Stonewood Design Trend – Black Windows

White windows were absolutely the top pick for many, many years. As of the past few years, we’ve seen clients opting for a bolder look – black windows. We are completely on board with it and love the look! So we’ve rounded up a few of our custom builds where clients opted for black windows.

Traditional Lake home

Black windows can be a daunting choice to some, as many people think they are a ‘modern’ choice. Here they are in one of our most recognized homes, traditional in style with black windows and we love how it looks!

A view from the interior shows how they frame out the view, especially when you have white interior walls.

Modern Lake Home

A more modern home in itself, our Mountain Modern is the perfect architectural design for black windows. Additionally, we love how they provide some contrast on the interior and once again frame out the views to the outside.

Traditional Lake Home

Even further up on the traditional spectrum, this home has black windows and we couldn’t love it more. The provide a contrasting warmth to the space.

Now, we know that black windows are not for everyone, but wanted to show that they work well in a variety of architectural and design styles. No matter the style of home you prefer – we find that black windows can make a great statement!

Stonewood Open House on Palmer Pointe

It’s not every house we build that we get to host a party in! Our clients who built their home on the last remaining lot on Palmer Pointe wanted to celebrate their new home by letting us throw a party for them, their family, neighbors, our clients and more!

We partnered with the interior design firm, Studio M, the appliance vendor, All, Inc., and Cambria to provide small bites and beverages while our guests perused the newest Stonewood custom build. While we haven’t yet scheduled professional photographs of the house, but we can’t wait to show you how it turned out!

With amazing lake views, well thought out floor plan, this house is one we are proud of! Having built most of the homes on Palmer Pointe, it was fun to celebrate the last one with our clients, vendor partners, and hard working employees.

Stay tuned for the photos – we can’t wait to share! For now, here are a few we took while at the party to hold you over:
