Grille/ window seat - I see the name of the company where you purchased the grille for the windown seat but do you mind telling me the name of the design you went with and the color. Also could I please have the dimensions of the window seat itself. Beautiful room.

From www.coverscreen.co.uk BZ-IC Decorative Grille - Inner Circular, Bronze. As you can see, the bookcases meet the window frame, and the window seat widens to create more of a comfortable lounge. Width approximately 42". Depth approximately 32". Thank you for the compliment!

Loved it, too! Found it in a Robert Allen book, then was told it was discontinued, no stock. Called a local fabric showroom (Zimmans, in the Boston area) and luckily they had it. This was two years ago, so very doubtful that there is any remaining. If you want to look into it, call Zimmans in Lynn, MA, and speak to Stephanie, referring to this photo.

Love the grilles! Would you mind giving the company's website? - Would you mind sharing the ordering info for the removeable grilles? Love them! Does this UK company have a website?

yes! here is the link: http://www.brass-grilles.co.uk/
I found there to be much more choice, and better quality than what I could find locally.

What kind of heating system did you have to work around? - I have forced hot water by oil baseboards on almost all exterior walls. I'd love to put in bookcases, but I've been struggling with the "how" of it!

Thanks! One more thing: how did you determine how far off the floor to set the bottom shelf? Is there a code requirement, or did it just tie in with the bench seat? Looks like it's somewhere between 12" and 18" above the floor.

I had the bookcases start at 14" above finished floor to allow for a nice generous 4" thick seat cushion.
This allows more than enough space for air circulation....did not research code on this.

What makes a house a home (idea book) especially when you rent and can't replace the basic beige provided? People mention: family photos or other art, books, Here's a way to provide character with a window seat without the 'bay' architecture. Side lamps, bookcases, art, and pillows, throws are great too.
