Window Seat Ideas

Sexy Nerd and I are planning to build a window seat beneath the windows in our dining room. Well, really Sexy Nerd is going to build it while I blog in my pajamas, but I'm still planning to take a chunk of the credit.

Here are some photos I've gathered from various sites for window seat inspiration:


 
I love everything about this room, especially the wall color.


Sexy Nerd hates this photo! Not because of the design, but because I realized when I saw it that we could create this exact space if we (he) moved our washer and dryer upstairs (and built a place for them upstairs, of course).



I've been saving these photos to my computer over the past few years, so I unfortunately don't have links (if you see a photo you recognise, let me know and I'll link it back to where it belongs!) This has taught me the importance of adding my url when I post a photo of my home online (if only it weren't such a pain! Does anyone know of a shortcut for this?)

For our window seat, I'm leaning toward having large baskets for storage underneath, like in the second photo, and a clean, natural finish, possibly without any cushions, like in the last photo. Though, I'm not really sure those two photos combined would result in a pretty window seat.

Which photo is your favorite?
