It’s hard to beat the effect sunlight has on glass in general, but with colored glass, it’s like an electric rainbow. Collect various colorful glass dishware and hang them in racks in front of a window. It’s a functionally sophisticated display: Your dishware will be right where you need it, and in the meantime, they’ll create an artful exhibit.
Tall and skinny glass pieces are perfect for narrow nooks like this one. Clear glass would have been lost against the white walls; the colored glass pulls in the fabric from the couches and connects the room as a whole.
Who said kitchen shelves are only for dishware? I love how this glass display not only brings out the blue and green from the kitchen, but adds a chic and unexpected visual surprise.
Add flair to a neutral bathroom with a display shelf decorated with a colorful glass piece. If your wall doesn’t already have an inset nook, place one on a small table, on the floor or hang a glass fixture from the ceiling.
With colorful glass pieces, you can pay homage to “less is more.” They make more of a statement than clear glass pieces, so you can a create a nice balance and enticing visual effect from just a few thoughtfully placed about a display case.
When you find colorful glass pieces that also feature stunning design, it’s nearly impossible to go wrong. These bring a structural element to the coffee table without feeling overbearing.
Decorate the bare surface of a chest with orange and yellow glass pieces for a hint of indoor citrus.
Create a showstopper by collecting glass pieces in the same color and displaying them together, preferably backlit to enhance their translucent beauty.
Instead of hanging art on shelves or mantles above the fireplace, consider filling the space with colorful glass jars. This subtle display is the perfect complement to this simplistic space, and just the right amount of color.
Create a simplistic yet elegant centerpiece for your dining table with minimal pieces in expressive shades. There is something about the juxtaposition of these delicate pieces against the concrete walls that really sets this room on fire.
Enhance your current artwork and accessories by placing complementary glass pieces in their vicinity. The glass objects in this dining area pull out the colors from this beautiful painting.
Sometimes all you need for a hint of sophistication is a blue demijohn on your ottoman, and voila, room is complete.
I love the Jewel Tone Jar Collection by Elizabeth Lyons; spread them throughout your house or mix and match then altogether.
