Nothing like a seat by the window to curl up on, with your favorite book and a steaming mug of coffee.
Although this might seem too idyllic a setting to be true, it’s quite possible to create this nook in your own home. All you need is a window with a view and a few cushions of varying sizes.
Let’s have a peek at a few such window seating ideas to draw inspiration from.
1. There are many benefits that a window seat offers. Top it up with plump pillows, and there it is, your favorite place to soak up some sun, read, nap, chat or simply lose yourself gazing at the view outside!
2. The window seat here offers beautiful views of the great outdoors and is L-shaped which makes it a great nook for easy conversations.
