Foliage plants can dress a windowsill with strong color when you choose a mix like this line up: variegated ivy (Hedera), purple passion plant (Gynura), variegated Schefflera, pink Hemigraphis and variegated Dracaena. Elevate your indoor plants by slipping them into white cache pots for an elegant look.
Start your own seeds indoors with a windowsill propagation kit. This type of kit includes everything you need to sprout a crop of basil or chives for a windowsill herb garden. The covers for the containers provide a greenhouse effect, but also offer the option of venting open to prevent heat and moisture build up.
If a grow light is out of the budget for starting seeds, a windowsill can work instead. To help your seeds germinate, place them in a spot that stays consistently warm — on top of the fridge or a radiator are good options. Shift them to the sunniest south-facing windowsill you’ve got as soon as a bit of green is showing above the soil line. If your windowsill is drafty or cold, lay down a towel or old t-shirt like a blanket and then set your pots on top.
A south-facing window is your idea
Eclectic objects resting on an architectural balustrade console and deep windowsill in the living room include a pair of seventeenth-century Tunisian marble vessels, French gold dore candlesticks and an eighteenth-century Venetian damask coffer. Simple linen sheers informally frame the windows.
This bedroom corner, designed by Gregory Augustine, provides a comfortable spot to rest and read in the afternoon. Artwork was interestingly hung below the windowsill to be enjoyed at eye level while seated.
HGTV's Design on a Dime transformed this roomy kitchen with small cottage charm. Baby blue cabinets and stark white walls are paired for high contrast. A small stand-alone island and container garden on the windowsill are cozy accents.
