If you have had a piece done by us and have not shared your experience, please do! We would love to hear from you!


Client Reviews

Sally B

“Thrilled with my transom and window treatments. They are beautiful and provide the privacy I was looking for as well. Such a pleasure working with you and I so appreciate the responsiveness, decorating advice, and workmanship.”

Natalie M

“I am thrilled with my new stained glass in my foyer & my sunroom. It was a pleasure working with Diane & her husband. The entire process was very professional & I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to put stained glass in their home.”

Pamela T

“We added stained and leaded glass panels to our foyer walls for a pop of color and sparkle to create a unique look of stained glass on interior walls. We added transom glass panels to our living and dining room windows to match the entry door. We could not be more pleased with the results. On time delivery, clean installation, and personable service was included with the artistic design result. Highly recommend Decorative Glass Solutions.”

Client Installs/ In Area Installs


Cheryl R

“This was no exception as to the quality you are more likely to receive when the Company owners are doing the work. We had two large Transoms and 3 small windows over our entry door transformed into a work of art.

We live quite a distance from Richmond, but Diane came to our home and helped me design the pieces. I was then sent templates for each piece and changed a few colors here and there.

They then traveled back to install.”


Kathy L

“We just had decorative windows installed in 2 of our bathrooms. Diane and her team were great! Highly recommend Decorative Glass Solutions. We are looking for more windows in our house for her to make beautiful!!”

“2020: We have a sunroom that faces straight west, so the sun shines in directly, often right into our eyes! We have shades on the windows, but the transoms are not covered. Diane suggested patterned glass panels added to the transoms might help to diffuse the incoming sunlight. This has been a wonderful solution! We still have light coming in, but the direct sunlight is scattered now and doesn’t blind us. I’m attaching a picture of one of the transoms that shows the patterning. Thanks, Diane, for another great idea!

2019: As part of the kitchen renovation, we got all new cabinets, including one top set that had clear glass panels. We decided to go back to Diane to have leaded glass inserts made and they turned out beautifully. Thanks again Diane!

2017: We did a major renovation project that included gutting the entire master bath and kitchen. The master bath redo meant removing the existing window and moving and enlarging the opening. We went to Diane Fairburn’s Decorative Glass Solutions because we wanted something very special, and she had

a beautiful leaded glass window already made up. The problem, though, was that it wasn’t large enough for the opening we had. The solution? She created two leaded glass side panels that mimicked the pattern in the main window. Problem solved and the final result is gorgeous! Thanks Diane!”

“Hi Diane –

the fireplace screen arrived safely – it’ is absolutely beautiful – far beyond what we imagined!! The colors, the design, the textures of the various pieces of glass – make for an impressive piece of art! The height and width are perfect for our fireplace opening – a welcome addition to our living room! Congratulations to you and your team!

And, by the way, the packaging was excellent!

Thanks again!”

“A very enjoyable process from design to installation. The pace and follow-through in each step was excellent and made for an almost effortless process- not always the norm with creative work. The finished windows were gorgeous, and a dramatic upgrade. Thank you!”

Installations You Can Do Yourself!

Hello Glass Fans!  Welcome to our August Newsletter.  This month we are focusing on the customers who have installed the work themselves OR had a contractor do the install. We either shipped the glass to them somewhere in the US OR they picked the panel up.

Poitras Lighthouse was installed by the owner.  He made a template for us and installed this beauty in his home on the river.

Traditional King was installed by the owner.  They had a sunroom added next to their kitchen and had a window space to add this beauty!

Traditional transom was installed by a customer’s son.  She was looking for privacy as she lived alone and did not feel secure.   He was very pleased with how we made the process very simple.

Traditional wide border was installed by the contractor of a customer. This privacy glass panel was installed on an interior door to a bedroom.

Bird Heron Ross was installed by the owner.  It was a surprise for his wife, he saw this design on our website and ordered it for her birthday. WOW what a surprise that was!

Please send us pictures and measurements of the glass portion of your window or door glass and we will be happy to send options and estimates.

Thank You,

Diane Fairburn, Design Director

August 2018 Newsletter

Happy August, everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your summer!
We have two exciting installations to share:

The Traditional Grand Entry DeCarlo in Northern VA was an interesting solution to a boring entryway. The customer’s entryway had satin frosted glass that had been installed by their door manufacturer. We removed 4 of the largest windows, installed double pane insulated glass units and caulked our decorative glass in and Viola! The DeCarlo’s are more than thrilled with the outcome!

The Gary family in Maryland loves color and whimsical designs. They have a very large transom over their front door that we made a whole lot more exciting!

Let us know what we can do for you. Send us a photo of the space, along with the dimensions of the glass, and we will have a solution for you!

June 2018 Newsletter

Hello and Happy Summer to all!

We have been busy helping our customers with decorative glass solutions!

For the Gamble job, they wanted more light, and to remove the unattractive glass in the entryway double doors and 2 sidelight windows.

We removed the old glass and installed the leaded glass along with a piece of clear, tempered glass to meet building code.  As you can see in the before and after pictures , the job was accomplished!!

As for this next design, the Sharp’s had 2 leaded glass sidelights installed by the builder. The entryway also had a large, clear glass, circle top window.  We were commissioned to do a custom piece for that window. When an entryway has decorative glass sidelights, but the transom is empty, the entryway appears unfinished. By installing this beautiful window, they now have more curb appeal!  Most of the bevels shown were custom made and it is stunning!



What glass solution can we provide for you?  Please send a photo of the space, along with measurements of the glass portion of the window and we will be happy to provide estimates and options.




Arti in Arkansas-

Got our leaded glass windows via fed ex and installed them today- they are gorgeous!!!

Thank you so much for all your hard work.  We are very pleased!


Donna in Chicago-

I just had to write to tell you how thrilled I am with the transom window my contractor just installed. I have one big area, dining, living and kitchen and it finishes off the room beautifully, I just love it!!!

Hello and Happy Spring to all our fellow glass lovers!!

We had a very busy winter show season and into spring, installing new pieces for our customers.

We did an install in Bristow, VA for a couple who had several transoms and bath windows needing privacy.

The husband loves “cut glass” and has a large collection of glassware showcased in a lighted cabinet.

They went one step further and adorned their home with lots of our leaded glass, incorporating color in lots of the pieces.

As you can see in the transom, we used mainly clear glass, but added a light amber border along with light blue accents.

As for the master bath, the corner tub area is an expansive showplace for our work.

Please keep in mind these windows are all clear, privacy glass.  The green is just the trees!

Please give us a call or email us a photo of your window or door along with measurements of the glass portion only and we will send you estimates and options!
