Windows, windows, windows

I’ve never paid as much attention to the windows on houses I pass by as I have lately. I discretely (sort of) walk up to stranger’s homes and touch their frames to see if they’re wood or aluminum. I used to just notice a house and comment on aesthetics. Now I ask questions like “are those aluminum clad or anodized?”

In any event, I’ve discovered a new found love for steel / metal windows. They’re stunning. Take a peek:

We want an industrial look, but we also don’t want to be freezing in the winter. I’ve been told that steel windows have come a long way, but given that we’re living in Toronto, we’ve decided to opt for something more practical / affordable. Exactly what, we’re unsure at this point. While we decide, why not check out these inspiring views:
