Would like to build around the window so we have the image of a window seat and a beautiful window

Another example of window seat. (Also love the ceiling design!) Romantic Linen Cushions from The Linen Works

Built-Ins with base cabinet storage, roll out dvd trays, fluted pilasters with recessed panels, boxed mantle shelf with crown moldings

Custom mantel surround with fluted paneled pilasters, recessed built-in cabinetry, base cabinet storage with pull out DVD trays

You could have this built into the alcove and put the TV on top of the cupboard rather than above fireplace

Livingroom- I like the idea of the mantel height & base cabinet height creating a continuous line across the builtin.

Built ins & contrasting background color

symmetry + built-in cabinet + chevron brick fireplace detail + wood-metal coffee table in classic neutral living room by munger interiors. Very nice off white built in cabinets around an off white fireplace

built ins to love library millwork - I think it's cool that there are actually BOOKS in these bookcases. Imagine that!

Interior Trend: Wood Panelling

Books wedged into bookshelves feels very lived in. deep grey-blue, built-in bookcases with jointed sconces above, herringbone detail in fireplace.love the detail and the color. if we have to have builtins extend to fireplace edge
