In this kitchen, a large window provides lots of natural light to the mostly wooden kitchen. Exposed shelves are used to store recipe books, and the kitchen has achieved a contemporary look by not including hardware on the cabinets.
The whole window will have a one foot wide window sill. I will have to show you the place to get a good idea of things. Basil planted in teacups for the kitchen, cheap and pretty teacups planted with fresh herbs on the window sill.
