.Things I'm Crushing...WINDOW SEATS.

We have been in our new house for 18 months now and as much as we love everything about it, there are a few things that we would probably change/add next time. (Yep, there will be a next time...maybe in the not too distant future too!)  One of the things we have been talking a lot about is incorporating some cosy areas and we LOVE window seats.  A comfy place to stretch out and read, nap or play.  I love the streaming natural light and the fun that can be had with cushion combinations.  Such a great way to incorporate a bit of extra seating in the house without having to invest in any furniture either!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Don't these images make you want to curl up with a good book and read the day away?!

I love window seats too! We've been thinking about about adding one under the double window in our master bedroom. We don't have as great natural light as those pictures do because of all the big trees on our property but I'd still love to have a window seat
(or two or three!) in our house.

Loved looking at these great designs. We are looking to put one of these in the extension we are planning. So many options.

Ahh I am so jealous right now! They looks so amazing! I wish we had a window seat in this little apartment because it would just be perfect :D

Oh these photos are gorgeous! I love that the first living area doesn't have a TV. It would mean uninterrupted reading time (aside from kids etc :-)

Such gorgeousness - I love the look of a window box. Now to find a good book and plant myself in one...

I never knew how desperately I needed a window seat until I saw this fabulous collection. ;) Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!
