Exaggerate the Space
You don’t have to customise furniture or invest in built-ins to have a show-stopping window seat. Here, interior designer Janie Molster slid a settee into the space created by the angled bay windows. Then, she painted the surrounding walls an energetic shade of flamingo pink, perfectly complementing the red stripes and softened by the gray and white curtains that make this little nook eve more intimate.
The Blend In
Though understated and neutral in colour, this living room designed by Tamsin Johnson is bursting with personality, from the three-tiered arc lamp to the beach-y rattan furniture. The widow seat is a great addition to a living-room-family-room hybrid since it blends into the background when not in use (those sculptural spherical pillows help), but also provides a cozy spot when the occupant just feels like hanging out.
Hang a Light
Cameron Ruppert created cohesion with a corresponding duvet cover, throw pillow, and wallpaper. The light blue-gray and greens are ideal for a bedroom and the sloped ceilings around the window seat make it extra cozy. A pedant hanging right above the nook acts as an extra reading light, too.
