Agreed! It adds so much visual interest to a space...not to mention extra light!

Kendall said...

The first one is excellent, because it's quite unique. But, I love transoms in general.

ashlina {the decorista} said...

yes....especially the first one. i love it!

Naomi@ThirteenandSouth said...

oh me too! such a great way to add light. It's the kind of element I like to design that often gets left out for budgetary reasons :(

Debby Lee said...

I love them, they add so much. Love the last one. xo

I love that they bring in more light and also add architecture to a room. Would love to have a transom window somewhere in my home. My ceilings are only 8ft so it would not work but I am with you on this one, Love Them!! Happy Thursday,Kathysue

paula said...

Danika Herrick said...

YES! And that vanity in the first shot, the tile, wallpaper, all of it I WANT/LOVE! The house with the pool has me drooling too.

Sarah La Rose said...

I love myself a good transom as well. Esepcially ones with an X. xx

That 'something's gotta give' pool shot was the exact image I based the back elevation of my home on. Someone even said, while standing up in my back yard, "you know, this looks like the pool from something's gotta give"! I am addicted to transoms and am already scheming them into my next house. A-M xx

LOVE the windows and French doors on the picture with the pool...

Excuse the ADD but doesn't that pool make you want to dive right in????

Yes indeed they are lovely and airy :) My grandma's house has these kind of windows... now I miss her so....

Privet and Holly said...

YES, one of my MOST favorite architectural features. If I ever had the chance to build my own home, I would definitely have them all over the house.....they add such amazing light and sense of space. xx P&H

Hi Erica. I live in a 1920's house that has transoms above each interior and exterior door. My windows are huge so I guess the builder/architect decided more glass was not necessary. Transoms are great for providing additional light to a space, always a plus!

French lover said...

These are amazing ! It makes me want to own a house really bad !! They wouldn't fit in the studio apartment I own in Paris, that's for sure ;)

Kerri said...

Ah, transoms....what I wouldn't give for a house full of these beauties! And that Something's Gotta Give image is one of my all-time favourites, I don't think it will ever go out of fashion. Just gorgeous! K xx
