Glass Vignettes

A few years ago, I went to High Point Market and picked up a beautiful vintage seltzer bottle like these.

I combined it with some vintage apothecary bottles and it created a beautiful, little vignette in our living room.  

These apothecary bottles are perfect on their own or to house some simple buds for an additional splash of color.  {Via Houzz}

I was flipping through one of the shelter mags today and came across these stunning glass bottles by manufacturer Vetro Vero.  

Apparently the designers were inspired by vintage apothecary bottles, but changed the scale and the colors. I'm loving these rich, saturated colors!  {Via Vetro Vero}

Colored glass bottles are a lovely way to add color to your space, without adding a lot of visual weight.

Etsy and eBay are great ways to source vintage apothecary, seltzer, and mid-century modern glass bottles to create your own unique, vignette.

There are also plenty of vendors out there that offer some present-day, spectacular glass pieces.
