IDUSTRIAL WINDOWS

This post is down the road of you get what you see (in the headline). As I might have mentioned earlier – I am quite fond of industrial bits and bobs in interior. I have been going on about exposed brick walls on probably several previous occasions – but I devoted an entire post to this favorite here – if you are in the mood for more of the industrial vibe I am about to set off. I always had a dream of living in a city loft with exposed bricks – amazing open spaces and floor to ceiling windows framed by tough steel. That dream is still there – but I know it is not highly likely that I will get everything I want… Sill that doesn’t mean I can’t have tiny dosages of what I want – and I do not care what house I end up in – future me that is – but I know I will be bringing these windows into my abode! Lucky for me – the H agrees on this one. I feel like there will be more of the industrial posts sneaking its ways onto this blog in the future – there is something adoring about the transparency of the industrial style. How so many details that often gets hidden away is instead brought out as a focal point of the home or the design. The unfinished surfaces, the exposing of bricks and pipes…

Well enough written ranting about my love for the industrial – and more visual ranting. There are so many ways to use industrial windows in a home; the usual way – from floor to ceiling – letting in tons of light, the maybe more unusual way – as a room divider or as walls, or the more out there way – as the walls of your shower. Enjoy!

I have been in love with this idea from the first minute I laid my eyes on it. It is quite a vile back – I think I came over it in an edition of Elle Decoration… All I remember is that this lovely home is in Paris – and every room was like a tiny piece of pure perfection – especially the repurposed industrial windows used as a room divider. Pure perfection – and the gorgeous chevron floors doesn’t exactly pull this one down.

This is an example of using industrial windows for your shower. I am kind of in love with this idea – but at the same time I am not sure this is completely how I would do it. I am also big on bathrooms – if I was to fix up a house I would probably use a lot of time on deciding what to do about the bathroom/bathrooms… Pretty important room to get right in my eyes – maybe I am a special one.

What a lovely place to wake up – don’t you think?!

I wish I could do exactly that – every single spring/summer morning. Open up my huge doors and let the fresh air (or close to fresh – being in a city and all)!

Another lovely space to shower in…

Is there a fault to this workspace? I think I will have to say no…

There is something about these kind of windows that just screams “IT IS A GOOD DAY”… Waking up to a view of everything right outside your home – letting as much as possible of the daylight into your home must be so refreshing. Especially if you have a bit of green outside your windows as well – so you do not feel too much on display.

Not the worst bathroom I’ve seen – and definitely not the worst view from a bathroom!
