I live in a house that was built in 1952. Alas, last spring we replaced all of the inefficient windows that leaked the cooled and heated air from the inside to the outside…and allowed in the cool and hot air from the outside. So in the kitchen I had installed a 6 inch window sill above the sink rather that the standard 2 1/2 inch sill. This allows space for flowers, knick knacks, coffee mugs, and perhaps most importantly a champagne glass while cooking! I spend a LOT of time in my kitchen and want it to be a happy place with fresh flowers and a sunny outlook. Here is a simple example of a window sill “still life” in my kitchen home.
