Have a stairway landing? Create a cozy nook!

This is one of my favorite places to sit and flip through a magazine or book.  Just an upstairs opening that overlooks the living room, a space that could otherwise be not very inviting.  I hung a single panel of thick lush window treatment to the side of this upstairs opening to the lower level just to help define the space.  A comfortable chair and accessories that compliment the colorful pallet come together to create a nice space to rest in an otherwise unassuming hallway.
