"Political consultant Mildred Webber Holmes is admiring the skylight installed above her top-floor landing. “It gives the upstairs the look of a Tiffany lamp. I absolutely love it,” she says. It replaced “a muted, dim skylight that brought in nearly no light—horribly ugly yellowish plexiglass. We couldn’t see the sky.”
Six years after buying their home in the Wesley Heights neighborhood of Upper Northwest D.C., Holmes and her husband, Chris, tasked Anthony Wilder of Anthony Wilder Design/Build in Cabin John, with redesigning the skylight as part of a third-floor renovation. He’d be drawing new plans for a guest room, bath, and sitting area, and while he typically wouldn’t recommend skylights in historic homes, especially in the front of the house, he made a suggestion that the homeowners liked: an octagonal, leaded, pastel-tinged window.
