As I was wandering through my blog list, I stumbled across a lovely collection of dormer windows that make my dormer windows look decidely sad. Nest Egg's Rachel Halvorson also had some GREAT suggestions for what to do with window seats.
Here are two of my favourites!
I want to curl up and have a nap on this one. Gorgeous! And I love how they've created great additional storage for blankets, books and fun little chotckies. I'm a pack rat and, therefore, a sucker for nooks and nitches in which to stuff odds and ends.

This second one would work very well in our space.
We just have the pesky issue of electric heaters underneath the windows to figure out.
And, last but not least, my favourite half storey dormer photo of all time ever care of the first issue of Lonny Magazine.

*sigh* So pretty! Look at the subtle pattern on the wallpaper! And the hidden storage! And the pops of colour! The only think I'm not so keen on is the diamond pattern on the floor but I think that's only because of the hunter green diamond squares that were painted all over our second floor hardwood.
Okay, we were talking about window seats! Here is another one that is styled very well. This is about the size of the window seat we're installing in our bathroom. Oh, yes, did I mention we're putting in a window seat there? It is already partially installed!
