Glorious Glass + Wondrous Windows

Many of you may remember the Crocodile Dundee movie where he is walking down a street in NYC and a couple of punks stop him.  One of them pulls a knife.  Dundee looks at the knife and says (in his thick Australian accent), “You call that a knife?”, then pulls out a knife at least ten times larger and very scary looking and says, “Now THIS is a knife!”.

 

Now THIS is a window!

Translate that thought into windows and THAT is what we are talking about today.  Not just the boring, basic rectangular window that every house has (ho-hum) but windows on steroids, windows as art, windows as an architectural statement, windows as a view to the great outdoors.

Holy Cow!

 

Too many tract homes are created with no interesting features.  You don’t have to build a million dollar home in order to take advantage of a little window creativity.  Take a look through the looking glass…….

 

TRADITIONAL

Traditional doesn’t have to be stuffy. Take a look at these gorgeous windows that are right at home in a traditional setting.

Contemporary

Traditional not your style? Sleek trim, huge expanses of glass and the minimalist look of contemporary windows not only showcase a beautiful interior but also the art of nature beyond the window.

Art Deco

So creative and unusual! This seems to be the last era where interesting glass windows were a standard feature.
