Window boxes are welcoming and add charm to even the most boring facade. They can dress up homes, sheds and commercial buildings such as retail shops, restaurants and hotels.


Although they are widely popular throughout Europe, there are towns in the US that are known for their window boxes. Charleston, South Carolina is one of those and it’s on my bucket list to visit. I could walk up and down every street and photograph every one of them.


You don’t have to live in Europe or Charleston to add these charming accessories to your home. Here’s a sampling of window boxes that add mass curb appeal.


Neutral Window Boxes


Although I am a big fan of color, I do love the simplicity of white flowers in these black window boxes on this brownstone. So elegant.

I like how these plants add height as well as a waterfall effect. The pink geraniums add a nice pop of color.

Garden Shed Window Box


I was determined to have a window box to feed my window box obsession and found the perfect spot to add one! We added a planter below the window on our garden shed. Both the window box and our hanging flower basket add charm to a plain shed which is very visible in our backyard.
