Would make a terrific mudroom entrance --- hooks for jackets, baskets for hats/mittens/hiking gear, etc. A bench to put on/take off shoes. The corner windows are a nice touch. The room has such a warm feeling to it.
Bahamas home of interior decorator India Hicks, decorated in French Caribbean style. To achieve this look, use elegantly curved dark wood furniture, decorate with quirky island touches such as shelf of straw hats, rattan birdcage.
Love the windows. At the Manhattan apartment of designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent, a solarium-style window fills the kitchen with natural light. DESIGNER: Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent PHOTOGRAPHER: Douglas Friedman
