Decorating with Coloured Bottles

Coloured bottles can make great home decor and will fit in with most decoration styles. What’s more they are budget priced products that add colour and ambiance without busting your bank balance.

Coloured glass bottles on a side table, a shelf or a window sill, can create immediate impact and blend well with many other ornaments particularly photo frames.

I like to collect old and unique shaped bottles. Often you can get them at second hand stores or garage sales. The light coming through a window can often cast interesting reflections around a room coming of a glass bottle.

See pictured the range of unusual shaped Glass bottles offered by Coastal Designs Decor (online Wholesaler who also sells direct to the public) have been decorated with shells and string. They do look great with the real shells glued on to the cork bottle stoppers or hanging from the bottles with string.

They have a few shades or blue that look good together as well as a range of other interesting colours and shapes. I particularly like the small bottle with the fake coral, that brings images of a message in a bottle from across the ocean.

You can buy these bottles and other coastal theme home decor from Coastal Designs Decor’s online shop.
