    Install faux Shutters and add a Window box to plant flowers in.

    I agree with Vera S, if you type in shutter above many ideas and DIY will show up. Good luck!

    In my opinion I would just install a flower box.

    Yep, shutters and a window box would really set it off.

      Love this idea , gather some pallets , these make lovely shutters at a low cost , could also work for your flower box! Sanded and paint white with the gray would be lovely !

    Yes to flower box, and/or shutters, maybe even a small awning, you could put beautiful flowers on a trellis on either side or even around the window.

    I agree with the majority, shutters and a flower boxes, or bolder, wider trim

      I personally like the idea of shutters in combination with wider, bolder trim but the other ideas are excellent. Pick what you like.

    Whew! It took me some time to find a way to get this to you, but I think maybe you can pull up the link to a window dress out that does not require anything but straight cuts! It is stunning! And should be simple to do! It is just different lengths of stacked boards! http://www.funkyjunkinteriors.net/2014/01/how-to-make-a-farmhouse-window-with-moulding.html At least look at this!

    How about a garden trellis on one side with a flowering vine? There are also paint options as painting a mural, shutters or window boxes as an alternate to other suggestions.
