All the Windows of my Heart...

...I open to the day. - John Greenleaf Whittier

My condo has a grand total of 4 windows. Two of which face northeast and two other which face southwest and all of which are shaded by trees. This does not make for a great lighting situation and it's pretty cave like inside my condo. Because of this, I'm constantly stashing aways photos of homes with beautiful windows that let in tons of light. This will definitely be a prerequisite when it comes time to purchase a home. For today, how about you join me in ogling homes blessed with the perfect windows to the world.

Flipping through my archives while preparing this post I discovered I could easily have put together a weeks worth of posts dedicated to expansive windows. I will stick with just the one post for now but if you'd like a peak at more archived photos check out my
tumblr blog.

  1. Ooh, the 2nd and 3rd ones are awesome!


  2. Things I'm becoming painfully aware of as I aspire to home ownership in New York of all places is the lighting situation. Frankly, lighting makes or breaks a room. Thoughtfully applied, it can completely lie about a space, which is why I love it. It makes anything look better.

  3. I really liked the 2nd and 4th designs very much. Like to have such design in my new house

  4. I looove the airy, white sun-drenched room by Annie Schlechter!

  5. I LOVE the lamp in the second pic! Nice!
