Who doesn’t love a good book? Curling up in your favorite reading spot makes reading even more enjoyable.

Be inspired to turn that unused corner of your home into your very own reading spot. Here are some ideas for reading spaces, inspired by popular vacation reading spots. Reading your book in one of these spaces will transport you into instant vacation mode –no need to leave your home!

A Country Reading Nook

Designing your own country reading corner is ideal if you have a window seat, or a large picture window in your home. Fill the space with plenty of throw pillows, soft pastels, elegant vintage prints, and light and airy window treatments for a simple and comfortable reading nook.

A Beach Getaway

The beach is a popular place to read books. Perhaps it’s because of the relaxing atmosphere, or the comfort of the sand between your toes. While you may not want to bring the entire beach into your home, you can easily set up a beach corner for reading. With some beach-inspired art, shades of blue and white, and beach themed motifs, you’ll soon have your own seaside escape.

Woodland Inspiration

After a long day hiking through the woods all you want to do is curl up by the fire in an old rocking chair with a handmade quilt draped across your lap, book in hand. What better way to spend your evening? Create your own rustic getaway with cabin-inspired features. Situated next to a fireplace and with a warm blanket –your woodlands reading corner will be ready and waiting.
