Have you lived in your home for a while and gotten bored of the same old interiors? Do you want to make a room look brighter? Are you looking to bring something new and fresh in for Spring? Handcrafted and beautiful Murano Glassware offers the perfect way to add an interesting accent to your home, bringing a touch of bright color and artistic design. For many centuries the best Murano Glass artisans on the island of Murano in Venice, Italy created stunning pieces for the residences of the rich and famous. Now you too can follow their example and decorate your home in a truly unique way. Here are five ways to spruce up your home with Murano Glass.

1. Hang a Murano Glass chandelier.

A Murano Glass chandelier is the one piece you can get that will make the grandest impression by instantly transforming any space in your home into a stylish oasis of European elegance. Since the 16th century, palaces in Venice have featured elaborate chandeliers with several tiers of handmade decorative elements blown one-at-a-time in the furnaces of Murano island and then carefully assembled together by master glassmakers to impress the owners and guests alike. The tradition has only grown stronger in modern times and spread far beyond Venice. The range of current Murano chandeliers runs the gamut from smaller modern pieces with streamlined decor all the way to the opulent multi-tier fixtures with many decorative elements like in the centuries past. You can find the right authentic Venetian chandeliers or sconces in just the color and style you need to light up your hallway, living room, bedroom, or any other room of your home.

2. Transform your space with a Murano Glass vase or sculpture.

Vases and sculptures crafted by Venetian artisans are a quick and easy way to add an impressive designer accent no matter the style of your home. There is a wide range of Venetian sculptures and figurines to help you remember special moments, symbolize love and affection, or bring your favorite animals, sea creatures, or birds to life. For a modern home with muted colors, you can put up a bold abstract sculpture on a coffee table or a console table. For a traditional-style home a Murano Glass Millefiori vase in a color that complements the wall and floor shades would be a great choice to put on a mantle or a shelf. Murano vases are not just decorative but also functional and can be used on a dining table or in the kitchen to hold fresh flowers.

3. Use Murano Glass drinkware or serving pieces on your table

A sure way to impress your guests and bring your home ambiance up a notch is to use unique and classy drinking glasses, wine glasses or serving pieces when you host a special gathering. Every table will benefit from colorful Murano Glass tumblers for water, soft drinks, or scotch, sophisticated wine goblets, or unique tableware options like salad spoons, cake servers, butter spreaders and more. Make sure to hand wash your Murano tableware, dry it with a soft cloth, and keep it in china cabinets from J&K when not in use, and it’ll serve you well for years without fading or losing its luster.

4. Small designer accessories make a big difference

Don’t feel like splurging on a large vase or sculpture to freshen up your home? Not a problem – you can add a small accent like a bright photo frame on your desk with the help of a photo editor or a beautiful jewelry tray on your night stand and immediately see the change in your mood that these Murano Glass accessories will bring about. Even a small Murano Glass piece creates a splash of color and a memento of beautiful Venice, creating a sunnier, happier atmosphere, especially in the midst of the dreary fall or winter season.

5. Create magical ambiance on winter holidays and beyond

Whether you put up a Christmas Tree, celebrate Hanukkah, or just want to feel the cheer during the winter holiday season, there are many pieces created by Murano Glass masters to help you celebrate with old-world holiday accents. For Christmas there is a wide array of precious Murano ornaments that bring back childhood memories of good cheer and family warmth. They often become favorite holiday decorations and get passed down through generations as special heirloom pieces. The best part is that beyond hanging these fine ornaments on your Christmas tree to admire for only a few days each year, you can display them all year long on special stands and remember the joys of the holidays every time you glance at your Murano Glass Christmas ornament. There are also unique menorahs and Judaica gifts for Hanukkah, reminding you of the rich history of the Jewish people in Venice.

If you ever feel bored of your interiors and want to change something in your home remember that you don’t need to do a major renovation, rearrange furniture, or repaint your walls. Instead, you can add an authentic Murano Glass piece to any space in your home to make it appear brighter, more stylish, and more attractive. Handmade, sophisticated and truly unique, such pieces are an excellent home decorating option with a multitude of pieces in every color, style, and design available for purchase both in specialized galleries and online. The range of authentic Murano Glass artworks is truly stunning, limited only by the imagination of the artists and artisans. Whether you choose to add a large piece like a chandelier or a small accent like a photo frame, you can be sure that your home will take on a new quality of European elegance and chic.
