A Nook for Reading

For some reason I keep refusing to take pictures of the black paint to show you guys.  Maybe it’s because I want to wait until the bedding and art comes and things are a little further along.  Oh well.  In other news, our bedroom is a blank canvas, and is really kind of sad right now. Particularly our lovely nook that is absolutely my favorite part of the house.  The current residents of the nook include a huge and terribly cat scratched sofa that was an old hand me down and our Goodwill pile.  Sad. Once I’m done with the guest bedroom, I am moving on to our master bedroom, and I am starting by making our nook the lovely room it deserves to be.


The inspiration picture makes me want to find a good book and never leave, and that is the grand plan for the nook.  Pretty lighting, a lovely settee (or chaise lounge in our case, because this is a time for luxury thank you), a basket filled with comfy throws for cuddling, and a little side table to hold a cup of coffee and a cup of hot cocoa.  Both will be essential.  And a rug.  Which is absolutely not necessary since there is carpet but rugs just make things prettier.

    I love that chaise lounge! I’m pretty sure that Pica will probably take over that room on sunny days.
