Black window frames continue to dominate the world of architecture and interior design, and these black casement windows make a statement that is both on-trend and enduring. Notice how the dark, sleek lines of the windows compliment the bright white contemporary kitchen cabinets and living room sofa.

With more than 20 of our Architect Series Contemporary windows flooding both the living and dining rooms, this home is beautifully illuminated with natural light at every angle. EnduraClad exterior finish helps protect these windows from the elements, ensuring beauty that’s built to last.

As you make your way upstairs, a custom vertical rectangular window and glass globe chandelier create a mesmerizing display of light. We love how the architects took advantage of the extra space in the intermediate landing by creating a small lounge area. Abstract art and geometric pillows add color and balance to this clean, modern contemporary design.

Bathrooms are often one of the most underutilized spaces for natural light, but when designed with windows in mind, the result is both practical and enhancing. While the rest of the home features blonde hardwood flooring, the dark flooring used in the walk-in shower area gives the bathroom a resort-like feel.

Our favorite spot in this home is without doubt the upstairs loft area, which features a series of custom windows and doors that open up to a walk-out rooftop patio. Can’t you just picture yourself hanging out with friends and family as you watch the sunset together here? Our motto here at Pella is perfectly beautiful, and this? Well, this is it.
