Decorate With a Rainbow of Glass

It is easy to instantly presume glass and think”clear,” but don’t neglect the vibrant glass pieces which can bring instant beauty to any area in your property. When it’s hand-blown artwork or a simple colorful jar, coloured glass keeps the simplicity of the material whilst still adding an incomparable luster. Have some empty crannies and nooks to fill? Or maybe a dining table that’s looking a tiny barren? Consider scooping up some colorful glass to fill the void. Check out these photographs for some inspiration to get you started.

It is difficult to beat the effect sun has on glass in general, but with coloured glass, it is similar to an electric rainbow. Collect various colorful glass dishware and hang them in front of a window. It is a sophisticated display: Your dishware will probably be right where you want it, and meanwhile, they’ll make an artful exhibit.

Tall and lanky glass pieces are perfect for narrow nooks such as this one. Clear glass would have been lost against the white walls; the coloured glass pulls in the fabric from the sofas and connects the space as a whole.

Who explained kitchen shelves are just for dishware? I love this glass display not only brings out the green and blue from the kitchen, but adds a chic and unexpected visual shock.

Add flair into a neutral Designer Bathroom Concepts Pittsburgh with a display shelf decorated with a vibrant glass bit. If your wall does not already have an inset corner, put one on a little table, on the floor or hang a glass fixture in the ceiling.

With vibrant glass pieces, you are able to pay homage to”less is more” They make more of a statement than clear glass pieces, so you can a create a wonderful balance and enticing visual effect from just a few strategically positioned about a screen case.

When you locate colorful glass pieces which also feature stunning layout, it is nearly impossible to go wrong. These bring a structural component to the coffee table without feeling overbearing.
