How would you cut in these windows? (pics)


Typical S Cal tract home - drywall window sills.

We are painting the room in "Whole Wheat" by Sherwin Williams. The vinyl windows are white, but my wife and I are disagreeing about what color the surface immediately surrounding the window should be - see pic

Generally it gets painted the same as the wall color, in this case the wheat color, but you can do it however you want. You could use an accent color if you want, neither the white nor the wheat.
