Include glass. Glass fills up space without taking up much visual volume. It’s a great complement in shelving units where just a touch of something is needed to maintain balance, allowing this artwork to steal the show.
Designer Ammie Kim wanted to give this kitchen a modern look by creating a unique backsplash. The glass tiles in the backsplash alternate between glossy and etched, complementing the glossy stainless steel appliances and honey maple cabinets.
Go glam with glass - If you have a lot of attractive collectables to display, then open shelving will show them off to best effect. Glass shelves have a neutral quality, meaning they work in both traditional and modern schemes.
You want privacy when you shower, but want to let the light in when you’re doing your makeup. This adhesive film can be cut to fit any window, and when plugged in it makes the glass transparent or opaque, using an app as the remote control.
Colletti designed this open glass container for use on a coffee table. The moss on the left is Irish moss (Sagina subulata), a lush-looking groundcover with a fuzzy texture. The red center plant, Hypoestes, works as a focal point. Colletti loves baby tears (Helxine soleirolii, in the lower right corner of the container). It's growing next to a creeping fig (Ficus pumila) in the lower right corner. Sheet moss was used in the upper right corner. “The plants are the stars,” Colletti says, “so the top dressing is minimal; clean lines accent a home décor display.”
