Tudor Revival details are prominent in this Beverly Hills home, including the combination of brick and half-timber framing, arched passageways and leaded, casement-style windows. The diamond ironwork on the upstairs balcony mimics the diamond window panes often found on Tudor-style homes.
Low-placed crank handles make it easy to open and close the windows, despite their soaring height. Marvin’s Ultimate Casements have a wash mode that allow homeowners to turn the exterior of the window towards the interior to wash from inside.
Imagine enjoying breakfast with a view like this every morning! Floor-to-ceiling windows fill the dining room with natural light and showcase the lake outside. Cushioned chairs and a matching bench provide comfortable seating, just in case the owners want to sit a spell.
Wide casings and craftsman styling on this pair of windows blend with clean-lined white cabinetry and vintage-inspired hardware to give this California kitchen an elegant, yet casual air. Dark accents on the peninsula and built-ins create contrast, as does the dark wood bookshelf.
Forget about mellow yellow. In this contemporary dining room, walls painted a vibrant lemony hue provide sharp contrast to dark window casements and hardwood flooring, as do perfectly placed pops of bright white.
The robin's-egg-blue walls in this spacious living room complement the wood window casements and French doors. A bright white sofa, blue chair and midcentury-modern-style coffee table round out the room.
A wide wooden deck is perfect for entertaining while a matching wooden bench surrounded by container plants provides extra seating. Red window casings pop against brown raised panel shutters and match the red front door.
Some spots in the home lend themselves to symmetrical design scheming. Case in point: A desk set in front of a window. By flanking the window with a pair of branch “trees,” the design team drew attention to the sparkling wreath hanging against the glass and the mini desk-top forest.
This Spanish-style kitchen courtyard forms an arresting study in contrasts. Terra-cotta-toned concrete pavers and red barrel roof tiles appear richer against pristine white walls, which in turn look luminous against the dark door and window casings.
Mid-century modern case pieces fit the architecture and the vibe of this cozy, eclectic living room. White walls reflect light that enters the space via floor-to-ceiling windows, which offer a view to the sunny outdoor eating area. Slipcovered sofas create a relaxed ambiance, as well as a great spot for intimate conversation.
Dark-painted trim inside the window casings echoes the dark woven frame of the mirror in this California bathroom, creating contrast with the neutral walls and cabinetry. The furniture-style vanity has inset doors and drawers for a streamlined look.
