Simple Decorating Ideas For Your Window Sill

If they say, “The eyes are the windows of your soul,” is it also safe to say, “your windows are the eyes that provide the windows of your home’s soul.” That was just my analogy but let’s admit it, a drab window sill is a bit boring, don’t you think.

For many minimalists, having too much decoration on their window sill defeats the purpose of having a clean and minimal living. However, there are some who prefers to add a little touch of life (aside from life seeping in) to something that is necessary for a house.

Some houses have windows without provision for an extra space to add something decorative and fun to add character to a home. Other houses have wider window sill that can give them the opportunity to decorate as they please depending on their style and preference.

If you prefer to decorate your window as simple as possible just to add character and color to your home, here are some inspiration to get you started.

 

Add various shapes of vases and jars

I love seeing various sizes and shapes of jars displayed along a window sill. I also like seeing those big apothecary jars with odd shapes and glass caps. They add a certain flair to a seeming bland window set-up. You can go full on color blocking with the color motif or stick to a rather conservative monochromatic tone to complement the design of your room.

Below photo shows a beautiful array of various apothecary jars. You can fill them up with small river rocks, sands of various colors, and even knick and knacks from other holiday decors.

Add small succulents

A plain window sill can liven up with the addition of small plants like succulents which are low maintenance and does not require frequent watering that will mess up your place.

Add coffee table books

Wide window sill provides added storage space for bigger items that you want to display like your coffee table books. The wide dimension can hold thick and heavy books that would normally look odd in a book shelf.

Coffee table books are that normally have beautiful pictures that catches the eyes of the reader. It is not always thick and heavy but big enough to place on your table for either display or added entertainment.

Plants add life to any window sill, whether they are colorful or mono-colored tones.  Putting flowery small plants can add color to your window and home too.

 

Add novelty decors

Putting your novelty items on display are great conversation pieces, aside from adding flair to your home. Bigger collectibles are perfect items to display on your window sill. And the more eclectic it is, the better.

 

There are certainly many ways to dress up a plain window sill and not overpower it with decors that it make your window sill cluttered. You do not have to spend a fortune to pull any of these styles off. All you need are probably there in your home already. And of course, add some fun and creative juice into it.

Happy decorating!

Used dried leaves

This is the easiest to do! Besides, there are plenty of leaves lying around that simply shouts “Thanksgiving!” Pick up some big, dried leaves around and hang them on a string or use small wooden pegs to clip them on a string. You can also add lettering on each leaves to spell out Thanksgiving or anything you wish to use. It’s time to be crafty.

Cut out photos of autumn themes

Keeping those old colourful magazines and picture books can be handy at all! Cut out shapes of Thanksgiving themes onto those glossy paper and use as your banner. Paste them on a nice backing paper for colour pop.

Tie big ribbons with Autumn colours and prints

If you have old shirts or spare fabric lying around your house, then cut them into strips and tie them onto a sturdy string to create a colourful Thanksgiving banner.

Pink and Shabby Chich Christmas Tree Decoration Theme

I am so fascinated with pink, be it pastel pink, light pink, fuchsia pink, hot Barbie pink – anything PINK! That’s why they call me Barbie because I just love pink. So, I am so inspired and really psyched to do a pink Christmas theme next year. I have already started purchasing and collecting pink ornaments for next year’s pink Christmas tree decor theme. I will also buy pink Christmas decors after the holidays so I can get them on sale which I will use for next year.

It’s never too early to buy for next year’s Christmas decor. As a matter of fact, it will save you big time to buy decors few days or after Christmas because they will be on mega sale. And that’s exactly what I will do.

I gathered fabulous pink themed Christmas tree decors from the internet and amongst all the photos I have collected, below are the ones that really tickle me “pink,” pun intended. (Credits to all photos’ owners.)

 

I imagine our 2015 Christmas tree to be more of a shabby-chic, Victorian inspired one so I will need plenty of these materials if I want to save money and make my own ornaments.
