An interesting window configuration in the living room is one of Gretchen Dow Simpson’s pleasures. In this triple-fixed transom-type window, the elongated diamond pane is unusual, in that it appears to be floating among the adjoining panes. Small, high, multipaned windows are characteristic of Dutch Colonial style. This architectural form, which harks back to the early Dutch homes of the northeastern United States, was popular from the late 1800s to about 1935. This window reflects a simple elegance, considered an antidote to the embellishments of the Victorian era.
