Take a Seat

On chilly fall days like today, all I want to do is to curl up with a good book, a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and read the afternoon away. If I had the luxury of doing so in one of these window seats or reading nooks, all the better. There's just something so cozy and peaceful about these beautiful, confined spaces that makes me want to kick off my shoes, grab a soft blanket and nestle in for a lazy afternoon. In fact, these images are so cozy and peaceful, that I won't spoil the mood with any more unnecessary verbiage -- sometimes it's nice to sit back and soak in the pretty, no?

I'm 100% with you - I love window seats, especially this time of year! It's such a cozy little nook to watch the world from.

I love them all - especially the deep one with red walls and the gorgeous light hanging in it. And the ones with built in bookshelves - brilliant. Thank you for sharing these images - now I want to find a place to build one into our house! hehe! Hope you have a wonderful weekend Averill!

I just discovered your blog + I'm not sure how I wound up here. But, I'm really glad I did! I just posted on nooks yesterday, but I love your images even more. Great blog!

Ooo. Nice. Very handy to have the bookshelf right next to the window seat. I also like that grey pillow in the Canadian Home image. I suppose some creativity with a grey stripe could turn into a pillow like that.
