Guest Blogger - Reading Nooks

Hi all, Mari here from the Arcadian Lighting, a great place to learn about lighting ideas and trends. I'm so happy to be visiting The Cottage of Vinnord. What a lovely place it is! Today, my guest post is about reading nooks, combining two of our favorite things, reading and decorating ideas. When creating these special places for reading, considerations include a comfortable place to sit or recline, pillows for comfort, natural light or lighting fixtures, and of course a relaxing atmosphere. Here are eight of my favorite reading nooks. Please enjoy!

Reading Nooks

A clever use of the sometimes wasted space under a staircase, the soft color palette of this nook creates an inviting place to rest and read a bit. You might add some under cabinet lights if the corner is too dark to read.

Reading Nooks

Up high under the rafters, this white on white bed easily doubles as a reading nook by day. Books and other reading material are kept at the ready on the antique table nearby.

Reading Nooks

What is better than a reading nook? In this space, it's two colorful window seats for reading. The lovely florals and contrasting aqua and deep rose fabrics give this space a happy feel.

Reading Nooks

A dream come true, this sunny vacation getaway nook with an ocean view could not be more perfect. Comfortable and well-lit by a clever swing arm wall light, this very special reading place has curtains to pull for a cozy cocoon-like feel.

Reading Nooks

The wide horizontal stripes on the walls give this country nook a stylish look. For a bit of privacy, simple curtain panels can be pulled across the door.

Reading Nooks

This colorful and comfortable nook has an appealing ethnic design and requires no furniture. An inviting space is perfect for curling up with a good book and a cup of tea.

Reading Nooks

This built-in nook has versatile space that is perfect for reading, relaxing or even accommodating an overnight guest. For reading at night, a ceiling light has been placed above the bed, while twin lamps on the desk/dressing table provide ambient lighting.

Reading Nooks

Could this tiny room with oversized lounges be more perfect for relaxing and reading on a sunny afternoon? A cozy indoor space, this nook has wide windows that bring the beauty of the outdoors inside. Don't these relaxing designs make you want to do some reading? Comments are welcome! Head over to Arcadian Lighting to get more lighting fixtures for your spot! Images: | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |
