Birding Nook at Potic Cottage
As I clip decorating ideas, inevitably I pull a picture which includes bookshelves. This pic from Dwell Magazine, however, is truly unique-- almost a book 'womb'. In a NYC apartment of 240 sq ft, what you don't have in space, you must compensate for in clever ideas.Those hidden spaces, used more often for storage than habitation, are rife with possibilities. It reminds me of the birding nook James created for the kids at Potic Cottage. Now I'm tempted to add a few bookshelves in the far corner.
