Remodelista's recent post on alcove beds was inspiring; depicting innovative space usage, emphasizing the modern trend toward comfort, and making me feel an afternoon nap coming on. Here are some of my favorites from the post, with a few of my own window seat and sleeping nook finds added in:
A modern bed at the Hotel Aire de Bardenas in Spain (from Remodelista).
A built-in reading niche by Piet Boon (from Remodelista).
A built-in bed in Minneapolis, via Dwell (from Remodelista).
A window seat hideaway found in Ideal Home UK, via Dwellers without Decorators.
The perfect place to hide from the world.
As seen on The Green Door.
Guest room alcove beds from Posh Posh.
The two photos above feature a living room I designed in Atlantic Beach, NY and a close-up of the window seat lounge.
A cozy spot for reading and afternoon tea that I designed for a Manhattan client.
