Pretty space. Love the window seat, shelves and chairs. Sophisticated but not stuffy.

Definitely need to build some storage in both bathrooms. This is awesome because it fulfills my obsession with beaded board, without turning a modern style room into cottage style. My perfect combination of both.

What a view! Like the little bench seat under the window in what would otherwise just be the end of a corridor.

I love this DIY bench seat. I especially love how the shelves on the end face towards each other instead of towards the room.

I could enjoy many a peaceful afternoon sitting here.... (Photo Felix Forest via The Design Files)
