Summer inspiration: coloured glass

When the sun is shining, there is no prettier way to brighten up a room than with coloured glass. I used to have an irrational dislike of it, thinking it looked tacky and a bit like cheap plastic picnic-ware, but placed carefully, an old blue bottle or cluster of bright vases can shine just as brightly as a stained glass window.

I woke up today determined to find the perfect coloured bottles for my new and empty bookshelves – ideally with a vintage apothecary feel and cork stopper.
