Kitchen

This cozy reading nook was added to this new kitchen design so our client would have a place to showcase, and read, her vast collection of cookbooks. We always consider practicality and function when designing, so we used an indoor/outdoor fabric on the cushion for easy cleanup…accidents happen.

Window Manufacturer? - Hello, We are very interested in what company the window came from? Please let us know. Those are hard to find, for me at least. Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Food is a basic necessity, but fulfilling that need can be a very creative, satisfying and indulgent pursuit. One of my favorite things to do before making my weekly shopping list is to page through cookbooks and choose one or two new recipes to try. I also spend a lot of time poring over cookbooks before entertaining. A soft place to sit while thinking over delicious things to eat seems like a good ordering of priorities. Even if you don't have a conveniently located window seat, take the time to sit down with your cookbooks if you love to cook.
A thin, long bolster pillow will do the trick too.
Natalie Myers added this to Dreamy Window Seats
This multi-tiered area in a study was well thought-out to both provide seating and a window ledge to serve as a display area.
Your teapot may just add the perfect accessory for your shelves, throwing off a typical book display just enough to make it unique.
Painted wood. The wood built-ins offset the bright white of the window wall and its multi-framed panels.
