One of the things we are loving right now are the floor-to-ceiling steel-framed doors from Bliss Nor-Am.  Their chic windows let an abundance of light in and have the perfect industrial and modern combination.

The great thing about steel windows and doors is due to the materials strength, they have a very small frame thus allowing for more glass – you know we love glass!!  The clean lines are a welcome addition to any home….traditional or modern.

I love this setting – in the photo above the window wall is closed.  The next shot shows the same wall wide open, perfect to bring the outdoors in!

Remember I commented steel windows and doors are ideal for modern or traditional?  Here is a perfect example:

Super Bowl Stadium

February 7, 2011

I was truly blow away by the beautiful architecture and artwork at the new Dallas Cowboy’s football stadium.  That’s right while most people were watching the football game and waiting for the new commercials I was researching the new stadium.  🙂  Self proclaimed design nerd here!

“When creating Cowboys Stadium, the Jones Family strived from the beginning to create more than a home for the Dallas Cowboys; their dream was to create the next great architectural icon—a placethat would appeal not only to fans of sports and entertainment, but also those of architecture, art, design, engineering and technology. To do this, the family traveled the world to experience first-hand many of the finest architectural achievements known to man. These great works of historic design and construction inspired them to think beyond the expected bonds of stadium design.”

The artwork really stuck out in mind!  Here are a few of my favorites:

Annette Lawrence- Coin Toss (2009)

Dave Muller- Solar Arrangement (2009)

Matthew Ritchie- Line of Play (2009)
Mel Bochner- Win! (2009)

Visiting the stadium will be on my list of things to do the next time I visit Dallas.
