stimulus programme, even though yields were well above its target of 0.1%.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Light from a high afternoon sun slanted through the tall windows of the weathered wooden church, catching on the plank floorboards and illuminating the stained glass. Outside, the arid ground of the northern New Mexico foothills stretched for miles — a picturesque setting for an Old West gun battle. The actor Alec Baldwin, haggard in a white beard and period garb as he played a wounded character named Harlan Rust, sat in a pew, working out how he would draw a long-barreled
On Wednesday’s Wheel of Fortune, the classic game show was testing the limits of spooky season when one of the puzzles under the Movie Quote category had viewers Tweeting things like, “DON’T SAY HIS NAME!” Once it was clear that the puzzle was the same word listed four times in a row, it was the contestant named Jordan who was able to figure it out. The correct answer, “CANDYMAN CANDYMAN CANDYMAN CANDYMAN,” is a reference to the horror film franchise dating back to 1992 with a total of four films. The most recent sequel, Candyman, was released in September of this year and was co-written by Jordan Peele. In the films, the deadly spirit is summoned when a person says the name Candyman five times into a mirror. And while potentially summoning a deadly spirit was met with applause on the show, viewers at home were feeling a little bit differently. And they took to Twitter with their thoughts and fears.
