Thanks EJ for teaching me this term. Technically transom windows are the windows above the door that let in extra lighting and sometimes air. The side window in this picture is actually in a closet I think in this case these are also considered transom windows.
In many cases, transoms are strictly decorative. The home doesn't exactly need them, structurally. But they add an interesting design element don't they?
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
