away room thoughts
slider door, high interior windows, floor to ceiling bookspaces
barn door with safety feature
small nook this one is on a staircase but I love the small space with built in nook. Could put in outlet in also for a reading light. Small scale.
Same idea as the staircase nook on a bigger scale. What I don't like about this one is all the wasted floor space.
I love to live with books. This is a thought both for the nook in the away room and also a built in feature anywhere in the house.
The clutter in here is a bit much but I LOVE the light fromt he glass ceiling. This is close to what I was thinking about with the high windows. Also the books over the door frame are very cool. I love the idea of using the walls as display for books.
another example of the door type I'd like. This one is in a kitchen but I'd like something close to it in the away room.
Here is a great picture of the type of nook I was envisioning. Small unobtrusive.
This is a nook on a bigger scale, the staircase alone is too much for our room. But I love the skylights and ceiling
