Summer memories linger as we cozy up to Fall...
I snapped this preview of the living room nook as we finalized the finishing touches at Salt Marsh.
I admit to a great fondness for window seats.
But they take a bit of planning to make them truly comfortable.
SECRETS OF A COMFY WINDOW SEAT
Many window seats look nice, but are too shallow to actually enjoy.
This seat is BIG. At one twin mattress wide by two long, it's designed for serious lounging, and extra overnight guests.
The angle of back support is key, whether built-in or from luxurious pillows.
I find that 18-20" off the floor, including the seat cushion, is best.
Window sill height relative to seat should be considered for enjoying the view.
Personal preference matters. Choose a plump down-filled seat or a firmer wrapped cushion.
This version is a gorgeous French mattress.
