5 Ideas for decorating with recycled glass jugs and vases


Hello dear readers of 30smagazine! My name is Magda and I am creator and author of nice&nicer blog, where I post about interior and design inspirations. Today I have the pleasure to be a guest writer for Louise and I am very happy about this opportunity!

Have it ever happened to you that you liked a certain home accessory or decor from the moment you saw it in a shop or in a picture? Have you ever laid your eyes on something and started thinking instantaneously where it would fit in your home and you just wanted to buy it right away and not a second later? Well, I have to admit that I experienced this love at the first sight- feeling not too long ago, while I was shopping in Hanover (read here). The object of my desire is a beautiful recycled glass jug in this very hot emerald hue. Although that day I did not buy the vase, I just know I am going to do it next time I see something similar – no doubt about it! It does not have to be in emerald; in fact, I love recycled glass jugs in every color and shape! [continue reading after picture]

In the meantime, I have been collecting inspirations for decorating with these beautiful pieces. I really love that the vases are so versatile and can be used in so many ways. They look fantastic both as traditional flower vases as well as…lamp pendants! I also like the idea of using recycled glass jugs as table lamp stands. To build such a lamp would be definitely a fun DIY, don’t you think? Truly, no two bottles are alike and they are so eye catching when grouped. Even a single jug holding one branch can make a huge visual impact when placed on a table as centerpiece. Take a look at the little mood boards I created – I think you cannot go wrong with this timeless accessory! [continue reading after pictures]

Do you decorate your home with recycled glass jugs and vases? I remember Louise used one oversize recycled blue vase when decorating for fall as a vase but she and I would love to hear more of your ideas and inspirations!
