Inspiration: Windows & Doors

I have never really paid attention to windows. Yes I know there are solid windows, ones with grids, etc. I know you either open them or don’t. But now that I am actually having to pick windows for my own home, I didn’t realize how many options there are. And then I was of the mind frame they all have to match, but apparently not.

So I thought I knew what I wanted, but then I didn’t, and then Sue (MIL) has her ideas which I had never thought of and now my brain feels like mush. For example, we had all our windows being 5 ft in height. She pointed out, well if you have 9ft ceilings, I think they need to be 6ft windows. ohhhhh….that makes sense, shit.

Then there’s the issue with I like the “look” of crank windows, because they are more open, non-view obstructing. Kyle hates them due to the fact too many parts to break. Always so rational.

I feel like the only thing I know for certain is the windows will be white…except sometimes I dream of black. But Kyle has vetoed that, so they will be white.

Then there is doors. You can see my original Door post here. Well I had my dream door picked out…but now I’m considering grids. Ok. Then I was for certain my laundry room was going to have a dutch door, but now its not and I forget why. Then I was for sure not going to have a door going to the patio off the dining room, but now I probably am.

Are you keeping track of all this or have I lost you too?

This wood-and-glass door nearly fades into the background as it's painted the same ivory hue as the rest of the house and could easily be mistaken for a window:
Possible Front door option- mine will have windows on sides & top
Window wants…don’t know if its gonna happen
Window “look” I love.
If you have any tips, suggestions or alcohol to help me with this please speak up! Thanks.

Inspiration: Front Doors

Doors I feel are such a focal point. And something that really makes a statmement about your house and what you are about to walk in to. The minute I saw this door, I said this is THE door for my house. Whats not to like.

If I will have a black door, blue door, yellow door or red I do not know yet. But it looks great in fun colors too
For those of you that missed out on my artwork on Mondays post, here is some more with me attempting to still pick colors. So you get an idea of where our door is placed, etc.
I know, you’re amazed at my skills. Its like an exact version. I’m a visual person and I have to see it somehow on paper or person to understand what it will look like. Telling me does not work. I charge a small design fee if you like to send me pics, I can color your house too 🙂 I’m sure my inbox will be overflowing with requests.
Now as you can see from our exterior , there is a family entrance/mud room entrance whatever you want to call it. Here I want a dutch door.

Don’t go visit, her blog outshines mine. j/k

I doubt my mudroom will ever look this clean. Maybe on day 1, but doubtful. There is no poll for this inspiration because my mind is made up on these decisions. 1 of 1000 I know. Hope you like my inspirations. See you Monday.
