With this nasty nor'easter bearing down on us, I'm planning on hunkering down and reading a good book tonight. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, I like to be completely, totally comfortable. Here's some inspiration for creating your own reading nook...
All you really need is an armchair, a place to put up your feet and a good light.
Or you could go really basic and just use some floor cushions and pillows...
I just love how these folks have used up the empty space under the stairs. It serves so many purposes - day bed, book storage, and, of course, an amazing reading nook!
Here's another daybed, but this time it's tucked into a window filled corner.
I recently conducted a design workshop and I included this picture as amazing bookcase/reading corner inspiration. The bookcases are from Ikea!
Once this nasty storm passes, be sure to head to your local bookstore to add to your library! I'm lucky enough to live in an area with an amazing bookstore, River Road Books. For my local friends, you have to check them out! You can always find great recommendations from their friendly staff. They're at 759 River Road in Fair Haven.
Okay - I have to go get my chores done so I can relax tonight!
Until next time!
