steel-framed windows by decor happy

September 18, 2012

Hi everyone! It’s Vanessa here from Décor Happy. I’m an Interior Decorator who writes about inspirations, ideas, new products and client projects.

When I was contacted to write a guest post for the Fieldstone Blog’s “Inspirational Series”, I knew immediately what I wanted to write about.  I have admired steel frame, floor to ceiling windows ever since seeing them in the former home of Billy Joel and Katie Lee.

You remember this, right? And when you have tall trees right outside your window, there is nothing better. It would feel as if you are living in a treehouse.

Now they are not for those concerned with privacy and certainly wouldn’t work in my suburban home but you can’t deny that they add that grand gesture, that punctuation mark.

The ones I am drawn to feature grids of glass/lights separated by muntins – the strips of metal.  The muntins are so thin that they really don’t detract from the view.

When it comes to windows, I think these are the crème de la crème.  What are your thoughts on this window style? Are you just as smitten as I am?

    Great collection of photos Vanessa. I completely LUV steel framed windows. Only conflict i have is they usually are stand alone (as in no draperies) in which case i’m not sure i could do without since i love fabrics so much!
