The library on the second floor of this detached garage has several reading nooks tucked between aisles of books. These nooks have plush leather couches, ottomans and chairs that are perfect for curling up with a good book, while modern pendant lights illuminate the spaces from above.
A curated collection of books arranged in a matching color scheme make this small reading nook cohesive. "Books are interesting" as a design feature, stresses Boyd. "It's kind of like a window into the house" and the taste and interests of the owner.
Large windows and an overhead floor lamp make this corner of the room the perfect reading nook. A large orange armchair with a matching ottoman offers a comfy place to sit, relax and enjoy a good book.
This reading nook is the perfect place for any child to let their imagination wander – book storage below keeps the books easily accessible. Furry pillows on the bed and elephant book-ends tie this room together beautifully!
Plum accents in this cozy reading nook add drama to the neutral palette while the plush oversized chair and overhead lighting beckon readers to curl up with a good book. Meanwhile, contrasting shabby chic and modern styles in the space create a harmonious, relaxing vibe.
In a tight space you need to exhaust all storage possibilities. If you’re looking to store kid stuff, get down on their level, then scout the space for opportunities. For example, low shelves under a dining table or console can provide an ideal spot for board games, books or that dump truck you keep stumbling over.
Just beneath the stairs, a renovated closet becomes the perfect place to read and relax. Plush pillows keep the space cozy and comfortable, while shelves below help the books stay organized and out of harm's way.
