Through the Looking Glass

We're loving the glass pieces that have been coming in the store lately and think they're such a fun and easy way to add a little summer sparkle to your home at an affordable price.  From apothecary jars, to mason jars, updating your home decor with glass is no longer just a trend, but almost a must.  Glass is light, fresh, and clean, yet makes a bold statement.  Take a look at some of our favorite glass pieces currently featured at Chartreuse.

These beautiful hand-blown glass globes are replicas of the glass fishing floats that were once used around the world by fisherman to help keep their nets afloat.  Although no longer used in modern fishing times, these floats are now popular collector's items and add a great interest piece to any niche in your home.  We've even seen them used outdoors in the garden.  The rippled texture adds interest to each piece and the light aqua marine color is just perfect.

Have you been looking for a pretty alternative to the typical glass votive holder?  Look no further because these sweet little hand-blown class votive holders will do just nicely.  Their light and delicate nature look gorgeous when illuminated at night by a votive, but stand alone as a petite accent piece for your table during the day.  They could also be sweet bud vases, and at $19 a piece, make a perfect gift for a friend.

Our most recent delivery at Chartreuse brought these gorgeous and unique opalescent milky glass jars.  Ranging in diameter from 5.5" - 11", they look fantastic all bundled together as pictured, or as a simple accent pieces on their own.  Depending on how the light hits them, the glass changes from shades of white to shades of blue.  And the varying lips on each jar just add to the interest.  Ranging from $19-$39 a piece, these are another quick, easy, affordable and elegant way to update some of your summer decor.

Come in soon and take a look in person at all of our new and fresh accessories to update your home!
