Windows over sinks tend to draw the eye, which means that this small area in your kitchen has a lot of visual responsibility. Taking some time to dress it up — even a little bit — can change the entire look and feel of the room, and reward you tenfold.

Erin of Francoise et Moi painted the window frame a pretty blue to make it stand out, and topped it off with brass hardware.

Elizabeth and Jeremy have plant vines trained around the perimeter of the window, which is both a beautifully organic and unusual decorating decision.

Two sconces on either side of sink from House & Home (via Halcyon Style) frame the window nicely and call your attention to the view outside.

Sometimes it’s as simple as adding a single pendant light to add movement and give the window some personality.
