This post is now over a year old, so certain aspects of this post may no longer be correct or relevant.

Glass is a very versatile material that can be used for so many more projects than just windows. As well as providing light and space to any room it is the perfect product for modern interior design innovation. It has the power to change the character of a room, by using either clear or coloured glass design trends. The subtle, classic qualities of this material work perfectly in combination with other materials such as wood, brick, concrete and metal. Check out this blog from TSL for information on using glass in interior design.

We want this blog to inspire; and introduce you to new interesting ways of introducing colour for your interiors. Take a look at our top 5 favourite ideas.

A staircase is part of a house that isn't really given much thought within interior design, but in most homes it is the first feature you see when you walk through the door. Take advantage of this and use coloured glass to create patterns on each step for a contemporary unique look.
