I recently posed a question to the "Good Questions" editor at Apartment Therapy, and they posted it for their readers to answer. There are some great suggestions here, but I might as well share this design dilemma with you guys too. Here's the sitch:
Q: My family is currently building a summer home on the island of Kefalonia, Greece, and it's almost done. Right now we're slowly acquiring furniture from the States, loading it into a shipping container, and planning to send it off. We have most of the spaces covered, but aren't really sure what to do with the stairwell nook.Do you have any suggestions?
As soon as you walk through the front door, it's to your right. When standing there, you have a great view into the living room and a view of the sea. The problem is that it's pretty tight. Not sure if we should put a plant, a reading nook, a gallery of prints and artwork? Thanks in advance for any insight, and sorry for the unsightly construction photos!
