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!

Decorative glass business does more than just churches

The work of Hanover County-based Decorative Glass Solutions is featured in new restaurants in the Richmond area.

Diane Fairburn started the business after graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University 39 years ago. The company was initially called Stained Glass Creations.

Fairburn said Decorative Glass Solutions recently completed installations in the Spoonbread Deux restaurant in the Short Pump area and in the Amici di Enzo restaurant in Goochland County.

“Some people think all we do is churches,” Fairburn said.

She said she has been commissioned by the Virginia Baptist Home Foundation to do a series of stained-glass windows for The Culpeper, a new residence home being built in Culpeper.

“Each window will be purchased by a donor, nine windows in total, from which to choose of various river, mountain and farmland scenes,” Fairburn said.

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.

 

 

Testimonials:

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!

April Newsletter

Hello and Happy Spring Glass Lovers!

Our designer, Diane Fairburn, has openings for in home design consultations in the Northern VA area Wednesday April 18 in the afternoon.  Please call ASAP for an estimate and to set up an appointment, as we fill up quickly!

 

Our feature custom design for this month is a bathroom window we did for a renovation in Midlothian, VA.

We worked very closely with our customer who has loved leaded glass since she was a child admiring her grandmother’s glass.

She loves the intertwining design work along with all the pretty bevels and textured glass.  She required total privacy in most of the panel, however, she wanted to see outside.  We used clear, antique glass in the top center to do so.

Let us know your privacy glass needs in your master bath renovation plans and what we can do to enhance your “spa” experience!
