A window seat with books seems ideal.

Window seat with arched window and built in bookshelves behind. Have the bookshelves facing the room, make the window seat more like a chaise, and this might work for me.

My idea of heaven.

We love everything about this window-filled corner, not to mention the view. The picture window maximizes the view, while the double-hungs give ventilation. We also love the low built-in book cases that have function as window seats.

An interior Japanese garden...seems so zen.

Morrocan vibe

Love the idea of a nook bed. Maybe put it in the living room by the fireplace and not do a Murphy bed at all?

Windows and books are a wonderful combination.
