Put a shelf over a window and use the shelf brackets to hold a curtain rod- genius and beautiful AND gives a completely finished off look. I like the idea of having a shelf over the window in the kitchen or bedroom.
guest bedroom nook that offers guests privacy if you close the sliding door, and is an open, nook-y space otherwise. bookshelves feel off-balance to me, but yay books! Moon to Moon: Hibernation: Cosy bedroom nooks. ---- This would so be my room.
