The kid owner of this bedroom gets two cozy reading nooks: one, a built-in window seat (with a drawer for useful storage!) and the other, a plush chair on the floor. A built-in bookshelf keeps favorite tales and toys within easy reach.
Modern book rails put colorful kids' books on display and within easy reach of a cozy reading nook. Patterned pillows and a sleek gray bench cushion decorate the window seat and give the all-white space a jolt of color.
Wanting a place where their kids could safely roam, the homeowners asked Eisner Design to convert their basement into an indoor playground. The space includes a climbing wall, swing chairs, a bookcase with a built-in reading nook and a loft for movie nights and sleepovers.
Once a historic schoolhouse, the homeowners wanted the building turned into a cozy space for themselves and their five children, so designers used the former auditorium to create an open concept space that includes a large, galley kitchen with breakfast bar, a living area, breakfast nook and reading hammocks.
This fun and functional playroom features a custom, life-sized Scrabble board as the accent wall. An array of colors and patterns blend together to create the perfect space for kids of all ages. Next to a floor lamp and a big stack of books, a zebra-print chair offers a comfy reading nook.
Built-in bookshelves ensure there's a place for every knickknack and piece of art in this stylish family room. There's even a built-in nook for the kids to read and play games. We're also loving the midcentury modern design.
A window seat doubles as a cozy spot to read and a place to store toys thanks to removable storage bins below. White plantation shutters and a menswear-patterned, pinstripe Roman shade keep the kid-friendly nook sophisticated and stylish.
A bubble chair with red leather upholstery is suspended from the ceiling of this Upper West Side kid's room, forming a fun, funky nook sure to inspire early readers. A striped wall treatment and multicolored rug offer a bright counterpoint to the brick and steel city views.
A wasted space in the form of a dated double height covered front door area became a newly found space with the design of this cozy space. By adding a floor, designer Kristina Crestin was able to carve out this little nook. A deep, long window seat with pillows and reading lights is perfect for lounging. Bookcases were built in to the awkward sloped ceiling, creating one of the kids most favorite places.
This nook in the family room is a quiet place for the parents to work or read to their children before bed time. The space is sophisticated with transitional furniture and clean lines, but is approachable enough for three little ones to run around. This bookcase is a colorful touch in an otherwise neutral space, and showcases many of the keepsakes the family has picked up in their travels.
Homeowners wanted a non-traditional design in this modern nursery that could grow with their son as he grows, so designers created this edgy space. The black and white color palette makes the space modern and unique, while the black sound waves running up the wall keep the space from feeling too babyish; however, the artwork from Shel Silverstein's classic children's book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" helps to bring nursery innocence to the space. To add the finishing touches, air ducts and pendant lights were exposed to give the space an edgier look and a reading nook was created as a comfortable place to foster learning throughout this little boy's life.
This home in Decatur, Georgia outside Atlanta has five boys all under the age of 5, which means lots of mess. Designer Gina Sims solved that "problem" by creating an adult nook in the kitchen where the boys' art supplies are hidden away in the buffet. Sims advising going up when it comes to design and other elements you want to keep out of kids' reach. "The wine storage went up the wall out of reach, and we added impactful art, lighting and window treatments to draw the eye up," says Sims. Sims was also strategic in her choice of materials for the seating. "The plastic molded chairs are easily wiped down (or hosed off!) and the machine made (read: inexpensive) rug has lots of color and pattern which hide stains," notes Sims.
