Ahh…window seat inspiration

I had great fun researching the topic for the inspiration post today-all about window seats.  What I love about window seats is that they serve several purposes-you can use it for storage, extra seating, prettying up a room or to maximise the sunlight in the room.  I have a window seat in my current house and I always love sitting there watching nature while sipping my cuppa coffee.

Here is some inspiration to hopefully inspire you to do something similar:

Above: This window seat serves a more practical purpose, allowing two people to sleep on the beds tucked away.  This could be great for a kid’s room. Source: Sortrature

Above:  If you’re short on space, why not use the window seat for seating at the dining room table?  Source: Inspiration Online (this is a great post-go check it out!)

Above:  I just love the colours and textures that they have used in this window seat.  The dove grey and stripes and different types of natural fabrics look really inviting.  The studs on the cushion also add another interesting dimension.  Source: Maegan Swabb

Above: The colours used in this window seat are great!  What’s nice is that when you get bored you can easily change it, because it’s just a matter of a few pillows.  It doesn’t have storage underneath, but could make for a great socializing area.  Source: Maegan Swabb

Above: I absolutely love Mediterranean countries, and this window seat would certainly fit in there, and definitely reminds me of my holidays to Croatia and Turkey.  This would be best suited for a hot climate.  Source: Sortrature

Above:  This window seat is great for helping to make the kitchen the heart of the home.  Fitting right in a country-style kitchen, it allows conversation to flow easier between cook and guest.  It also allows a better view out the beautiful sash windows.  Just love it!  Source: Sortrature

Above: In order to really highlight the window and bring focus to it, frame the window with two drops of dramatic curtains, just like in this picture.  This will also allow you to close the curtains for a more intimate window seat, and if you want to close the windows up at night.  Source: Yours personally
