Why I Love My Farmhouse Kitchen Windows

You may think it’s weird but one of the things I love most about my home is my farmhouse kitchen windows. They’re extremely difficult to photograph because it seems like light is always pouring through them. So today when I woke up early, I thought I might be able to snap a few pics and capture their detail.

Farmhouse Kitchen WindowsEven at 6:30 in the morning there’s still a lot of light coming in, but at least you can see there are lace curtain valances and window panes. I love this little trio of windows above the kitchen sink.

 

Trio of Farmhouse Kitchen WindowsI can stand here while washing dishes and look outside. When I first stepped inside this kitchen, I was smitten with these windows so much that I didn’t even care there was no dishwasher!

I actually enjoy washing dishes by hand.

 

Pink Hydrangea in a Farmhouse Kitchen WindowThe ledge running along the bottom of my farmhouse kitchen windows provides an ideal spot for flowers, herbs, or even setting some tomatoes from the store to help them ripen faster.

Pink Hydrangea in Blue Ball Mason JarThe pink hydrangeas were cut from a few bushes we recently planted in the yard. I was debating between pink or blue hydrangeas and hubby said “Get the pink.” I was flabbergasted he wanted the pink but was happy to honor his choice.

Hope you enjoyed the pink hydrangeas … I’m enamored with them!

  1. I am in love with windows also. I have three that are very similar and I would love to stand and gaze but we have some neighbor that are miserable and they would love to make us miserable so my windows have blinds…but I do love yours. Dianntha

  2. Your windows look so pretty. The curtains are so very cute and I love your Hydrangeas and the jars they’re in!

  3. I have also noticed and admired these windows over your kitchen sink. They are perfectly farmhouse! I love the pink hydrangeas too. Try taking the photos on a cloudier day perhaps when the sun is on the other side of the house. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. It is a beautiful spot and I always enjoy seeing how you have your window sill decorated.

  5. Sigh. One of the must-haves I asked for in our new home 10 years ago was a window over the sink, as our previous house had an interior kitchen and did not have one. I did not get it. ๐Ÿ™ There is nothing like doing dishes and looking out into the yard. Maybe one day when I have my own farmhouse. LOL Plz don’t forget our Home{work} Wednesday Linky Party. xxoo

  6. Well, I can see why you love those sweet windows, Jennifer! They add so much personality and “cute factor” to your kitchen! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the way you added the aqua mason jars with hydrangea on the sills. It makes for such a beautiful photo!!! You’ve got just the sweetest kitchen ever!!!

    xoxo laurie

  7. Sigh… I cans see why you are in luv with them. I miss my window over the sink… at the old house it over looked the back garden and the boys play area.I luved it as well. In this home, the sink faces the family room ๐Ÿ™‚ Like it as well, just not as much. The breakfast nook has a bay that faces the back garden.
    Beautiful kitchen…
    Hugs, Gee

  8. I love those windows!

  9. I don’t think I could have a home without a window above the sink. A sun filled kitchen like yours is so warming to the heart of a home. Your hydrangea’s look beautiful.

    Your windows are great, especially with the window sill large enough to hold things. So many new homes do not have any window sills at all. Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, and I loved seeing yours.

  11. Jennifer your windows are beautiful. I love how the light streams in through them too. So so pretty.

  12. So pretty!
    I face a brick wall – literally ( my kitchen wall is the original brick ) so I load the dishwasher lol
    But I love yours – and that you have 3 of them!!!
    XXX
    p.s. your hydrangeas are gorgeous!

  13. I adore your kitchen and the windows ! I have one large window over my sink and I have the same issue with photographing it.
    I think that building a house without a window over the sink is just outrageous. It must have been thought up by men who never wash or cook.
    Outside my window I see deer and even the occasional bear.
    Oh do I love your hydrangeas too…can’t wait to have blooms.
    Cindy

  14. Fabulous! I have no kitchen windows in the condo we downsized to. Sooo I hung my fav old paned window over the sink to give the appearance of a kitchen window. I sure do miss a nice sunny window sill to line my fresh tomatoes on.

    Having three like you have would have sold me on the house too! Stop by to visit us sometime – we’d love to have you visit!
    Hugs, Edie

  15. love the pretty windows and light they bring! (we just installed a big window over our sink) they don’t have your window charm, but, i love being able to see the garden now:)

  16. I have always loved your kitchen windows, Jennifer. I love the deep window sills also – your hydrangea look so pretty sitting on them. One of the reasons I love my kitchen is that it has a lot of windows and I can see out everywhere. In our previous home, the window over the sink stared right into the side of another house – hated that!

  17. Hi, I found your blog from your FB page and it’s just lovely ๐Ÿ™‚
    I would be in my element to sit on your stool (hold the vase/jug to try be inconspicuous of course!) and just stare, I’m loving your kitchen and especially your windows! When I lived in the states for a little while my house had a very similar window, it was fun to change it up and try different things than the ones we have here in the uk!

  18. Love, love your windows!! I only have one and have the light issue. What a great kitchen so full of character, and I love the pink hydrangeas!! What a unique shade…here they turn purple, green and blue, and the pink ones are hot pink. Love those:-)

  19. What’s not to love? You have dressed them so beautifully. And they do everything for your kitchen! ( I hand wash dishes too.) Love your pretty kitchen.

  20. beautiful! nice spot to do your dishes. Love the light that comes through that window

  21. Those little windows are so perfect for your country kitchen. Easy to see why you fell in love with them!

  22. Jennifer,

    I always love seeing your home it is so warm and inviting!! Those windows are so perfect for flowers and herbs! Love the way you have it displayed. I would love for you to become a follower on Cloches and Lavender on my blog and Facebook. We are moving and are going to build a new home and would love you to take the journey with us and give feedback!

    Cynthia

  23. Oh, your windows are so pretty and I can certainly understand why you love them so! I really like the lace you’ve added too Your kitchen is so pretty.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. My first thought was “Wish I had a ledge like hers! ” I have two big windows over my galley kichen sink and a ledge would be so nice! But who cares…I love to look at YOUR stuff so I get by, ha ha ๐Ÿ™‚

    AND I HAVE A DISHWASHER!!! HER NAME IS DEBRA ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. A lovely spot! The color of hydrangeas, though, depends on your soil, which depends on which part of the country you live in. In New England, where the underlying rock is granite and the soil is acidic, hydrangeas will be blue, whatever color they were when you planted them. In the midwest and I think the south, where the underlying rock is limestone, hydrangeas will be pink. I hope you’ll get what you want, though all of them are beautiful.

  26. Let the light shine in just like it does in your lovely kitchen. . Have you ever walked into someones house and they have every blind and drape pulled closed. I know it is suppose to save on cooling the house but I just couldn’t live like that. No mole people here. Give me light and lots of it!

  27. They are definitely a feature of your beautiful kitchen Jennifer. I too have a very bright and sunny kitchen, which makes it the heart of our home.

  28. I love every single thing about your house! And those windows are so perfect. I keep going back to your pictures and posts over and over again. Love love love!!!

  29. Love your windows! I only have one window over my kitchen sink – and no window ledge either. So you have a bonus!

  30. Of all the kitchens in blogland… I adore yours! It’s the perfect farm-house kitchen in my mind. You’ve done a great job! The windows are charming, as is the whole room!

  31. Michele says:

    LOVE your hydrangea’s, they pop with the white:) Pinned! New face book follow. Follow me too at http://www.sewsweetvintage.com/2013/06/beachy-signs.html

  32. Your kitchen is wonderful…I also love your windows and the bead board above your counters. It’s “just right” — welcoming and country-looking.

  33. Love the simplicity!! Love everything about this blog
