Dappled sunlight

I have noticed this roof tile as window detail on several 1920s
Spanish houses, so I thought I'd try it.
Here is how it looks on the inside of the
window in my foyer.

The best part-- the morning sun polka dots.
(mirror--Craig's List/ table: dumpster dive)

This window is in a powder on the other side of the foyer.

The capiz shell ceiling light fixture is also Craig's List.
It softly jingles when the AC is on.
I found these wooden *screens* on Craig's List to hang over the powder room windows for privacy.
They are always slightly crooked because I did a half-assed job as usual.

The roof tile in the window looks amazing.

Where did you find that roof tile insert? Did you make it? Love the screen you put in the window, may steal that idea!

Gisselle: My roofing guys cut the tiles to fit the window and they glued them in. I showed them photos of old houses so they did not think I was nuts.

Who is going to live in that house???
