I used colours that complemented the ones used in the stairway to make a simple window seat cushion and a throw. A small piece of foam and an old throw is all you need. This throw was bought for 50p (less than £1.00) from Ikea’s discarded baskets. The colours are beautiful and are a perfect match for our landing/stairs. Half an hour later we had a window seat, where the kids sit and listen to music or just chat with each other.
