This white-walled window seat gets a jolt of color, pattern and texture from a fun array of pink pillows. A custom Roman shade blends with the walls, keeping the space crisp and clean. A reading lamp and built-in shelves add function to the space.
Sleek, modern rooflines and windows stand in sharp contrast to the earthiness of the front door surround and lush landscaping at this Eugene, Ore., home. A Japanese maple offers a pop of color against the gray exterior.
This hillside canyon retreat brings nature inside with this stunning, modern window. The outdoor space easily feels like part of the home with views of the mature trees and lush landscaping just outside.
A custom Roman shade almost disappears above this modern window seat, keeping the space clean and crisp while lowering to block light when needed. A built-in shelf, wall sconce and custom cushion topped with pillows are all functional touches that make this reading nook a dreamy space for a young girl.
Walls of windows surround this outdoor space, too, and so allow the owners to appreciate views of the courtyard from almost every room. With landscape lights right in the water, the pond becomes an especially stunning focal point.
