CHIC COASTAL LIVING: The Enchanted Home: Dream Beach House & a Giveaway -- the little bench seat with plump cushion and throw pillows is inspired. Cute little reading nook or a place to shed shoes in the entry hall.
I love this idea! Make a bookcase in the door that leads to under stair storage! Old houses often lack closets, I love the idea of preserving home design by incorporating hidden storage in small spaces.
