I See The Light….From The Windows!

windows in a sunroomI love the windows in my home….  I love windows in all buildings, whether they’re little porthole shape of floor-to-ceiling type; I think of all of them as a welcome to what’s outside and what’s out there in the world….

The word “window” comes from an old Norse word “vindaugh”, where “vindr” meant wind and “auga” meant eye.  Hence, wind-eye and in time; the word “window” evolved for varying reasons…..

The earliest windows were just holes in walls that were either covered with animal hide or cloth.  In time, windows evolved and became more of a protection from the elements as well as still letting the light in.  The Romans were the first to use glass for windows and about the same time in “window history”; China, Korea and Japan started using paper (shoji screens) as material for windows.

Today, windows are a huge part of how we decorate our homes and offices.  They are now also used as viewpoints, things to look OUT of for thought time, inspiration or just to watch what’s outside…

I’ve collected a few window pictures from Pinterest to share with you and I hope you enjoy letting the light in…..
