Get Inspired: The Power of a Cozy Nook
People underestimate the power of a nook. I always loved touring old chateaus and estates that have a cozy nook in bedrooms and in libraries. So when I see them utilized in modern designs I get inspired. Creating a cozy nook allows for a room to be more functional. It opens up space for endless design possibilities. Design a beautiful window seat for lounging and reading during the day. Or transform a blank wall into a nook with shelves to put your books on display.
How to Create Your Own Reading Nook
Find a cozy corner in your home. Somewhere with enough space for a bench or an accent chair. It needs great natural light. you can add additional lighting for ambiance to set the mood. A long bench with baskets underneath is an easy trick for comfortable lounging and storage space. Your reading nook should have a balance of soft materials, functional storage, calming art, and comfortable throws.
The most important thing a reading nook will need is calmness. You want the space to make feel relaxed and soothed. It should be your personal sanctuary to escape from chaos and dive into a good book….. or scrolling on Instagram LOL.
