For me, the ultimate way to relax during the crazy holiday season is sitting down with a glass of wine by my fireplace reading a book or catching up on monthly magazines.
But in order to fully disconnect and escape into my own world (which is something I need after 8 pm, otherwise I keep working!), I need the space to be comfortable and cozy.
We created this tiny reading nook in the corner of my living room that we are thoroughly enjoying! I thought I’d share with you how I put my reading nook together, and my seven must-haves for designing a one of your own!
7 must-haves for creating a reading nook.
- A cozy corner or nook area.
- Comfortable Chair
- A bench or ottoman to rest your feet on
- Reading lamp
- A warm blanket
- Good book and magazines
Once you have everything together for your nook, all you need a glass of wine, cocktail or some of your favorite snacks to make it yours!
