Roulette multi colour round mosaic mirror

Stunning mosaic mirror

Jazz It Up Interiors have a great range of funky mirrors available, including many made of colourful mosaic designs. One lovely example is this round Roulette mirror, which features stripes of multicoloured glass mosaic around the outside of it.

The art glass mirror is handmade on a dark solid wood frame and would act as a stunning focal point on a wall.

The mosaic mirror is available in a choice of three sizes, with an 80cm round mirror starting at £340.

As well as this design, we also really like the look of the contemporary Eclipse round mosaic mirror and the sculptural mosaic glass wall art, which is beautiful.

Vintage recycled milk bottle vases by Who's? Glass Lars Persson glassmaker bird vaseAbsolut vodka glass jugUpcycled glassware from Lars Persson

Would you believe that the green glass bird vase above started off life as a Perrier bottle? It’s true and all of the items shown have been upcycled from discarded glassware.

North Devon-based glass company, Who’s? Glass, specialise in transforming domestic glass waste into contemporary products. All the bottles they use are collected locally and are heated and shaped by hand. They’re a great example of effective homeware upcycling and produce some innovative products.

If you’re fond of retro pieces, then the 1970s milk bottle vases will raise a smile (£24.95). The delightfully quirky Perry Perrier water bird vase is fantastic and a limited edition of only 100, all of which are unique and individual (£19.95 each).

If vodka is your favourite tipple, then the cocktail pitcher or jug made from an old Abolut vodka bottle is a must (£24.95). Gin drinkers are catered for too, with the slimline Gordon’s Gin vase or straw holder (£22.50).

All of these creative glassware creations are made by Who’s? Glass and can be purchased from their online store.
