I love the idea of an internal glass window. It appeals the part of me that still loves Alice in Wonderland as one of my favourite books. I think it’s the idea that you can see into another room without being in that room.
I suppose, to be blunt, it appeals to a) my sense of nosiness (well I am a journalist) and b) my fear of missing out on something that’s going on (see point a).
Finances, and possibly husband, permitting, I would like to put an internal wall between the hall and the library. If I’m entirely honest that room doesn’t need more light but it’s, er, the only place in the house where there’s enough space for this feature and (possibly more to the point) the only place which wouldn’t involve actually removing a wall from a child’s bedroom.
Something like the picture above is the sort of thing I have in mind.
This kitchen above is a picture I return to again and again. I love simple monochrome colour scheme, warmed up with natural wood and enamel lights. And, of course, the metal windows that frame it.
I like the way the owners of this house have created a glass wall to allow more light into one room.
Sadly, as it’s unlikely to happen in this house (and given that I am clearly never moving again) I shall have to continue to look at these images and imagine…
Many of these internal windows are made from steel and they really frame the space as well as looking so much more modern than traditional white wooden casings.
This may be my perfect internal window. The mix of stunning high ceiling complete with plasterwork, industrial lighting and a black-framed, steel internal window is just perfect. I might add a faded Persian rug to the floor for a splash of gentle colour but that would be it.
But wait … I also love this:
