One of my favorite spaces in our house is our window seat that I designed and my dad built. The window seat was installed in March so I have not gotten to change it up for fall or Christmas. Until now. It is mid-August and there is a slight chill in the air in the evenings here in WI (despite it still being grossly humid during the day). Naturally, the bin of faux pumpkins, fall pillow covers and wheat were whispering my name. Plus, I like to switch things up a lot and I was getting bored with looking at summer version of the window seat. It was time for a fall window seat update.
Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of having a window seat. First in my parent’s house and then in my future house. I was obsessed with little nooks and hidden staircases and mystery. I can’t see a way to incorporate a hidden staircase in my house, but I have the perfect place for a window seat. I have wanted to put a window seat in this area since the day we moved in, 11 years ago.
