The Necessity of Reading Nooks
There is even no argument. One simply needs a reading nook. Or any horizontal place that one can use to lie down and read. When I was a child, we converted a storage room for my bedroom. It was the nicest and coziest place. Small with many windows and lots of lots of shelves to hold books and a reading lamp. I even had a small chest where I kept some of the books. It wasn’t anything fancy and I didn’t know a thing about scented candles and throw pillows back then, but I ended up in far more beautiful places. That bedroom was where I discovered Middle Earth and 221B. I really think I must have been the happiest and contented child back then.
So in honor of reading nooks and great literature, here are some designs that I wouldn’t mind applying in my own home.
A great way to save space under the stairs. Better than using it to imprison some poor orphan child who has secret wizard powers. via Furnish Burnish
This is very Moonrise Kingdom and Swiss Family Robinson. via House and Home
Window seats! I wish we had one at home. I love the lanterns. via Design Sponge
Cozy and well lit. via Home Designing
And my favorite:
How Tom Sawyer/Huckleberry Finn-ish. It would be a blast if behind those wooden panels is a secret passageway to the kitchen. via Desire to Inspire
