Window Seats Throughout the Home

Growing up I had a window seat in my bedroom and loved it! It had storage underneath, which was great for giving me extra room beyond my closet space. It is fun to sit on the seat and gaze out the window. Built-ins give a space customizable seating options. Also, the piece of furniture looks like it is made for the space.

Craftsman Dream House in Venice: Redfin: I am finding that more homes are utilizing casual dining areas in the kitchen versus sitting at a formal dining room table. I love how the striped fabric on the built-in bench breaks up the rich wood tones of the kitchen and visually separates the space.
