My house has two tall, thin windows. One at the top of the stairs and one at the bottom. After a couple of months of wondering what would look best in the space, I decided to buy two white orchid plants. They are long stemmed plants and look great in white pots against the windows. To me there are perfectly framed by the window frames. The above photograph is a close-up of the flower at the bottom of my stairs, taken early on a Saturday morning using natural backlight.
