Windows on the World

As a New England-er and daughter of a traditional architectural designer, I know I will always live in a classic style home- Colonials, Cape Cod and Greek Revivals are my jam. Wonderful historic details- molding, wide plank floors, incredible paneling is just in my blood. However, that doesn’t keep me from loving and oogling more modern spaces, especially ones with dramatic, huge windows. Lately I’ve been enamored with such spaces- both in the city and in the country!

Can you even imagine waking up to THIS???  My toes are actually curling over this image, I can barely take it.


This home is in the current Architectural Digest and is AMAZING (although baffling too- if you read the article the bedrooms are in separate buildings from the living area and no matter the weather, you have to walk outside to get there…um, no thanks.)  However, I can TOTALLY imagine sitting her with a book and coffee in sheer delight!


Yeah. Bathtime. Woah.


This view is vastly different yet equally interesting.


Pure insanity.  Incredible light (and what the nightmares of any window treatment installer are made of).

Another example of less of a “view” but still a phenomenal use of a glass wall to the outside!


This is a more traditional take on a wall of windows… and I love it. :) And the entire room too.




Iron framed windows are something I crave.  They are the architectural equal to the Cartier Love bracelet for me. Something that I hope is in my future, but I don’t count on it. :)


Another hideous spot for a bath. ;) This is at the Four Seasons in the Seychelles and it’s now added to my list of places I am dying to go.


I LOVE the use of these iron framed wall of windows all along the back of this kitchen. Amazing views.


A fabulous combination of stark modernity and pure coziness. Pass the cabernet.




The glare here might give me a migraine, but it may be worth it.


Another dreamy spot for a soak. Not sure I’d ever want to get out.


Do you like these kind of spaces? Do you live in one? Do tell.
