Let's Shed Some Light on the Subject.

So our carefully-chosen and long-awaited windows arrived this week. Half of them are installed and, um, well. Who knew bronze would be so much like black?

If you look carefully, you can see that they really are brown. I think the black paper around the windows made them look much darker than they will look when trimmed out. (Right? Tell me I'm right. Please.)

On the brighter side of things, the interiors are white and look awesome installed. In fact, I love when you look into the house from the front door. There is so much light coming in through these windows, and the view is of nothing but trees and green.

And do you like the prairie grill pattern as much as us? It is craftsman all the way, and offers some design without obscuring the view. We really love the pattern.

So, why didn't we just go with white windows? Remember, we are house stalkers extraordinaire. Our favorite house ever has awesome craftmans details and (you guessed it) bronze windows, trimmed out in cream, with green siding. I'll try to scan some photos of it and post them for your viewing pleasure. She's a beauty.

I think the windows look great!! And we are doing a very pale gray with a hint of blue. I'm not sure where to go for the fabric around here, the only place I know is hancock...maybe have to go to st. Louis?

Thanks for the encouraging words. I hope they will look great in the end. I would try to order the fabric online. Design Mom has several older posts about neat fabric sources.
