Displaying Colored Glass


I've seen several interior decorators display their
colored glass in a rainbow pattern lately.
It's very effective in drawing your attention to the
color groups so I thought I'd give it a try while I 
 dusted and cleaned inside my display cabinets.




It's not a strict ROYGBIV, so it might drive the scientific minded
a little crazy.  But for us artistic souls, it's just fine.
Besides, I didn't have any orange or purple. haha.

  4. They look so pretty.
    I prefer the colors grouped alike rather than higgeldy piggeldy.
    That cabinet is a beautiful display case.

  11. Beautiful display, Betsy.
    Once I get all my glass out of storage I might try this. The problem is the étagere wasn't big enough for all that I have. I either have to edit (eek) or have a larger display area. Or maybe rotate them out. I love my glass and don't really want to part with any of it. We'll see. I am trying to only live with what I love. My new motto!

    1. I'm sure you'll figure something out. Maybe just fill it with the best colors and see how it looks. Then store the rest or see if you can scale it down. Hard to do, I know. If you do the rainbow, I want to see it! You also can add more and have them all touching...not so set apart like mine are!

  14. How absolutely beautiful! It's like standing inside the most elegant huge kaleidoscope there is, just taking in all the prisms and shifts of colour in the light. I'd just stand and look my eyes full several times a day.

    I'm smiling at the exquisite loveliness and elegant shine of the glass. Simply perfect.
