Love this idea. Bring a flood of light into a dreary basement with a terraced window well. You also get an emergency escape route, planting beds and a view. Build this well as part of an egress window project or simply landscape an existing window well.
Open shelving is a great way to keep a space feeling open and airy. We love the stacked stone focal wall, it gives the space a little bit of a rustic feel. We also like using lighting to accent the wall and provide the correct task lighting. The lights also provide great accent lighting for the items on the shelves!
