Trending - Black Windows
A look I am seeing more and more is window frames painted black, either left bare or dressed very simply as in the Ellen O'Neill apartment just below. Although one can find many examples of this trend, I especially like black windows juxtaposed against Chinoiserie as here - with blue and white Chinese porcelain above, Chinese toile fabric just below (Cowtan and Tout's Siam), and Chinoiserie wallpaper in the bottom photo. It is also a perfect choice if one has very tall windows that are difficult to do window treatments for that don't look awkward.
