Deck the Halls

When glass is made into festive decorations and candle holders and the light reflects off its surface, the shades created are magical. I love to decorate my tree and mantlepiece with glass items as they have a beautiful way of looking different at different times of the day and, above all, they tend to be adaptable each year when colour schemes change.

Happy Friday!

Iced

In true British fashion, when we experience weather (good or bad) we tend to have an opinion on it! As we’re now experiencing a summer, I have been craving a lot of cold drinks and I have been adding rose petals to my ice cube trays before freezing to create beautiful looking cubes of loveliness! It is simple to do and is the perfect way of cheering up your glass.

Happy Wednesday!

Encased

I believe that beauty should be preserved, and with this in mind, I adore the idea of encasing special items within glass bell jars. The jars are delicate and beautiful in their structure, but when they are storing treasures they’re magical.

A bell jar is the perfect accessory to your sideboards and dressing tables…you could grace them with cacti, candles, your favourite perfume and flowers, what ever takes your fancy!

Happy Monday!

Up Close

I always find that when you take time out to inspect something close up, that even the most everyday of items can hold inspiration. This week I have found myself studying images that I have found and paying attention to not what is just at the forefront of the images, but the detailing surrounding it….

Happy Friday!

Underground

So, many of you may be asking yourself what is so interesting about the underground service…well, this! These simply stunning images are from the underground system in Moscow, Russia. This form of transport is dubbed ‘the people’s palaces’ with, what can only be described, as the most ornate mode of getting around in the world! If you’re lucky enough to ever travel the underground, you’ll be met by shining examples of Soviet art and style, including bronze sculptures, chandeliers, Florentine mosaics and stained glass.

Truly breathtaking, I’m sure you’ll agree….

Pedal Stool

This has got to be the cutest christmas inspiration I’ve seen yet. Put your festive figurines up there with your silver tray by encasing them within glass cake stands and vintage bell jars…utter perfection, in my humble opinion!

Will you be putting your deer on a pedal stool?

Jazz Up

It’s December! As it’s officially now the month to get festive (and not feel bad about doing so!), I thought I’d start the week with a little festive inspiration for your homes.

Whether you love to go overboard or keep things subtle, Christmas is the perfect time to ‘jazz up’ your home…

It’s Happening

I know, it’s perhaps a little too early but let’s not fight it any longer…it’s time for a little Christmas inspiration!

If you’re looking for a lovely way of decorating your side table or just filling a vase with something visually beautiful, then look no further than this! You can collect the branches on a weekend walk and then decorate the branches with stunning glass baubles.

I must admit, I love the pastel colour scheme. Yum.

Crystal Light

I spent a lovely afternoon on Saturday under an ornate ceiling which was adorned with beautiful crystal chandeliers. Swoon.

I wrote this post a few months ago that gained inspiration from decorated ceilings and thought that now would be the perfect opportunity to put together a chandelier┬ápost to kick off the week with…

Glass Update

If you’re looking to update a few items of your furniture or just want to add a little more to your home, then look no further than add a touch of luxury with glass door knobs. They are easily attached and can be bought online from your local hardware shop and look beautiful on what they adorn…you can mix it up and use them as curtain tie-backs or hooks, too.
