New Windows

For some people it might weird for someone to get so excited about new windows but, for me, it is better than Christmas. Our old windows were either (a) single panes, (b) fixed w/o being able to open, (c) missing screens, or (d) all of the above. They drove me crazy b/c I could never really get a good breeze going to air out the house (among other reasons). We replaced all the big windows with triple paned, energy efficient windows. It is amazing the difference inside. The house stays cooler and it is so quiet. I can no longer hear every conversation of passerby. They also tip in for easy cleaning! I am in love!

The front of the house has paned windows and all the windows are white trimmed inside and black trimmed outside. We got the black trim on the outside based on the color that we will be painting the house (eventually). Here are some before and afters for anyone else who is in love with windows like me.

Wow, they really makes a HUGE difference aesthetically! Yaaay new windows that don't leak and aren't sanded panes of glass!

ZOMG..I'm so jealous! I've been dying for new windows for 5 years now.

They look fantastic and way better after than before!

Wow, those look awesome! But now I'm curious...what color do you plan to paint the house?

Kel - we are thinking a white/cream/beige type color with black trim. But the trim isn't going to go exactly where the brown is now. I don't like that harsh horizontal line of brown that goes all the way across the house at the top. I am thinking about doing the top part above the window like the first floor window is. Also, a fun painted door. Maybe red?

You have an amazing home! I love DC row houses. We have friends who live in one somewhere in DC as well and I wish I could be there decorator and help remodel with them. Your photos are so pretty as well.

I have a rowhouse in Baltimore and am always looking for new ideas with such a small space. I love your dining room table. Where did you get this?

@Tricia The dining room table is from Ikea, actually! Great price! I just looked on the website for it and couldn't find it but I was just at Ikea last weekend and they still had it in the store.
