the romantic view
The farm window decorated with geraniums is the epitome of countryside bliss.
Once the geranium was a household plant whose smell banished all sorts of unwanted bugs. Today, degraded to ornamental use, it keeps the cliché of harmonious village life alive. The urban environment is dominated by air-conditioned mirror glass facades framed in aluminium. Those who are underrepresented in this aesthetic or who feel this view too impersonal are recommended the Romantic View. The emotional window within a window. Planted with geraniums or kitchen herbs, decorated with dried flowers or cacti, a window for the individual, personal view of the world.
