We’ve been visiting Newport, Rhode Island for years. It’s one of our very favorite places to be, where we can relax, unwind, and of course, eat good food. And for just as many years that we have been visiting here, I’ve become more and more obsessed with round windows. So many homes have a round window or two designed in their architecture, and I love it. I mean, I love it so much that I can just stand in the street and stare at a round window for hours, and I don’t know if that is intriguing or just plain weird.
Most likely the latter, but just the same, the more round windows I see on homes and the special spots in which they’re designed to live, whether it’s near the roof or just as a living room window, I’m all in. I want to figure out a way to incorporate a round window in our old farmhouse.
But I vacillate with ascetics – I would be taking away the history of our old architecture, even with just one window. And too, I’m not totally sold on the fact that a round window would fit in, on an 1820 home. Maybe I’m being too dramatic. Regardless, I’m so into these said round windows, and I almost feel now, I’m on a mission.
So, maybe I should bring a round window inside? Think differently. Perhaps on a door going into our kitchen?
Or, turning this mirror into a display window?
Ooorrrrr, maybe even incorporating a round window in to my much-wanted-in-the-design-process garden house.
I’m going to keep toying with the idea, because in my little corner of the world, a round window is just waiting to be installed. Somewhere.
