Glass décor is a great way to add beauty and interest to an entire room.  Use it for inspiration.  Glass décor comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes, patterns, and colors.

One glass item can stand alone and become a focal point in a room or you can choose to collect a few items.  You can choose to have them all be different or find pieces with a similar theme.  For example, look for glass  décor pieces with the same shape, but in varying sizes.  Find pieces from the same era.  Vintage glass vases or bowls will perk up a room in no time.

Handblown glass look like one of a kind art in a room.  Allow the glass to inspire you and the room design.  The colorful glasses in the image above would be a great, colorful accents on a dining table for a special occasion.  Don’t forget that these glasses like these can be used to decorate a room as well.   Placing them behind a glass cabinet or using them as candle holders creates a colorful and interesting atmosphere.

Use the glass accents to decorate a shelf, create a cohesive vignette, bring sparkle to a room, or dress up the mantle.  Whatever you decide to decorate, keep in mind that all of your home décor should reflect your style and be pieces you truly enjoy
