Reading Spaces: Window Seat With Storage

The only thing better than a window seat is a window seat with storage. Because if you’re anything like me, you’re probably sneaking books into the house while your significant other is away and playing dumb when he asks why the pile on the floor is getting bigger. Or you just have too much stuff in your life and need to read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up like yesterday. Whatever your issue, a window seat with storage is the perfect antidote!

Reading Spaces: Teal Painted Shelves

I really like white and grey. And I mean, I REALLY like it. But there’s just something so pretty about a painted bookshelf! If I could ever be convinced to brighten up my shelves, I might go for something like this beautiful teal. This week’s Reading Spaces is dedicated to gorgeous teal bookshelves!

Reading Spaces: Rainbow Bookshelves

I’ve always liked how it looks to organize spaces by color, whether it’s clothes in the closet or books on the shelves. The fact that the books wouldn’t be organized by title or author doesn’t bother me. I have the Kallax bookshelf from ikea so I’ve loosely organized each cubby by books I’ve read and books I haven’t….and then stacked them like tetris so I can get as many as possible in my bookcase. So, organizing books by color wouldn’t bother me at all! This week’s Reading Spaces feature is dedicated to rainbow bookshelves!

Reading Spaces: Coastal Window Seats

My mom and I have always harbored a not-so-secret desire to come into possession of a house with a window seat. So it’s only fitting that I begin my new series, Reading Spaces, with a round-up of amazing window seats! When I’m not reading or writing, I’m busy with my day job – working in real estate! I see tons of beautiful spaces (and pictures of beautiful spaces) so it seemed like a natural fit to start posting my favorite reading spaces on my blog. All images can be found on Houzz, where you can get information about photo credits, contractors, products, and more. And if you have your own Houzz account, you can follow me too! I hope you enjoy my weekly series, Reading Spaces! For this week’s post, I’ve collected some of my favorite coastal looks – because the only thing better than a book and a window seat, is a book, a window seat, and a view!
