Curling up with a great book on a snowy day while watching the flakes fall gently to the ground sounds like my idea of heaven. But, if your home isn’t blessed with a beautiful original millwork, bookcases, and a cozy window seat, you can still get this charming look. Because it’s easy to fake it.
For example, center a small loveseat, bench, or hope chest under the window, flank with tall, freestanding bookcases and… voila. Instant character.
If you’re looking for a more built-in look, bookcases can be mounted to the wall. Use matching cabinets for the seat. And, finish the entire space with wood trim (paint in a bold hue or simple white unifies unmatched pieces). It’s a built-in look at a fraction of the price of custom woodworking.
Not sure where to start? IKEA bookcases are an incredibly affordable option (the BILLY wonderfully adaptable to any décor and is my personal fave, but there are many styles from which to choose).
Accessories complete the picture. Don’t forget to add a small table (for cocoa, naturally), a warm throw, plushy pillows, and of course, loads and loads of wonderful books.
I’ve included some amazing images for inspiration. I think a cozy window seat makes the ideal spot for dreaming on a snowy winter day, don’t you?
