More and more architects are integrating steel windows and doors in their designs. The advantage of using steel windows and doors is, that it ables designers to create slim profiles and frames to achieve the right proportions.
Steel windows allow a room to be filled with the maximum amount of light and is creating a closer connection with the exterior or the garden.
The combination of steel windows and wooden doors, or vice versa, is wonderful.
The images here will illusrate this.
A brick floor in combination with the steel windows and door.
The lines of the window are more or less repeated in the steel frame of the coffee table.
A close connection with the landscape outside.
Again a combination of steel and brick.
Love this door!
Steel windows are very comfortable to use in an orangery or in a conservatory. They allow the maximum amount of light to come in and create an indoor/outdoor feeling.
Notice the slim frame of this window/door.
If you don’t dare to bring in a big steel window, try a small one as this! Charming isn’t it?
A steel door/window construction between this kitchen and the room next to it.

Perfect proportion !
I love the shadows of the window lines on the floor.
I am convinced of the beauty of these steel windows and doors! Are you?
Note :I would love to thank all of you for your wonderful comments on my previous post about the teenager photoshoot of my nephew Simon!!! He was so pleased to read your thoughts!!!

This morning, whilst running very late for school drop off, I raced around my new old garden and cut some foliage for an arrangement I was wanting to create for the shop today. Here is the result above. The arrangement sits on a beautiful oval Antique table which actually just sold to one of my lovely clients this afternoon. I am loving big glass vases filled with masses of leaves at the moment. Luckily my garden seems to have the perfect plants for this type of arrangement.
Nephew Simon, the oldest son of my sister Inge, made his first steps on the catwalk!! A few weeks ago he was asked to take part of the autumn/winter teenager 2010 fashion shoot for the new magazine of the Belgian fashion store, DELEYE.
The new Magazine was edited just yesterday, so I wanted to surprise Simon with this post!!!
