Hmmm, so I shared my thinking about the mudroom windows on Friday. It's Monday now, so, of course, I have more thoughts. And more pictures.
But first, let's do a little vocab review, so we all know what we are talking about:
Nice, huh? So now I can say things like, "I painted the casing front, but not the stiles, channels, rails or jambs" and you know what I mean. Right? Right?!?!
So, yeah, that's what I did. And I think that, at the minimum I need to continue the cream colored paint to the side of the casing piece. But...maybe also the jamb? Not sure. So let's look at some photos to see what we like, shall we?
Here is the original inspiration photo, where it looks like they used the contrast color on the sashes, but not the jambs.
Here we see another green window that is, suspiciously, just the same...
And here, some sliders in the same vein yet again.
These nice folks have the full monty all painted out, the trim, the sashes, the jambs.
And here we have a nice blue where they have, again, matched the jambs to the trim.
Anyone else noticing all the green and the blue? Maybe a little "bringing the outdoors in" thing going on here?
But, really, what I want to know is if anyone has both the sashes and the jambs in the contrast color? Turns out, the answer is yes, but usually in black or a dark color.
I'm thinking all the dark colors being like this is a way of giving an interior space more of an exterior feel? After all, this contrast technique is very common on the outside of homes...
Anyway, so much to think about, and I was nearly blind from squinting at photos, trying to see what, exactly, they had painted the accent color versus the trim color. And then, I saw this - and it's actually also a sunroom...so kind of perfect, right?
I mean, come on, it's practically my room. Give or take, oh, 800 square feet!
