Have you ever gone to a foreign country and just marveled at the details and architexture?
But it's also those small detials that can add such a dramatic effect. For example, look at this building in La Chapelle-D'Abondance, France.
Can you imagine what is would lose without the window boxes?
ALOT of charm and character would be missing.
Which is why I am trying to get my husband motivated to add window boxes to our home.
It's really and easy fix to add curbside charm to any home. Hang window boxes on the front of your cottage for a romantic look. Overflowing with lush annuals and punctuated with various textures and bursts of seasonal color, these containers will seamlessly blend your house and garden and instantly boost curb appeal.
Notice the details: Proper scale is essential when adding window boxes.
The planter should be the same width as the window to avoid a wimpy, barely there look.
And don't think you have to hang your window boxes, if your window sash is wide enough, you can set it directly inside like this one shown below:
But if window boxes are not your thing, you can apply these same ideas to potted plants. Who doesnt love a container garden?
Don't box yourself in. Think out of the box!
