Hello and welcome to Windows and Beyond’s first blog post of 2012! I will be sharing my inspirations and window makeovers with you twice a month. I hope you enjoy and feel motivated to beautify your own living space.
detail purple glass  smFor this first makeover I want to share with you, I found inspiration in the client’s love of purple. She desired a softer, more romantic look, so we played around with design to achieve this goal. After pouring over several catalogs, we found this gorgeous hand blown glass and instantly fell in love. This would become our focal point.
