Colorful tinted drinking glasses are one of those everyday luxuries that has a surprising amount of smile power. I recently inherited a set of whisper-pink-tinted tumblers from my great-aunt, and I can’t help but grin every time I grab one from the cupboard. Something about glass, plus color, plus light happens to have this effect, and I love the way it makes even the most mundane morning coffee or mid-day glass of water into a special occasion.

For this reason (and more), I’ve since deemed colorful glassware a kitchen must-have. While you can certainly hunt through flea markets to score some legit vintage pieces (Depression glass is the expensive stuff), there are also a ton of styles on the market right now thanks to this glassware’s trendy appeal. Below, we’re rounding up 10 fresh picks that will bring a bit of color — and a whole lot of happy — to your space.
