Fin­ish the in­te­rior of a win­dow with a darker stain than the outer trim to high­light the depth of the sill.

Make new cab­i­netry look ages old with a dis­tressed fin­ish and rus­tic hard­ware, and pair it with a farm­house sink. Hide coun­ter­top ap­pli­ances and elec­tron­ics. Here, Patti asked her cab­i­net­maker to build a cor­ner cabi­net with an apothe­cary-style door to con­ceal a small tele­vi­sion. String corn­cobs and nuts to­gether into a gar­land and hang in place of a win­dow valance. Line the sill with old glass bot­tles for added in­ter­est.
