4/8/16A Garden Window for the Win!
Bringing the outdoors in is a thing around here, and one seamless way to do that is through a garden window. While normally seen in kitchens, I’m all for installing garden windows all over the house. If you put enough plants in the window you get the privacy of a curtain, and all the happiness that the plants bring.
This is a new garden window that we just had installed in our bedroom. It’s six feet long and facing south so it gets a ton of sunshine, perfect for our succulent garden. Pretty fun, hey? I found the pots at this great pottery shop I mentioned the other day and then sprinkled in some vintage and handmade ones from eBay and Etsy to add visual interest. I love the look of the pedestal pots in the mix. The idea of using all white pots actually came to me in a dream (yes, I’m a weirdo that dreams about plant pots) because I initially thought about going all terra cotta. I’m glad I went with the white/light palette because it feels so dreamy and relaxing for the bedroom. The garden window is the fist thing I see when I wake up in the morning and it’s making me really, really happy.
If you love the look, but are renting or don’t want to deal with having a new window installed, you could always add shelves to an existing window, like we did in our last home:
And now that I see this, I wanna paint everything green. Ha!
OK friends, have a great weekend and get a chance to relax and maybe do some planting!
Also, FYI, the site may be a little wonky this weekend as we’re about to launch a BIG site redesign so bear with us as we do our spring cleaning over here!
