What Houzz contributors are saying:

Glazing in windows was developed by the Romans in the first century. Glass slabs were cast into discs through a blowing technique; the discs were then formed into different shapes. Around the sixth century, artisans found that if they mixed iron filings and powdered glass into a paste, painted images onto glass with the paste, then fired the glass at a temperature close to its melting point, the drawings would become permanent. These decorative windows mostly adorned wealthy Romans villas and palaces. It wasn't until around A.D. 313, when Christians were allowed to worship publicly and Byzantine churches were built, that stained glass became an art form known to the nonwealthy. This leaded glass dome is a magnificent example of what a true artisan can achieve.

I love stained glass. Perhaps a contemporary pattern could be used. Possibly in the bathroom or perhaps on the ceiling in the entry (backlit) Or even the whole freestanding wall in between the dinning and the sitting room as a feature wall (with a fire mounted in it) that would be amazing. It would have to be darker colours and dimly lit for ambience
