Pass Through Windows & Dutch Doors

What could be more charming than an indoor-outdoor pass-through window in the summertime?  I enjoyed seeing how designer Erin Martin brought the same marble seen in the interior of this kitchen — to the other side of this charming paned window for an outdoor dining experience.   She added some industrial inspired outdoor stools for a casual yet edgy feel seen in House Beautiful Magazine.  Pass the beer, wine and lobster rolls outside for a fun evening meal!  I’ve included two more inspiring indoor-outdoor pass through window ideas.

While we are on the topic of pass-through windows and counters – I also love Dutch doors!  Open the top to bring the outdoors in.  Here are a few favorites!

The cherry red paint and lattice panes makes this Dutch door pop!  What a way to welcome house guests!What unique architectural details does your house have?

    HI Melissa,

    I love the pass through window that designer Erin Martin used for the kitchen/outdoor bar above….do you happen to know who makes this window? Or any direction on where can go to find out?

    Thank you!
