Sometimes, when considering design, I find it’s really fun to think about materials on their basest of levels. I tend to become enamored by materials as a theme, in general…since it ultimately affects their overall appearance in form. Here are a few of my latest inspirations for decor via glass. It has to be my all time favorite. In my book, when polished off with that glimmer, everything looks better.
gotta love some empire vintage
Oh to have a cupboard stock piled full! I’m still in the process of collecting vintage plates. (read: I don’t own many and need to get to it) It will take years..but it’s a life long collection of sorts….
I may scoop these up if someone else doesn’t…
call me uber girly, but there’s just something irresistible about this
okay. one more.
But enough with the china already…I could play with that for days…months…a year…
There are so many things you can do with the simple.
The good news: there’s millions of these suckas available…and they would make an incredible summertime table center with a little industrious and some backyard flowers.
Oh and the random glass bottles you can collect from near and far…even in photos captured their lustre and glimmer are completely irresistible.
One day, I shall have an entire house full of doors with random knobs. It will be my stay in house, because I don’t want to leave them behind. Maybe I should start grabbing those up now, as well. yes. probably.
I think its the approach of old things used in new ways, that capture my imagination the most.
These are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.
I’m making this in the future for my kitchen table. In my next house…I think this is incredible. I have to fine tune with electrical wiring in my head…(read: get Jamin to figure it out) I’m officially obsessed.
In other news, this has nothing to do with decor. But its made from recycled glass and I think it quite lovely.
I would like to do something like this for christmas this year, and then use them year round. There’s something fascinating about the fact that these were actually used in the water. Awesomeness.
These are always beautiful.
this is what I really wanted to do in that pointless (for me) hs chemistry class. I’m not kidding. I always resisted the urge to play and arrange them prettily when we were supposed to be getting our bunson burners on.
Nothing new. Quite simple and basic. But a reminder to me, that things collected from the past, in the simplest of ways, are sometimes best.
