A reading nook is a wonderful place to unwind after a busy day; an escape from the world where you can be in your own company in a luxurious setting. And the best part is that you can have your very own reading nook no matter how big or small your home is. Here’s how to create a space that is perfect for you.
Comfort is key
Decorate the space with comfort and quiet reflection in mind: a chair so plush that you can sink into it, with a small table in easy reach where you can place your book or magazine. Finish off the area with a good reading light and adorn the wall with stimulating art to enhance the mood.
Audi Snÿman from Audi Snÿman Interior Design says, “A reading nook combines comfort, light and seating that invites escape. Using plush sofas, for deep immersion into a story, an ottoman, for those straight-backed cliff-hangers or a conventional chair, to just sit, book in hand, or staring into space.”
A wonderful chair for a reading nook is a round swinging chair. Accompanied by a soft cushion, it enhances the feeling of relaxation. Alternative options include a bench, a beanbag or a sofa – choose a fabric that’s soft and warm and comfortable. If choosing leather, remember to combine with textures and interesting scatter cushions to create a layered effect and a feeling of comfort.
