Contemporary Home Office With Reading Nook
A chrome-and-glass desk is accented by eye-catching fuschia flower decor while a flokati rug adds texture to the space. The closet doubles as a reading nook with a tufted leather love seat and metallic wallpaper making the home office have a more playful tone.
Sleek book ledges display favorite reads, creating a simple reading nook. A dark wood crib is dressed with classic pinstriped sheets and a graphic black-and-white pillows, while the updated damask wallpaper contrasts against the simple striped area rug.
A plush beanbag chair and bookshelf that's easy for little hands to reach make this reading corner an instant hit. The colorful furnishings as well as the toys and books themselves brighten up the space with a rainbow array.
Contemporary Master Bedroom Features Cherry Wood Floors & Reading Nook
A row of tall, thin windows allow natural light to stream into this master bedroom through open white curtains. A polished, brown stone fireplace surround provides a small separation between the reading nook and the main bedroom area. Neutral bed linens keep with the calm feel while an olive green neck roll adds a touch of color.
Contemporary Kid's Bedroom With Reading Nook and Industrial-Style Bunk Beds
The vaulted ceiling kids' bedroom in the HGTV Green Home 2010 has a bunk bed made from industrial metal pipe railing and stairs. A cozy reading nook with a comfy orange chair is illuminated by paper-mache lamps.
When the home office isn't in use, this room serves as a cozy guest bedroom. A sculptural, burnt orange accent wall adds visual interest to the windowless room. Books, pillows and paintings make it feel homey and inviting.
The contemporary bedroom also houses a home office and media area, featuring a sleek white desk and dresser for storage. A floor-length mirror floats off the patterned gray accent wall, while a gray shag area rug adds coziness to the dark hardwood floors.
