Curl up in a cosy nook with a hot drink and your book of the moment – winter is here and it’s time to get comfy in the ultimate reading corner.
Create a reading corner for the kids
Audi Snÿman, owner of Audi Snÿman Interior Design, offers her advice on how you can create a cosy reading space for your kids: “For children’s reading corners, consider using different toys to decorate the space. Include stuffed animals, toy cars, a flashlight, or a fairytale-inspired reading haven – the stuff of any booklover’s dreams. Add a reading space to a home office for children to cuddle up and read while mum or dad works. It will also hold an extra special place in the heart of a child. The entire space should quite literally bring the novel to life. Creatively using the space in a child’s room is a way of stimulating an interest in reading. One idea would be to repurpose spare cupboards, by removing the doors, adding a padded bench seat across the width of the closet, and then adding a wall-mounted light fixture. Built-in drawers underneath the seat and shelf space above mean the cupboard still offers storage. This is a perfect place for a child to curl up and get lost in books.”
