Basement windows are a great location for stained glass. The functional aspect of textured glass makes it ideal for obscuring the view, from both outside and in, and a well designed stained glass window also add visual beauty. This recently renovated basement is in the same house where I delivered the window which I blogged about on March 17. While that stained glass window looks out over a beautiful lake, this window, in the front of the house, looks out on the driveway. Unlike with the other window, when designing this one, the focus wasn't on preserving a lovely view. Instead I worked with the homeowner to design something with rich colors, bold lines, and lots of texture. He wanted a strong geometric feel so we went with a herringbone design in the middle and some repeated patterns on either side. This photograph, taken by David Glasofer of Image Up Studios, shows it on a bright, sunny day. In the near future, there will be lighting behind the stained glass which can be turned on at night to cast a lovely glow into the room. I love how each window highlights this homeowner's individual style and brings a bit of artistic focus to the design of each room.
