When you can't be outside–because it's raining or snowing or just way, way too cold–sitting by the window (with the heat on) has got to be the next best thing. A window seat is an affordable and achievable little luxury you can squeeze into almost any home to make the most of a cozy night in.

If you have an existing ledge or feature by the window, all you need is a throw and a couple pillows to make it a small escape. If not, plop a low bench (or a sturdy cabinet or bookcase) right below the window and give it a little bit of soft texture. To show you how it's done, here is a little sampling of spaces that look like a comfortable spot to settle in with tea and a great book.
