Bottles can be both practical and decorative. Perhaps you save attractive bottles once they are empty, or perhaps you collect bottles made especially to be displayed. Either way, they are a nice decorative touch in a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living-room. When placed on a window sill, sunlight passes through them, creating beautiful colored patterns in the room and changing its entire atmosphere. Not bad for a simple glass container.
I like these – somehow there’s something retro about them:

Of course, decorative bottles can also be used to hold liquids. Some people like to keep their oils in such bottles.
