Whether it’s a big city skyline or an idyllic nature scene, a gorgeous view is without a doubt priceless. And while we’re big fans of unadorned windows, stylish window treatments and coordinating décor only increase the beauty of a JELD-WEN window. We chose three different windows and dressed them up to complement the surrounding décor and frame that stunning view.
The modern farmhouse look has surpassed simply being trendy and has taken its rightful place among classic decorating styles. From the white shiplap to the smooth marble countertops, this kitchen is an ideal space to build on that look. For the wood casement windows, dark interior finishes like Chestnut Bronze or black for the grille—shown here in the six-lite Colonial style—offer contrast to the bright, light-filled space. Simple window treatments like the Lindstrom white cotton curtains from Crate & Barrel filter light and add subtle texture. Pair the curtains with iron hardware for dimension and complete the look with a trio of mini pendants over the sink, like the Sandy Springs style from Wayfair.
Ready to break all those “small space” rules? Floor-to-ceiling custom wood casement windows bring instant drama into this subtle bedroom, offering lots of light and endless styling opportunities. Light-filtering cellular shades are an easy way to invite color into a space. Shown here in Cosmopolitan Chipotle, Bali’s DiamondCell shade insulates and provides privacy without sacrificing style.
But wait, there’s more! Consider a layered look and introduce a patterned curtain to make a bold statement with your window treatments. This magnolia curtain from Anthropologie is made from a light cotton slub, which won’t darken the room or weigh down the overall look. Top off the room with an oversize light fixture, like the polished aluminum Donna pendant from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.
Big windows, open floor plans and high ceilings—don’t let the grand scale of a loft dictate the level of coziness you can create. This custom wood single-hung arch top window deserves to be seen, but when privacy is in order go for minimal coverage like these fabric sliding panels. A cozy space isn’t complete without a spot for curling up with a good book or cup of coffee, right? This low-profile Equestrian Chair from Schoolhouse Electric features broken-in leather for a well-worn look, while a nailhead trim keeps the piece classic. Round out the space with a light fixture that imparts a warm glow, like the Sola 36 Chandelier from Design Within Reach. The handcrafted aluminum canopy and hand-blown glass globes are a stunning mod-meets-vintage mashup, and add a slice of sleekness to the space.
