Windows Style - Picture Windows As Architecture

Image by:pink sherbet
Is Anybody Home? Free Girl Looking in Window Creative CommonsWindows style is much more than just part of building a house with 4 walls, a door, and a few windows.

Really look at windows in a different light, and picture windows as architecture with a purpose.

Look at the examples below and see how some bring in light, while others allow air to come in. Notice how the frame around the window can add interest.

Windows that don't even open can add tons of color from light shining on the glass.

~Just as important notice how windows are used. Looking out or perhaps peeping in ~

What do you see when you look out  of or into a window. What is the view beyond the window style. So the next time you contemplate windows style and architecture ask yourself, "what is the purpose I want to use for this window in my home or office and even my exterior.

It is amazing how good architecture can make you feel. We often think it is just the paint on the walls or the fabric on the furniture but the architecture can take a room to new heights!
