A little known fact about stained glass that many people just might not know is that it can look simple and plain just as easily as it can look overstated and luxurious. In addition to the many exuberant and intricately designed stained glass styles, there are just as many stained glass styles which are very simple, pleasing to the eye, and convey a straightforward approach. Many refer to these stained glass styles as simple designs and surprisingly, simple designs are extremely popular for a wide range of individuals, and are also gaining tons of momentum as the best new way to incorporate stained glass into any modern home or office. Simple stained glass designs are just that, simple designs, this means that they do not have many colors or different shades interspersed into the glass like other styles might, and they just do not include any complicated imagery whatsoever. Every aspect about simple designs are easygoing and approachable, not unnecessary and extreme. The look of a simple design is usually composed on a plain background, and then there are usually one, but sometimes two separate images within the stained glass itself. These images usually range from a single flower such as a rose or violet, a religious symbol such as a cross, a woman’s face, two buzzing bees, etc. These simple designs do not look opulent or excessive, but instead, express a fantastic design aesthetic and bring any room some much needed cheerfulness and bold appeal. Even with simple designs, the stained glass is still front and center, and bring a bold center point into any room. As it goes to show, simple stained glass designs are perfect for adults as well as children, and many are completely satisfied with the overall look these simple stained glass styles bring into any room in a home or office.

Evoking a relaxed and stress-free approach, southwest stained glass styles are both extremely ambient and very peaceful. Each southwest stained glass style is great for giving off the feeling of actually being right in the midst of the southwest. With rolling winds, green-hued cactus, big desert plains as far as the eyes can see, as well as sunny blue skies, southwest stained glass is really a beautiful way to showcase an appreciation for nature and for the southwest as a whole. Many people love to incorporate southwest stained glass styles in their home because southwest stained glass looks great when coordinated with a wide range of different furnishings. The best furnishings to pair with southwest stained glass are understated, simplistic, made from natural materials, and that give off a fuss-free overall approach. Especially for homes in remote locations, or even homes located in the desert, southwest stained glass is especially popular.

In addition to cactus plants, desert plains, and sunny blue skies, southwest stained glass can and does sometimes include animals that traditionally live in the southwest such as coyotes and lizards, imagery of American Indians in traditional garb, cowboys on horses, as well as birds, stars, religious crosses, and amazingly beautiful sunsets. Southwest stained glass looks great in any room in a home or even office. This specific type of stained glass does not only look great as a replacement for traditional windows, but also looks great when displayed as a wall hanging, or when placed on a shelf or above a fireplace. But, always remember, southwest stained glass looks best when used in conjunction with some type of light shining through uncovering beautiful shapes, images, and colors. Either with the sunlight or even the light of a fire from a crackling fireplace, southwest stained glass never misses a beat and always conveys an incredible expression of warmth and love.
