Just posted the first episode of my new At Home with Jackie Podcast, focusing on the Heart of Real Estate. All things warm and fuzzy about homes, home life and real estate! Enjoy!
I love telling the true story of how one of my clients found and purchased their dream home. It may sound a little ordinary on the surface, but this story is a little out of the ordinary.
Don’t worry…it has a Happy Ending!
Garden Windows can sometimes look dated or they may look out toward something unattractive. Or they may light and modern and allow you to enjoy a gorgeous garden! Either way, I love how glass objects bring sparkle and light to these types of windows.
I had a listing that had a big garden window that looked out to a wonderful pool, but it also exposed how close the neighboring home was and how exposed the bathers may be. I didn’t want the eye to go straight to the neighbor’s home, so I filled the west-facing window with colors of the rainbow to attract the eye. It worked!
I also employed this technique in my own garden window at home. i have a nice garden, and I don’t want to fill the window with opaque things that block my view. So I chose various pieces of glass and glass vases to sparsely fill the void. The sun sparkles through the glass in a most beautiful way.
In a dining room with ample light from the patio, I used art glass placed in front of a gorgeous round mirror to reflect other beautiful pieces already in the room. The effect exceeded my expectations!
