We turned a small nook, opposite, into a seating area by adding a cushion and pillows. The window boxes are planted with four types of ivy; the mix of green leaves draws the eye from the interior to the outside world. We chose a soft, neutral paint (Benjamin Moore Historic Color Monterey White), which sets a contemplative mood.
A beat-up tree stump from West Elm serves as a small table. A simple drinking glass holds a handful of hosta leaves and flowers.
