I don't LOVE the rug. but I think the green curtain, built-in shelves filled with books and the (presumably) sliding ladder are wonderful. Its missing a fire place, lots of cozy blankets and an oriental rug!
Put Wasted Space To Work Transform a plain wall into a storage and display showcase by adding stacks of open shelves or cutting out the drywall to create a recessed niche. Add a display shelf above the kitchen window and cup hooks below upper cabinets.
Delightful little corner with splashes of color with small window seat below small hinged window, nice built-in bookcase, art on the wall in the recessed area & a comfortable reading chair with light. Love the bookcases
