Hooked On … Porthole Windows

Hey y’all … happy Friday!

Today I’m sharing with you my love of porthole windows.

Not this kind:

And definitely not this kind … although it’s a little closer to what I’m getting at:

This kind right here:

They can also be seen with leaded glass:

and here up high on a wall:

And I like how they’ve placed them on this very modern building:

And here on this house they’ve used them as nice accent windows along a straight roofline that needed a little more than just a standard window:

And on this house here:

Here you can see (in the tiny picture below) how they placed the porthole window in the foyer going up the staircase at my favorite of homes, the 2002 Coastal Living Idea House in Bald Head Island, NC:

And seriously … how cute are they in this lovely tree house:

Anyway, I spent like hours looking at portholes through google image search and decided that it was a perfect way to end this week so I’m sharing them with you today … whatcha think? Yay or nay?

  1. Oh my goodness! I think I love the crazy under the sea mosaic room best! I don’t think I would choose it for my house, but I could happily spend hours in there just looking at it. And I do love mosaics, so maybe one with a different theme here? Because I need another project I’ll never finish, LOL!
