8 Ideas for Creating the Perfect Reading Nook
While the most avid reader can curl up just about anywhere with a good book, wouldn’t you rather have a special place to read the afternoon away in a cozy reading nook of your own? With the craziness of life, it can be pure joy to sit down with a good book and escape for an hour or two…or three. But if your space lacks, well…space and you can’t find that perfect place to read, look no further. Here are a few great ideas that will guide you toward creating your perfect haven of literature.
Utilize a Cozy Closet
Imagine this: a built-in bench with overstuffed pillows and a wall mounted reading lamp tucked into a cozy closet. Doesn’t that sound much better than stacks of dusty boxes and clothes that haven’t been worn since side ponytails were in style? And for an extra added touch, decorate with a box of Don de Fleurs® preserved roses in any color to match your desired décor. A relaxing purple. A Soothing yellow. A calming pink. And with our roses that last up to a year, you’ll surround yourself in the decadent, sweet smell of real roses whenever you settle in with a good book and cup of tea. Photo Source: Pretty Handy Girl
Use Empty Wall Space
With a few well-placed bookcases to frame the space and a blank wall, you can create a reading nook without having an actual nook. A bit of decoration, some soft pillows and perhaps a few roses on the shelves to create ambiance and voilà. Out of nowhere, a reading nook doth appear.
A Well-Lit Corner
Without purpose, corners are often left undecorated and lonely looking. What exactly do you do with the corner of a room anyway, right? Well, here’s an idea. If you have a sun-drenched corner, consider adding a comfy little chair, a reading light, and a table for your cup of tea (and a box of roses) and you’ve just created your own reading space.
