Windows are the eyes of the home, and window selections were crossing mine. Here are the farmhouse style window selections we’ve made.
Whew… brow wipe… we picked windows! What a task! So many choices out there! I’ve learned so much in such a short time. Literally, I’d thought about it for about a year, but had to make the windows in about a week’s time. I always thought, ooh I just need to pick a color, but nooo, there’s so much more!
The design inspiration stemmed from both modern and farmhouse styles. My style is sometimes hard to describe. It’s kinda a touch of everything all rolled into one.. with strong modern farmhouse influences.
OK here’s what we chose:
- Brand: Atrium Windows
- Color: Bronze Exterior, White Interior
- Type: Single hung, Vinyl
- Grid Pattern: 8 divided light (what I like to call “modern colonial”)
Here’s a visual, so you can see the grid pattern and color.

The original windows on the house are bronze in color. I’ve always loved dark windows, so keeping the original color felt right. However, I was having the great inner-debate, do I want dark windows inside? What I mean is, when inside the house, I really like the look of white windows.
When I found out I could get two-toned windows… I was like SOLD!!! It totally brought together the two little voices in my brain to say, perfect!
There was only one more thing. I have a very, very special bathtub, that I searched a long time for, and eventually found on Craigslist for the master bathroom. A vintage center drain clawfoot tub.
Clawfoot tub found in east Dallas, before coming to its new home in north Houston.
I wanted the window above the tub to be unique because, let’s face it, she deserves it. So the window above the tub is a French casement window. It has that extra pizzaz to showcase the EXTRA clawfoot tub.

Don’t worry neighbors, we will frost the glass. I promise 🙂
I’m extremely happy with all the window decisions and can’t wait to see all of them installed.
