It is truly an unfortunate thing that there is no room in my home that could currently accommodate a proper window seat. Where the windows are large enough, they are far too high up. Sure, I could find a tall bench and place it under a window, complete with plenty of soft, punched pillows, but it’s not really the same thing. A real window seat has storage underneath, and is a quiet, sturdy place to relax and read or watch the world.
Someday The Beard and I are going to do all sorts of interesting things to our little Cape, but for now I have to be content posting pics here of all the things that float my boat. Perhaps you like window seats as much as I do? If so, you’re going to love the following pics.
Love the lamp, love the view. I have no clue where this is, but I want to believe it’s in one of those cities that feels more like a town. Maybe somewhere by the water? I’m ready to move in.
Wouldn’t this make a boss home office? When you got tired of working at your rustic little writing table, you could retire to the window seat to read a book. Or a trashy magazine.
A mini window seat could fit right into a cottage or the corner of a bigger domicile, just to make things a cozier. Maybe a kid’s room, since a kid would be small enough to curl right up in it.
Don’t think you have to put a window seat along a straight window! This curved window seat would be so amazing at a party for conversation in the round.
A window seat in the kitchen is sweet (you could pull a table right up to it) but I really included this pic for the color. That blue is to die for! (via)
