Who doesn’t love settling in a cozy little corner of the house, in a warm and relaxing atmosphere when we want to enjoy peaceful activities such as reading a novel, working through a stack of magazines or crosswords in a newspaper, or even writing in a journal …
Having these little moments is so important, and everyone uses these small moments of calm for themselves in different ways – some to escape the present day, others to create other realities, other perspectives and to occupy themselves away from their screens during their free time. That is why we find it so important to create these types of cozy reading corners for clients. This dedicated space essentially depends on the available space at home. It can take the form of a separate, dedicated room such as an office or a library, or it might reside in a corner of a bedroom or living room. With a little creativity, it’s easy to fit it into even the tiniest of spaces.
Styling your reading nook
STEP ONE: A COMFORTABLE CHAIR.
Start by choosing a cozy chair, one that you can comfortably sink into, relax and read.
STEP TWO: A SIDE TABLE.
Opt for a side table, large enough to hold your drink, a candle and a little decorative piece to set the scene.
STEP THREE: A LIGHT SOURCE.
Add some height with a floor lamp to make the look effortlessly charming and practical for a late-night reading session.
STEP FOUR: A PLANT.
Plants lift our spirits and improve our moods, so don’t forget to add a simple vase of some blooms or greens in your cozy set up, or even a floor plant if you have enough space.
STEP FIVE: A WARM THROW.
Finally match your chair with a soft throw to bring in some color, texture and extra warmth; making it feel lived in.
