I’ve been doing double takes, clicking back again and again at homes and spaces with these windows! I enjoy the modern elegance that I feel exudes from these style of windows. The great thing is, they don’t just have them in black (although I am in love with the black right now), they are also in white and wood and metal. There’s something about the size of the panes and the way the light enters against the silhouettes….beautiful! Here’s some of the photos I’ve come across, and the cool thing about them is they can lean towards traditional or modern.
The first window, is definitely a picture window, showcasing that wonderful garden space. It is so regal I think I could spend a whole weekend in front of it with friends, eating croissants and drinking tea…..absolutely divine! So yeah, I know your thinking (and I’m thinking), “I don’t have that window in my house, how am I going to get the look and feel of a regal-garden-showcasing-really-tall-industrial-window?” Well, much of the fabulousness (a made-up word) of this space has to do with light, nature, and shapes/silhouettes, so if we can mimic those concepts and reflect them into a favorite place in our own homes, then we can have that fresh feeling everyday (sounds funny, but it’s true)!
After you’re through daydreaming, about all of these photos, I have some other photos of smaller spaces that exudes similar qualities that you should here. The photo below has a more modern feel yet retains some classic elements that are widely appealing.
You can still have rustic charm, with factory windows….put your worries to rest :)
The photo below is of a small French kitchen, which also incorporates some rustic elements, as well as, using two different types of factory windows. This also segues into the use of factory windows indoors; see how there are windows on the outside and then they are use in the foreground and on the right, next to the fridge.
Here is another window or door, which is frosted and used as a wall/divider which lets in more light. I think that is great for an office or reading area, where privacy is not a necessity.
Lastly, this shower door below is a great sleek element, working wonderfully with the claw-foot tub, the ornate chandelier, and the very textural, graphically rustic floor stones…great combo!
