There’s so much to shop in the current summer sales.

We found and fell for these gorgeous martini glasses from John Lewis.

Mix and match with other gorgeous glassware also from their summer sale.

This set of two is half price at just £10.

Key trend of the season, jewel tones are staying around. An easy and beautiful way to introduce these tones of colour to any room, is with glassware.

Glasses, vases, plates, dishes, bowls, jars – when in beautiful jewel tones, are pieces of art – homeware meant to be on show, displayed, and a great way to bring colour to an interior.

It’s a colour palette that seems to be being embraced across the high street and therefore at a range of prices.

Our favourite idea is to create rich, colourful table settings by combining glassware, plates and vases of different tones. Add highlights of copper or gold (cutlery, candelabras or napkin rings) to finish the look perfectly.

For creating a beautiful unique dining table or alternatively to be hung as art on the walls. There’s a huge array of decorative plates to choose from – patterns, styles, colours, designs, and illustrations galore.

This can create such a special look for dining. Layer up plates of design and colour to compliment napkins and clothes to create a table that almost tells a story.

For a wall display, go eclectic with a clash of patterns and designs. Or for a more minimal look mix the odd detailed design or illustration with plain colours and block patterns – this in all monochrome would be a perfect look.
