Window Choices ~ Color Or Neutral

Who would have thought window choices would be such a difficult decision in our home building journey.  Well indeed they are.  My husband and I drove around the Asheville area trying to get an idea of what we wanted.  We discovered a beautiful home in the quiet community of Montreat N.C. that donned windows we adored. The windows were red!  Too bold, we asked ourselves?  It came down to color or neutral, safe or risky, bold or boring.  So after flipping a coin, one side for neutral windows the other side of the coin we would put in colored windows. The coin landed on neutrals.  So, forget the coin flipping life is too short for dull colors.  Especially when you survived this hellish recession only to be building your dream home.  So we took our inspiration from the home in Montreat and did it.  Red.
The windows are the crank style.  They open from the sides not up and down.

The window design is staying within the Arts and Crafts style we are going for.

This is our welcome bird of prey.  David and I have seen her greet us on the property a few times.
