Martini Glass: Shopaholic - 1077-B-0007

Decorating your home is never an easy feat, made even more difficult with all the great styles of decor and furniture designs available these days. It seems once you've found a great sofa set, it's nearly impossible to then find a dining set and bedroom set and china set and the countless other home accessories that will all match each other perfectly. Sometimes, it's enough to make you wanna tear your hair out. An easy solution? How about finding home decor and furniture that are all the same color? Or more accurately, lack of color. Clear accessories for the home, as well as clear furniture and other home accents, are popping up all over the place. Not only will they surely match perfectly with all the other color-less pieces, but the see-thru aesthetic gives the home an ultra modern and futuristic feel. With everything from kitchenware to larger household items available in clear materials, it's easy to give your home a cohesive look and unique style. Plus, cleaning is a snap when you don't have to bust out the heavy vacuum cleaner or steamer and just need a box of Clorox wipes. The only downside? Since these super cool home accents are see-thru, no more stuffing the dirty laundry and other little messes behind the furniture when guests come over!

Christmas and Hanukkah may have come and gone and I hope you're not out returning gifts because it's time to prepare for your New Year's Eve celebration! If you're hosting a shindig at your house to watch the countdown for the ball drop or you're lucky enough to have a patio to see the fireworks, then your home has to match the festivities outside. Of course,you wouldn't want to buy things you can only use once a year so the trick is to pick certain colors or finishes that evoke the feeling of New Year's Eve. I've chosen some classic glass pieces as well as silver which can work all year round. I really like these shiny silver pillows that remind me of Andy Warhol's Silver Clouds Installation. For a glass item, check out the Stelton Set Of Six Glass Coasters to protect all of your wood furniture. Check out my slideshow to see more!
