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.
The bed isn’t the only place for relaxing in this bedroom. A chaise lounge in the bedroom promises many hours of comfort, staring lazily out the window at the unique ironwork that Malene designed herself. The lounge is topped with a cushion from a favorite local store in the area, Peace and Riot.
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.
Warm neutral tones blend nicely with slight charcoal pops in this quaint reading room from the 2013 Atlanta Decorators Show House, a showcase of more than 30 spaces transformed by designers from around the Southeast.
Metallic pendant lights hang above a gray armchair in the corner of this bedroom, creating a comfortable and stylish reading nook. The pendants cast spotted light on the patterned walls, giving the space a fun, whimsical appeal.
The designers used the client's love for color as the vehicle for this vibrant reading nook design. With an artistic touch, the designers were able to create a playful ambiance with the lighting and glitter painted walls.
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!
A corner of this master bedroom was turned into a sweet reading nook with a simple chair and a twinkly overhead light. A houseplant adds organic texture and the basket is an easy (and tidy) place to stash a blanket.
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.
Decatur is known for its distinct, historic neighborhoods, eclectic food, and vibrant downtown: it is not known for log cabins. My clients are the owners of this unlikely urban retreat and wanted to design a space that provided a TV-free zone to read, relax, eat, and play games as a family. This little reading nook is my favorite vignette. It is my client's favorite spot in the house. She has her morning coffee there daily. The chair was hers but the shelves were added to have storage and interest go up the wall and showcase their family pictures and items I sourced in flea markets all over Atlanta! The pouf and blanket were "must haves" from the very beginning.
Just around the corner from the dining area, two wicker armchairs give the owners another spot to read or relax. With flowers all around and the warm glow of lights in the distance, the space is truly enchanting.
