One thing that really stood out when I visited my family and friends in Sweden last year was how much we use our window sills in our homes. I don't see any window sills in Canada in the way we have them back home in Sweden and I miss putting plants and lamps in the windows. I remember when I took the bus up to my father's place in Sandviken and as we passed Gavle I could see how cozy the homes were and how they all had a lamp and flowers in their windows. The light from the lamps and not seeing any blinds covering up the windows really created a nice ambiance from the outside. I thought for myself that this is something I really miss seeing living in Canada, and it seems to be a Scandinavian design. I want to build window sills for my windows in the dining and living room so I can decorate them with flowers, candles, and a lamp. I still want to be able to put down my blinds as they keep my place cool during the summer.
