Windows. You know, those holes in the wall (preferably with glass in them) that let in light. Most windows are pretty unremarkable — you notice the view, but not the window itself. Not so for these windows. These windows are weird and wonderful and completely steal the show.

Above: what's better than a round window? A fully operational round window. From Debi Treloar via Oh Mai Darling.

This window (from Chen +Suchart Studio, via Apartment Therapy) plays with our idea of what's 'inside' and what's 'outside' by inviting the zen garden into the room. You can see more photos of it here.

I love how this long, narrow window extends all the way past the built-in nightstand and down to the floor. Spotted on Arch Daily.

The little window right above the tub! Pretty great. Spotted on Poppytalk.

The giant skylight/light well in the middle of this space, spotted on Trendland, makes all other windows feel inadequate.

Another round window, from Hus & Hem. It really makes the whole room.

I love the look of this long, low window that lets in just a tiny sliver of light. Spotted on Lost in Time.

Take the window above, turn it on its side, and you get this one, spotted on Plataforma Arquitectura.

Let's talk about how this might be the best window seat in the world. And there are two of them, so no sharing required. Spotted on Decoholic.

The designers of this home (spotted on Home Adore) took this window all the way to the floor, and around the corner. I love the way it makes the floor glow.

Okay, I lied. Maybe this is the world's best window seat. Photo by Paul Massey via Femkeido.

And finally, from Marie Claire Maison, a little window at the foot of a sloping ceiling lets in just the right amount of light. I'd love to wake up here.
