      Do you have an extra couch or settee somewhere? It would be neat to put a couch in the bay space, turn your table the other way..... Tessa had that in her house. So cute and unexpected! Add function to an awkward space by transforming a basic bay window.

      Add function to an awkward space by transforming a basic bay or box window into a reading nook. Or furnish an empty corner of the living room with a game table & storage cabinet. These features add value to your home and, when it comes time to sell, will likely resonate with potential buyers. - I wouldn't have the coffee table though...

    Bring the Outdoors In - Change the focus of a room from the fireplace in winter to a beautiful window view in spring, rearranging the furnishings as needed. In this family room all eyes are on the window seat where a creamy yellow and green color palette frames the view. The scheme provides a light touch but a mix of textures—chenille, linen, damask, and wool—adds dimension.

    Shaded Bay: Like the previous slide, this bay window features a built-in seat with storage. Yet here the homeowners opted for fabric shades rather than full draperies. This treatment may be more expensive than full draperies, yet are an attractive alternative to control light and privacy at the window level.
