5 x fun windowsill styling tips

If you have neighbours who enjoy taking a peek inside your home whenever they walk by, why not give them something to look at? Not your lovely interior, mind you. You should be able to keep that to yourself. Just create a nice windowsill display that reflects your superior styling skills without giving anything away about your actual interior. Keep your neighbours entertained and your privacy protected!

1. Go high

Do you have big windows but don’t feel like closing your curtains for your curious neighbours all day? A few big plants in equally large pots will shield your home from prying eyes without ruining the careful design of your interior. The elho brussels diamond round is a large but subtle and elegant plant pot that lets plants speak for themselves. Combine the pot with a large zamioculcas or strelitzia, these plants love a spot in the sun in front of the window.

2. Mix and match

Do you like a slightly messy, bohemian interior and don’t mind letting your neighbours know? Use your window sill as a proud display of your style by mixing up different plants and pots in various colours and sizes. From large to small, vintage to modern and sleek; a happy plant gang like this one is bound to make any passers-by smile. Do make sure your plants are having a good time on the window sill as well: succulents or cacti are your best choice for this spot.

3. Floral distraction

Create a colourful distraction for your neighbours and amaze them with a row of  beautiful orchids. Orchids aren’t the easiest plants to keep, but with the b. for soft orchid high pot you should be just fine. The pot has an elevated bottom, which allows for plenty of air and drainage for your orchid’s roots, keeping both your orchids and your windowsill happy.

4. Keep it neat

If you love a minimal interior, you’re probably not a fan of a crowded, messy windowsill. But you do still want to give your neighbours something to look at besides your gorgeous interior, so go for sleek green plants in pots with colours that match both your windowsill and frame. Think of an easy sansevieria in a minimal white pot, or a subtle palm.

5. Foodie lives here

Windowsills are the perfect spot for growing veggies and herbs indoors. Place a few pots with different veggie plants next to each other in a row, or build a vertical garden with a few shelves in front of the window. Be warned: your neighbours might just show up unannounced during dinner time to taste some of those homegrown veggies!
