Decisions...

So many to make.  I'm not complaining, because the great part about completely gutting a house is that you can make any change you wish. Why, then, does the word "overwhelming" come to mind so frequently?  


We have French style patio doors along with three double hung windows on order for the addition. I'm looking forward to all the natural light these panes will siphon into the house, and I'm starting to dream about how we will finish all our windows. Yes, another decision!


I love the crisp and clean look of white. However, I keep coming across images of windows with their frames and mullions painted black. It's a rather daring move, suitable to both modern and traditional homes. Ours is a mix (that's good). I am only willing to paint once (that's not necessarily good), so I need to be very sure of this decision. What do you have to say about black frames and mullions with white trim? Should I do it?

And if I do, should I go all out and coat the doors with a rich, inky shade of black?  I'm thinking maybe so, but would love to hear your thoughts.

  3. I actually really like it- esp if you have a lot of light and the rooms are wide open. What are you painting the walls??!
