Bookcases Around A Window

via
I love this window treatment and I used it myself in my last house. If you surround a window with bookcases, you get the illusion that the walls of the house are very thick as in a stone house. It gives you a deep windowsill too which I love. The bookcases in this photo are the perfect size. Not too wide so the shelves won't sag from the weight of the books.

Yes, I've always loved this type of window treatment also. I've seen it done with the window wide enough so that there is a window seat or even cushion on which to lie and read by the window.

This would be a great idea for my sister who has more books than bookshelves to put them on. If you were to se her home she has bookshelves above door moldings and every nook and cranny she could find. No need to go to the library!

And, don't you love the obscure lights mounted on the ceiling and directed toward the books.
