I was in Glasgow yesterday for the day job. Unfortunately I didn’t really have much time for site seeing but I did manage to squeeze dinner in at a really lovely restaurant. It is called Ingram Wynd and is a victorian inspired Scottish restaurant, and when in Rome, I mean Scotland…..I think I’ve got myself confused.

Anyway, I am not blogging to tell you about the delicious meal (although the smoked haddock fishcakes and raspberry creme brulee were amazing!). I wanted to tell you about the decor, one aspect of which I think we should take into our own homes. Rather than just have large windows with no decoration on, they had sheets of stained glass hanging in the window – see the image below. It added such a lovely touch and made beautiful coloured light flood in during the day, and coloured lights twinkle in the night.

I really think this is something you could do in your own homes – I believe Kirstie Alsopp even did a similar thing in Kirsties Home Made Home with Abinger Stained Glass.

So get out there hunting for your perfect sheets of stained glass, or even make your own, and bring a bit of coloured light into your homes.
