8 beautiful reading nooks to help you reach peak chill

With recent events around the world weighing on my mind, I can't help but want to switch off a little, turn of the news and pick up a book or two instead. I always associate curling up for a cosy read with dark winter evenings, but the long summer nights mean plenty of extra hours of reading time. As we're in a new flat with more space, I've been in search of inspiration for the perfect little reading nook over on Pinterest. Here are my faves:

This one's pretty simple, because who needs interior fussiness when there's a view like this. Slightly embarrassingly it reminds me of the Cullen house in the Twilight films, but is beautiful nonetheless.

This corner sofa is uber traditional looking, perfect if your home has a period or cottage feel to it. 

Continuing the cosy theme, this colourful attic space is the stuff of boookworm dreams.

The pops of colour in this nook make for an inspirational work space, too.

Or perhaps you prefer a more feminine colour palette? This chair is calling out to me!

Let's take it monochome for a minute here, blankets and all.

This attic space is bright, airy, cosy and comfy all at once!

And last but not least, my personal favourite. The tree trunk shelves remind me of the hobbit houses in the shire!

Where do you like to curl up and read?

  1. Oh gosh, these are all such beautiful spaces, Kelly! While I'm a monochrome girl through and through, I know that I cherish my reading spaces way too much for them to stay monotonous. The first and third look like amazing places to just drown in a book. x
