Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.”

Kris Likes… Window Seats

“He left the drapes open, watched the lights of the cars and of the fast food joints through the window glass, comforted to know there was another world out there, one he could walk to anytime he wanted.” ― Neil Gaiman, American Gods

I am in the middle of designing a window seat for a client and I thought I would share some of my inspiration.  There is something about a cozy window nook with a beautiful view.  The space needs to feel intimate and cozy … a secluded space that is still a part of the room.  There are a lot of elements to consider when building a window seat.  Do you want shelving?  Storage?  Lighting? You have to consider how you want to frame the space, how deep you want the space and most importantly, how to make the space as comfortable and functional as possible.  Stylistically these window seats are very different but there were elements in each one that I was able to draw from and incorporate into my design.  Enjoy!  xx K

Happy New Year from KRIS Likes…..

vintage-new-years-eve-fashion-party-streamers“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

– William Arthur Ward

“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun.  It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for it’s existence against the winds and rain and scorching sun.” – Napoleon Hill
