Home Decor: Reading Nooks

Five Cozy Reading Nooks

Apartment living means awkward small spaces that do not quite have a clear purpose. It is the small nooks and crannies of an apartment that you can creatively transform into your favorite places.  Why not turn these cozy spaces into a quiet place to take a moment to yourself.  All you need is a comfy pillow and the latest best seller for an afternoon of true rest and relaxation. Here are five of our favorite reading nooks.

1. Stair Side Reprieve 

Turn the space around a spiraling staircase into the perfect reading nook. The stark white of the room juxtaposed with the black leather chair and dark wood table make for ideal space to get lost in your latest book. 

2. A Step Up

Old apartments come with unique characteristics like this step. Turn this awkward step into place to read by stacking neutral colored pillows. Add a pop of color with a vase of fresh cut hydrangea. 

3. At An Angle

Angled ceilings can be a challenge. Turning an angled loft space into a reading nook allows for a true tucked away place for a moment of quiet. 

4. Window Seat

A window seat makes for the perfect little space for an afternoon of reading. Make sure to pick the window for the best view for an amazing reprieve. 

5. Bookshelf Bliss

A bookshelf is more than just a place to store your books. For those of us with minimal space to stretch out simply prop up your feet up on your bookshelf.
