My Mom gifted me with vintage 1960’s and 1970’s colored glasses a few months ago. Originally belonging to my maternal Grandmother, they provide a delightful visual pleasure, similar to a gorgeous rainbow or the discovery of a splendid piece of sea glass.
I’ve taken it upon myself to add to my Grandmother’s collection, hitting up the Brooklyn Flea on free weekends. Collecting different shapes, sizes and colors to create an eclectic set is easy, and I can’t say it enough: flat out pleasing. If you are a decor-lover, I encourage you to begin your own colored glass collection. Don’t put a limit on the glassware for vases come in all pops of color too.
Pair your collection by color-grouping or according to shape and size. I like what Mary McDonald did with her cabinet bar, as reported by House Beautiful.
