Interior designers Angelique Swingle and Marcy Voyevod made it happen with Lightscreen panels. Lightscreens are a modern take on traditional stained-glass windows. They employ translucent marbles suspended in an aluminum grid to block views ― but not light. "The manufacturers let you pick marble colors and levels of translucency," Swingle says. "We selected colors based on the colors of the surrounding landscape."
Lightscreen panels are available through Architectural Systems (800/793-0224).
