My style is very eclectic - each room in our condo has a different feel, including a beachy bathroom and a bright, cheerful bedroom. But I also love lots of wood; warm, earthy colors; and personal touches, including tons of framed family photos. I don't worry about our home being magazine-worthy - I just want it to reflect us and the things we love. My dream reading nook would be cozy and inviting, the perfect place to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book (or several!), and here are some things I would include:
THE BIG THINGS
First, I'd start with the large pieces of furniture: lots of rich dark wood bookshelves (I love the rustic look of these), a comfy chair, and a cool lamp that ties in my love of the outdoors.
THE LITTLE DETAILS
Next, I'd start filling it in with fun pieces: a cozy blanket, beautifully scented candles, fun wall prints, and some cool bookends to style my shelves. As you can see, I like pretty much everything! Different colors, textures, styles - I love mixing them all together and getting a unique look!
So, if you were designing your dream reading nook, what would you include? Or if you already have the perfect space, what does it look like? What's your personal style - traditional, contemporary, something different altogether? What are your favorite home decorating stores?
