A Nook of your Own Create a cosy window chill zone
Create a cosy spot in front of any window with this easy DIY project
PICK YOUR PIECES To make an instant alcove, nestle a bench (or even a sturdy, low cabinet) that’s slightly shorter and wider than your window between a pair of matching shelves or dressers. MAKE IT COMFY Top it with a cushion and pillows made of indoor/outdoor fabric. These materials are durable and won’t fade as fast from the sun in an area that’s exposed to a lot of light. ADD WINDOW TREATMENTS Long curtains can pool awkwardly behind pillows or cabinets. Instead, hang a Roman blind or horizontal blinds, which save space and are easy to adjust.
