Things We Love: Steel Doors and Windows

Maisons Cote Sud Magazine
Doors and windows are one of those things that are so crucial to the feel of a house but are quite often overlooked.
Chris Barret Design
Sometimes, we can go through them and look out of them many, many times a day and never give them a second thought.
When they’re as fabulous as these steel doors and casement windows, though, the panes in your home become something truly extraordinary.

We usually think of steel as adding an industrial touch,

but, when used the right way, these steel doors and windows add an antiqued, lived-in feel to a home.

They are sleek, clean and uncluttered,

while still maintaining an undeniable charm.

They add that all-important touch of black that every room needs,

and make a statement all their own, no window treatment required.

Talk about intensifying the view! We could stare out any of these doors and windows all day long.
We hope your Thursday has room for a little daydreaming, whatever window you’re looking out. Thanks for stopping by!

In Good Taste: Anne Hepfer Design

Some designers simply personify good taste.

Timeless elegance, the mingling of time periods and pieces and that all-important air of sophistication that doesn’t take itself too seriously are just a few of the things we love about Anne Hepfer Design’s gorgeous taste.
We adore how these designers can make a space fun and spirited,
While still maintaining that upscale sophistication.

What an idyllic spot for fresh air and relaxation.

 

Toddler mealtime has never looked so… delicious!
What a perfect spot for brunch!
A beautiful banquette brings a breakfast room to life.
These floors are fabulous!
One of our favorite things about Anne Hepfer Design is the ability to make both a formal home and a weekend cottage evoke the perfect feeling.
Red exudes so much energy in any room.
Children’s bedrooms are always so much fun!
It’s those extra special details that make these children’s rooms truly amazing.
A cozy nook for hosting guests!

 

We would love to be spending a warm, relaxing day catching up with friends on this lovely patio. We hope it’s beautiful where you are today!
