I’ll take the seat by the window

I have a fascination with window seats.  For me, design is not just about something looking pretty-  it also has to serve a purpose.  The window seat does just that:  it’s the perfect combo of form and function.  When we finally take the plunge and purchase our own little piece of heaven, I’m determined to have one.  But until then I will have to get my fix by searching the web!


A cute lil spot where you can curl up and read a book, or just relax and enjoy the view.  What could possibly be better? (PS. that little wall sconce was a fabulous idea!)


I love how this space combines the window seat with floor to ceiling built-in bookcases.  This is the perfect reading nook!!


Another great quality: since they’re built in, they don’t take up much space!


I’m loving this view.


This great little window seat was born after design studio remodel in Detroit, and was later featured on Design Sponge. I love how it embraces the view, while the drapery softens the space at the same time.  And the table makes it a great area to gather over food and conversation.
