In the Nook


When I was a little girl my favorite book was The Ring and the Window Seat, I barely remember the story, but I know it forever instilled in me a love for window seats, the dreamy view  from that perch, the quiet solitude, and a sense of whimsy.

Now that I am a “grown up” window seats, and the little hidden spaces and nooks in a home feel calm, quiet, like a sanctuary; similar to how Carrie Bradshaw also feels about “the nook”.

If designing my dream house, I would fill it with hidden spaces, filled with chandeliers, pillows, soft light, and lazy afternoons.
