One of my greatest passions? Books- reading them + collecting them + sharing them. I’ll read anywhere, but how fun would it be to read in a cozy little reading nook? Here are some of my favorites. If you are designing and building a new home be inspired to add a book nook. There are also great ideas for how to use your current spaces like under the stairs, repurposing a closet or styling a corner.
Under the Stairs
What a great use of space!! Whether building bookcases under the stairs and setting a chair nearby or framing the space out and adding a mattress or cushion to curl up on. These ideas turn an area often wasted into a cozy place to read. And what better place to read Harry Potter books!
Take the doors off that hall closet and think of it in a new way.
In A Corner
What I love most are how doable all these ideas are. All you need is a bookcase, a chair and a lamp. Instant reading corner.
Around a Window
So much beautiful light comes in by the window, what a perfect spot to read. Build bookcases under the window or on the sides and add a window seat full of pillows.
Encouraging kids to read is so important. Give them a space all their own surrounded by books.
Now all I want to do is go grab my book and curl up and read!
