Classical Twist: A Modern Townhouse with Traditional Reference transitional living room
 

Classical Twist: A Modern Townhouse with Traditional Reference

A bachelor with an ambitious project, and plans to start a family, called on me to convert a rundown apartment building into his dream home. This stunning city dwelling is the result of my love for New York townhomes, with European influences and modern flair.

Can you find black or dark brown windows in vinyl? I've been looking everywhere as we're building in a cold climate and I love the look of dark windows, but need to go with vinyl.

I agree, dark window frames are chic! I'm not familiar with vinyl manufacturers, but I'm sure someone must. Keep up the hunt!

Other rooms? - Hello, Did you continue the dark outline of the windows in other rooms of the house? It's absolutely beautiful but was wondering if cohesiveness and repetition of that specific detail in other rooms was necessary before I try something like this. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: New Style with Old-World Warmth
The garden level of the home is devoted to guests, or any live-in staff. This portion of the house can be easily accessed from the main residence, but can also provide privacy if need be — there's an elevator to the main house, but there's also a private entry from the street. The space consists of three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, laundry and terrace.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Every Room Needs a Little Bit of Black
This designer also opted for black trim on the windows. See how it gives the room a refreshing crispness and definition, making the windows pop and giving cohesiveness to the room.

Painting the window trim black. I painted my foyer entry door and its trim black and it looks stunning against the latte colored wall and wallpaper of Colonial homes and barns with black roofs. Did the stair risers black also.
