While looking at floor plans for homes, I noticed several with fairly well-sized dormers. They were illustrated with a chair and that was all. There is so much more opportunity given to this space? Generally on the upper level of a home, these dormers usually are outfitted with windows that offer great views, so do something wonderful about it! Dormers can be a private spot since they are tucked away from the rest of the room they accompany, so a desk space/ reading nook is a perfect idea. The selection above is a collaboration I made of rich plum, champagne, pale lavender and grey. Chaise by Urban Outfitters, Desk by Crate and Barrel, Linen Chair by Overstock, Chandelier and Sconce by Home Depot, Bloom Cushion by Z Gallerie, Plum Cushion by Crate & Barrel, Rectangular Cushion by Room and Board, Glass Pull by CKP, Espirit Rug by Heine.
A very quick sketch to show you how these key pieces can be fitted to carve out a little space for yourself. So find those areas of your home that you don’t use and repurpose to suit your needs or hobbies.
