You may want to include close-up pictures of the real windows too if you can find some. –  Joubarc Nov 24 '11 at 12:19
    
The White House and Capital are technically both palladium architecture. –  Ambo100 Nov 27 '11 at 14:01

I like the last one in particular, I think it very well suits the style the OP was looking for. –  Ambo100 Nov 26 '11 at 23:27
