So I have this thing for square windows; totally love them. And today I’m posting a few–take a look at these square windows from rooms all over the house:

This one frames an amazing water view; perfect for a relaxed and luxurious bathroom like this. That tub is pretty special too.This square window frames an amazing water view. | japanesetrash.com


Here’s a wood-framed square window with a shelf-like deep sill that acts as a desk extension in this home office:

There’s so much to like about this terrific kitchen, but my favorite thing about it is the view out of that square window:

Everything about this kitchen is great, but I particularly love the view out that square window. | japanesetrash.com


Absolutely one of my favorite bedrooms ever (can you spot it in one of my previous posts this week?), the square window placed high on the wall is part of what makes it so unique and inspiring:

An all-time favorite bedroom of mine, this is extra inspiring because of the square window placed high on the wall. | japanesetrash.com

When it comes to kitchen trends, creating impact is always near the top of the list. Here’s a look at just a few kitchens impact that have come across my screen lately:

This kitchen has tremendous impact with its dramatic color scheme and metallic drawer fronts. | japanesetrash.com

Talk about impact. This kitchen has tremendous impact with its dramatic color scheme, wide plank flooring, focus wall with no upper cabinets, trio of hanging pendants and those amazing metallic drawer fronts.


A gorgeous sunken kitchen that makes a statement using all wooden finishes--including the ceiling. | japanesetrash.com

On the other end of the impact spectrum, we have this gorgeous sunken kitchen that makes a subtle–but clear–statement using all wooden finishes–including on the ceiling. One of my favorite touches here is the use of ottomans as low counter stools.


The framing of this kitchen feels like a stage opening, giving it a very theatrical effect. | japanesetrash.com

The way this black and white kitchen is set within a frame is very theatrical, giving the space a heightened and dramatic feeling. The high-gloss, GLAMasculine finishes add to that effect.


Minimal kitchen. With logs. Brilliant. | japanesetrash.com

Here the pendulum swings to the opposite side once again, with a starkly minimal kitchen where the impact and serene beauty comes from an under counter space filled with logs.


Impact in this kitchen is accomplished using layers. | japanesetrash.com

And here’s a kitchen that uses layering to create impact – layering of materials visually: wood/marble/cabinets/backsplash, and layering of color and texture. This kind of mixing makes magic when done as expertly as is shown here.
