Mercury glass has been hot since last year, but it is still going strong and I love it!! It has a mirrored effect so it creates a beautiful reflective surface in your home. Mercury glass originated in the 1800s because mercury is what mirrors used to be make of…. now is used as a decorative art glass. I love it year round, but it also is incredibly festive during the holiday months.
Here are some fun examples of contemporary mercury glass in action.
Adding a little sparkle to this simple Pottery Barn room.
I looks great in lamps as seen in this bedroom…
…and in this living room.
As vases with my favorite flower: hydrangeas.
A little sparkle on a coffee table.
I gives a festive feel for the holidays. Starting with Halloween/Thanksgiving… this is a nice look for someone who wants a little more classy approach to Halloween.
Fall colored flowers.
Dresses up your holiday dinner tables…
Or above your table.
Last year I did a class as well as a segment on Studio 5 about mixing sparkle with nature for a truly glamorous look for Christmas.
Mercury glass is a great way to do this…
Little pops of cranberry with greens give a timeless look.
I think this look is a lot of fun.
Just a few…
Good for wedding decor too.
As you can see it’s very versatile.
