For the past couple of years I have carried a USB stick in my purse at all times JUST INCASE I saw a gorgeous picture. The world wide web is huge and I know I would have a hard time finding the pictures again if I needed them in the future (of course, speaking from experience), so I have the compulsive personality of collecting pictures online with my USB. Now, even though this habit sounds crazy, I have accumulated a ton of pictures I love & would like to incorporate into my future home.
One inspiration I have for my future home is a gorgeous and comfy window seat. Window seats just scream relaxation. They also give off that welcoming vibe, which I think is very important in a home. A window seat says, "come, sit and stay a while". You can enjoy your morning tea wrapped up tightly in a knitted blanket, cuddle with your family on a cold Winter night or grab your favourite book and fall asleep. Window seats are a dream come true for me.
Here are some pictures of window seats I have collected. I believe they can also be found on Pinterest. I think I might have to do a post all about Pinterest. I am loving that site, however I'm still awaiting my official invitation to join.
A great use of space. A window seat on the landing of a staircase. (LOVE the California Shutters too!)
Love the fabric on this window seat & all the pillows!
Another great use of space. A book shelf!
Window seats add seating to a family room.
God, I love window seating in a kitchen. What a welcoming kitchen.
So country chic & nautical.
Please tell me you agree with the look of a window seat. Do you have any inspiration pictures?
Also, here is what I'm wearing today. It's casual Friday in our office (which is at least 15-20 degrees cooler than it is outside). I'm going out for a friends 30th birthday tonight so I knew I would be changing into something a bit more fancy in the evening, so toning it down for work was right up my alley!
