You know me… I’m always on the prowl looking for some new “old” items to collect. If you follow me on Instagram– you may have seen me share the picture of my latest finds of vintage decanters. I simply love the various styles, shapes and colors they were produced in. When I ran across these two plum tone decanters I knew I had to have them (not to mention at $15.00 for both – I’d be a fool to have left them)
Of course I had no idea as to where I was going to showcase them in my home, but I found a happy place for them nestled in with the green jungle.
Their shape has a bit of a Moroccan flair and felt they’d blend perfectly with Grace. Now I’m sure you’ve seen these around, maybe at an aunt’s house or your grandmother’s home, tucked somewhere like in the bathroom, well they’ve made their way back into the decorator’s world and ready to be showcased.
Different designs and style, such as this Italian bubble glass decanter, adds color and texture to a room’s decor
Styled on the etagere you can see the pop of color. This style is known as the genie bottle
They add pops of color all around your space without costing a fortune.
