DECORATING AROUND WINDOWS

Windows and patio doors are a very important feature in a home.  You can completely change the look of your home by the way you dress your windows or what you put in front of them.   A window can become another painting, especially if the outside is looking in through the window.     

There are many ways of dressing a window.  With curtains, blinds or just plants in front of it.   If the outside is very interesting to look at it is better not to cover the window.   Of course if you want privacy it is best to install blinds.

Here is one of my windows which I like to decorate with old photographs and flowers

the next window does not need any window dressing nor curtains, it would only hide the beautiful garden outside.

perhaps a few tiny little vases with cut flowers are enough

The living room windows have wood blinds to give it an exotic look.  In front of it I placed a comfortable chair to look outside, surrounded by my favourite plants.

Colourful curtains give the room a special look

This kitchen window looks really very nice and fits well with the table in front of it.

The windows in the sunroom are not covered.  But when it gets too hot we install temporary curtains which we can pull to keep the sun out.

There is also a lot of light coming through the glass ceiling and we sometimes have to install a sun umbrella, which gives it this outdoor patio look.

  1. I love your idea to not cover windows when they open to a beautiful view. We just replaced our windows at the chalet and used black frames. These frame the vista beyond…beautiful! Your blog confirmed my idea to leave the curtains in storage.
    Thank you!
