Take Advantage of Sunlight

Greet the day from this sunny breakfast nook. Set off from the kitchen, the bay windows not only pour in ample natural light, but also create a pretty backdrop to the vintage-inspired dining table. Watercolor-inspired botanical valances soften the bay windows with a charming contemporary vibe.

Sit Back in Style

Bay windows provide an extra bump-out of space for making all your own. This light-filled nook in the master bedroom is the perfect spot for a duo of chaise lounges. Encircled by windows topped in contemporary Ikat Roman shades, the seats make for the ultimate relaxation or reading spot.
