Style your window sills

You can use everything to style your window sill. Think of plants, pots, vases, candles, etc. Try to keep them in the same style and colors as the rest of your interior, so that it matches the rest perfectly.

But before you start, it’s useful to check why you want to style your window sill. Is it purely decoration, or do you want to create more privacy? For example if you live on the ground floor and people passing by can look into your home, it can be nice to cover it a bit with large plants and tall vases.
