Any of these writing nooks seem like the perfect haven to hone your art and clarify your thoughts. Some are perhaps cosier than others, some may be more conducive to procrastination, while others are a no-no for tall people. But they all make me dream…

I’d take any of them, my lovely wife seems to think a desk & privacy are luxuries I can’t afford.
The inside/outside one for me! At 5’10” I think I’d better pass on the last one 😉
I’d love the inside outside study, although it would be a tad distracting and might result in a bit of dozing in the sun.
Love the gratuitous library ladder! I blogged about the perfect writing environment here –
I actually find it easier to write in a cafe
Can I have all of those at once, please????????
I’ll be modest this week and just ask if I can put my boots under the table of the first one. Bit of a fraud really, as I’m not deep in writing creative fiction, but I do have to spend a lot of time at my desk doing general research and it is always crucial to have a beautiful tree surrounded view to distract one. I’m clearly needing some intense conversation with a crowd of trees, as most of the rest make me feel quite claustrophobic today – give me trees and a nice big window to gaze at them. I’ll worry about the heating bills/chill factor later, perhaps wishing I’d gone snug. Not to mention it is such a lovely view – unless I am imagining it, it seems there is a narrow window shelf – an excellent, if rather precisely negotiated space, for a couple of cats to lie, long and thin and admire the trees too (catflap would need to be somewhere though)
I agree about the cat shelf or windowsill. Otherwise, how are they going to contribute to our masterpieces (or even book reviews)?
I love the hidden chalet and the inside-outside study.
Oh, my, they all look so wonderful, Marina Sofia! I especially have my eye on the inside/outside study. A nice, snug space, plus light and air, too. What more could one want? *Starts dreaming of where she will put her things*
that inside out study is calling to me….. some of the others seem a bit dark
The inside/out room for me too, although I would always be outside, or at a push the first window one with a better desk. I’m certainly not tall, but the others are a bit dark or pokey for my tastes. The pull-out desk in the pseudo ancient library seems a clever use of space, as long as you have somewhere else to store the stuff you use on the desk.
I suppose I thought the darker ones seemed cosy, although I agree they are probably not kind on the eyes…
Definitely the top one, but I wouldn’t write – I’d just look out of the window and dream…
