I wish that the remodel had allowed for a space like this in the upstairs hallway, but there just wasn't room. I had a window seat in my childhood bedroom, and they just always look so inviting. A favorite by designer Peter Dunham.
This room is a favorite of mine. My favorite elements are the herringbone pattern of the brick inside the fireplace and the slate around the surround, as well as the gray/blue paint. The calming color and uncluttered room is a nice contrast to the helter skelter effect of the books in the shelves.
