A window is a portal to the outside world; allowing your thoughts to roam freely.
When Elements I Love began the renovation on the store (read more here) it was our focus to incorporate as many salvaged and second-hand pieces to the space. From the striking to the small and pretty... like this hand-painted early Victorian (1890's) casement window. The leadlight has a few breaks but once the sun catches the delicate blossom you would never know.
Not all pieces have to perfect – fragments of windows and small quirky finds can add simple charm to an interior or a studio. The mottled and coloured glass with names like English Muffle, Cathedral and Kosciusko are part of the charm of old windows. They soften the light and they have a somewhat magical quality ... but maybe that's just living in Byron :)
