Message in a bottle
We all know that in the styling of kitchens many designers go to designer glass water bottles in order to add a pop of color and give the room a lived in feel.
The usual suspects are normally:
Perrier, San Pellegrino and Acqua Panna
There is nothing wrong with using these, but to me it’s a bit BORING! There are so many other choices you can go with so why settle with what everyone else is using.
Below are some picks that I think would add a bit more fun and really add a punch of color!
My favorite go-to summer drink that I’m constantly bringing to BBQs and getting people hooked on is:
My favorite has to be blood orange, but throughout the summer months I’m stocked with lemonade, blood orange and pomegranate. I leave them on my kitchen island and even display them empty once I’m finished.
Staying with sparkling lemonades another favorite has to be:
I’m loving those last two bottles in the shades of pink!
On my recent trip the local Mexican restaurant I fell in love with all of their soda choices. Talk about a pop of color with Jarritos and they had a variety of flavors including watermelon, lime and guava. No need to pick them at a restaurant just cruise the International food aisle at your local supermarket.
If you are a Dallas local you can even make a stop at The Soda Gallery at choose from 200 colas from around the world!

Even staples from your bar can make for interesting display pieces in your kitchen or dining area.
I really love all the thought that goes into packaging from the shapes of the bottles, the fonts, the labels and color combos. They all look like mini works of art and for only a couple of bucks a bottle you can give your kitchen a mini-facelift by adding a couple of them and as an added bonus you get to drink them as well!
Do you have a favorite bottle that I didn’t list? Please share!
