W e were discussing our dream home over at the Adgitize forum and as usual, I made references to my requirement of cozy window seats. I would like several in the house. Marguerite’s room must have one and hopefully it could be one of her favorite spots growing up, a place where she could observe the street below and the skies above, where she could bunch up a few pillows behind her back and get comfy while reading great books… Anyway, window seats are a lovely feature in a room too. They are usually bigger than the ordinary window, so they let a lot of light in. You can dress them very prettily with sweet pillows, an heirloom afghan at the ready for rainy afternoons, delicate drapery framing easily adjustable blinds (these would probably have to be made to measure blinds too). I can also see these window seats framed by tall book cases. Maybe the seat itself could have shelves underneath that hold games, magazines, picture albums, etc. I think that’s a pretty good spot for a fierce game of scrabble or chess. Clue, backgammon, checkers, etc. too, but no Playstation or Nintendo. I have a sort of rule about handheld video games – which is I don’t want them in my home (that doesn’t sound like a rule). I’m very prejudiced against them. Between playing a video game and daydreaming, I think the former is more of a waste of time. I have a rebel against this rule too: my techie husband.
