Clippings from various books and magazines of interesting ideas for Eric and Sylvia's future house.
|Corner windows, with built in window seats||Where there's not a lot of space, this serves well as a staircase. Apparently the design is from Thomas Jefferson.|
|This is my favorite eating nook picture. I really like the windows on three sides, and the broad windowsills. The seats don't look that comfortable, though.||I like the simple lines here, efficiently enclosing the space.|
|Fresh and sunny corner eating area, right next to a door allowing easy access to the outdoors. I like the close proximity to the kitchen as well. Who needs a dining room?||If you can't have a great view, then having a private patio like this would be great. I think the plants would be pretty essential.|
|This is part of the same house. I like the french doors to the patio area||Having an enclosed patio like this along the side of a house makes the outdoors seem a part of the house, and increases the useable space without much extra expense.|
|Simple, clean lines, corner windows, lots of light, and access to the outdoors are what attract me to this one.||I love rooftop patios!|
|Like the idea of varnished plywood as flooring. Economical, simple.||The idea of a skycraper in the woods is appealing...also the idea of each floor having lots of privacy.|
|Another charming rooftop patio.||Why do I like this one? The clean lines, and also because there's muliple access points to a very simple, elegant deck area.|
