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

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - CONTENTS -

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.
