Good evening from us here at Coriander Stained Glass.  We’ve a few projects keeping us busy and we’d like to share some of them with you today.

Often when people are choosing a stained glass window for their home they choose one that is either in keeping with the age of the house, or sympathetic to the style of other windows in the street in which they live.

The following three windows were all completed in Clapham.  They all incorporate the same Victorian geometric design, all in slightly different colour schemes.

For the first job, you can see the before and after with the completed stained glass window, and what a huge transformation it has made to this entrance way.

The subtle differences in colour scheme are personal touches added by each home owner, but the defining features of these Victorian pieces are the ruby red borders, geometric shapes and pastel shades.

1930’s stained glass took some of it’s basic design elements and shapes from Edwardian Stained Glass and you can see that here in the above project.  With textured, clear glass for the background and a pale border, the central features of this piece are natural, flowing, soft shapes.

Also typical of this era is the picture window, which can be very ornate and include painted details.  Our in house artist, Margaret, can re create your favourite painting or picture and incorporate it into a piece of stained glass for your home.  For examples, take a look at the painted glass designs portfolio page.

That’s it from us today but we’ll be back later in the week with more projects.  Take a look at our stained glass portfolio page if you’re looking for some inspiration, or you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter to keep up to date with our latest news.
