Happy Wednesday babes! The past few weeks I have been intensely researching tons of home decor tips and home inspiration from Pinterest! (You will find out why in the next couple months!!!) Ever since Todd and I got married, we have been looking into buying our first home! I have ALWAYS wanted a cozy nook for relaxing and a spot that inspires me to sit down, relax, and read a book. I want an area in the house that I can regularly visit that I know will always feel serene and comfortable.
Today, I am featuring some essential tips and decor items that will help create the perfect corner reading nook. A reading nook can be added to just about any spot in the house because it really doesn’t take up much space.
Find a cozy corner within your home that can fit a small accent chair, a side table, and a small rug. Those are the 3 biggest essentials to creating your nook. You want to be comfortable, but you also want to create a spot that you love so much you will be drawn in to relax awhile.
Find a location somewhere in your home that allows quite a bit of natural light. The more light, the better, in my opinion. Spaces with an abundance of natural sunlight will be more inviting for you to sit down and relax for awhile. As our lives get busier and busier, it can be difficult to find the time to relax, but it is extremely important for us to decompress every so often.
Find a quiet a place within your home that you will not be bothered easily. If you are constantly being slammed with questions from your kids or hearing loud noises outside, you will not be able to relax much. And let’s face it, that’s the point right?
Grab an ULTRA-comfy chair!!! No one wants to sit and read in an uncomfortable chair. Even if it is the cutest acrylic chair you have ever seen, you will want to have the most comfortable chair this time. Find something cozy that you can easily sink into and get lost in your book.
Speaking of cozy, find the softest blanket around and get ready to cuddle with a great book. This will be your new favorite spot in the house!
Relaxation here you come!
