I LOVE THEM - especially against an all white background
and although I know "the best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray"
I can guarantee you my new kitchen will have a black window.
I painted the living room window in the house we're leaving
A little while after I had finished John made window grids out of " molding " so it ended up like this
( I always meant to spray paint the grid and never got around to it ) I was SO proud of him
I always meant to spray paint them black - but never got around to it :(
But I DID get around to painting the french doors in the entrance way black as well - ( although there again I never got around to painting the transom above LOL )
Anyway, you just know these windows will be painted black, right? Along with the door
( and for WLU - Wood Lovers United - the front door is NOT wood - it's a composite material made to look like wood - which in my world is the worst kind of wood )
The black window may be the first thing I go shopping for !!!
It would suit the style AND age of our new home perfectly!
There's something so European about it, n'est pas?
Especially paired with WHITE
Moving in 4 days everyone :)
Can you believe this?
I mean, really, can you believe this?
Lots and lots of last minute stuff to do today - being the last weekend here and all :)
Party Time !!!

Oh yes, I LOVE the black windows too. It looks just beautiful. Hmm, maybe I go for that too.ReplyDelete
Wish you all the best with the moving, my dear friend.
Hugs from here
I have noticed that trend in decorating and I must say I like it in an all white room. There is something very European about it isn't there. I can see the difference in the living room window in your currant house and like it. The windows in your 'new' sunroom will look nice in black too. Only 4 more days? Wow! You must be feeling a bit overwhelmed right now. So much to do and Christmas coming!!! Just take one day at a time and get your tree up first. LOL Hugs.ReplyDelete
Um...we had those windows in one of the condos...make sure you don't get the kind we had. They were a nightmare!ReplyDelete
I love the cozy little nook by the windows! Oh I could get some reading done there!!ReplyDelete
The black windows look great. GL moving. :)
such beautiful windows and I agree about the black, I have been wondering if you found your purse or did I miss a post? I was thinking about you, lol, hoping you found it, take care, exciting times, don't exhaust yourself, Rome wasn't built in a day ( always wanted to say that, lol),ReplyDelete
I love the look of the black iron windows.ReplyDelete
I cannot wait to see what you do with your new space!! I feel like I am moving.
I adore that look. Great choice!ReplyDelete
I love the look of the black window. Oh that kitchen is going to be gorgeous. Wow 4 days I am so excited for you.ReplyDelete
Love the black windows and doors! I must say, I CAN. NOT. WAIT. for you to move so we can revel in all the wonderful blog posts with your new decorating and remodeling! LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL! Good Luck this week...remember...DEEP BREATHS! <3ReplyDelete
You have such good taste.... it's going to be fabulous!ReplyDelete
Pretty windows! I'm about to paint a few doors black. We have white trim, hopefully they'll look classy. 4 more days is so exciting! Time is flying by! On this side of the globe anyway :-)ReplyDelete
I love the black and white! So elegant looking. Wishing you a smooth move!ReplyDelete
So love the windows black! I am busting waiting for you to move so we can all see what you are doing with the new house...please hurry!!! ;) oxoxo SusanReplyDelete
Yum, I think I want black windows now too!ReplyDelete
I'm sending you two pictures I have with black French windows... Something you might want in your new house.ReplyDelete
Very, very pretty. And sophisticated. Best of luck with the moving. Did you find your purse?ReplyDelete
The trend of black windows seems to have come about in the past 6 months or so - a great contrast in the white or light kitchens. When I see the pictures my eyes head straight for the outdoors. Do like the trim John did for your window. Was wondering how to do that without cracking the glass? It's a weird and wonderful thing how we see things differently in different rooms in our own homes. You showed us the french doors you like with just the plain glass and no trim (mullions?) and then turn around and like the trim (mullions?) for your new kitchen window. And why not?ReplyDelete
FOUR DAYS? holy moley! Wanted to say that tears are OK for when you say good bye to your old place. It is truly beautiful and everything you wanted and then some. You're moving onward and upward to a new era in your life and the new place will be just as wonderful in an entirely different way.
I wish London were closer to Montreal - I can still paint and unpack and do all kinds of things - just now I need a stool or chair to sit on to do it.
Remember, we all know where you are and you will get back to us when you can - we'll all still be here when you get back. Just a single photo now and then would be a good thing - befores and afters.
All the best and take care of both you and John. Don't overdo it! Now I sound like your mother.
P.S. Hey, where's the picture of the new haircut? That is a definite must see for all of us!
I like the black windows; especially the ones that open vertically into the room. We saw many of those kind of windows in Montreal and Quebec. They all had oval knobs that i just loved. They looked so European. Very cool. Good luck with your move.ReplyDelete
I love black windows! I think they will look great in your new place.ReplyDelete
The ones I am familiar with are custom, steal casement windows, and they are single paned. You will have to share your source when you do it! Unfortunately, I had to take out 70 years old, steel, casement windows, because they no longer opened. :( I kept the one in the kitchen for nostalgic reasons. In fact, I tried to paint it black before remodeling the kitchen, but it didn't look right, because it had been painted too many times before.ReplyDelete
The black windows are fabulous, and I think they alone will make a huge difference in your room. I desperately wanted to paint the french doors in my bedroom black, but Hubby could not see it :( I know it would look amazing, just as your surely will!ReplyDelete
FOUR days? FOUR DAYS? Does John have his underwear packed yet? lol I LOVE the graphic relief of black windows against white woodwork. Beautiful- xo DianaReplyDelete
All those gorgeous images proved your pointReplyDelete
black windows look great. I never really thought about it
and now I agree.
Oooooh this might look really good in my new kitchen!ReplyDelete
Black windows are one of those subtle details that make a huge impact.ReplyDelete
Wishing you power and calm for your week ahead.
I've been a huge fan of this for the longest time....in my next house, for sure, I will have this!ReplyDelete
Only 4 days to go! Wow! Love the look of that window you chose... reminds me of Paris. Black would be awesome!ReplyDelete
Love the black window look. Wouldn't work in most homes, but looks good in yours.ReplyDelete
I love that look, yes, very French and very elegant! You have such a great eye, I love when you share! Good luck with the move, can't wait to see what you have in store for the new place! :) KimReplyDelete
Okay, I thought you said you loved black WIDOWS. Spider Girl. I was seriously going to have to question your sanity. Those windows will look great! Good luck!ReplyDelete
I am loving the black windows. Moving in 4 days, YIKES. So exciting!!!ReplyDelete
Good luck with the move! Exciting time for sure. Love black windows!ReplyDelete
Black windows, and even doors, are so awesome especially when you have a white wall. It's nice to see your window panes in black. I'm sure John did his very best to end up with this fascinating window. Hehe! I do hope you'll enjoy your place in the days to come. :)ReplyDelete

Lovely photos. Marvin & Pella are making the Casement windows w/out the center bar right now.ReplyDelete
Something I noticed in most of the kitchen photos I am going to definitely do, is to make my countertop window height. I like the idea of the counter going into the window as a sill. Easier to clean up, a bit more smooth to the eye, and a bit more counter space! Easier to clean behind the fixtures, too. :)
These are absolutely beautiful. Finish painting, girl! Your home is gorgeous. A friend calls these last tidbits of unfinished projects "Broken Teeth." Because once you do them, everything loos SO good, you wonder why you didn't have that tooth fixed years ago.
Who wouldn't love those elegant black windows, Suzan? Your inspirations convinced us that black windows are superb! Bet you redesigned your windows and painted them black. Did you post an update about this? Mind if you direct me to that post? Thanks! :)ReplyDelete
