'Me Time' in a Reading Chair

One of our lovely customers just bought a bean bag chair (in 'graphite' grey), and told us she intends to create a little reading nook in a sunny corner of her home. What a great idea! Your own 'me time' possy, that you can retreat to with a hot cuppa and a favourite magazine or good book. We went scouting on Pinterest for some gorgeous reading nooks to inspire...

A shelf hanging above your reading chair keeps favourite books in easy reach.
A clamp light is a great idea too - easy to move around as you need.

Reading chair rule one: If you can, choose a spot that catches the sun - especially at the time of day you most like to sit and chill, be that with the paper in the morning or a good book in the afternoon.

Reading Chairs make a great addition to a Kid's room or nursery - a lovely spot to sit for storytime. This charming little corner has lots to love - the fun chevron rug, well-placed light above the chair, and that bright blue ottoman!

A soft blanket and cushion are two must-haves for your reading corner - you've gotta be cozy and warm, after all!
The gallery wall behind the chair is gorgeous too - plenty going on but pared back with the choice of colours.

This rocking chair is so sweet! And that deep grey colour will never date. A bean bag chair is also a great idea for a child's room - and we have bean bag chairs in both light and deep grey, with a little top handle to make them easy to move about.

We have chair envy! How amazing is this china-blue designer chair? Perfect for a reading nook... or a knitting nook, it would seem! Two great ideas from this space - a solo piece of statement art really anchors the space, as does a small rug.

White and bright makes a great clean canvas, with the bean bag, ottoman and paper mobile adding fun pops of colour. That kid's-size Eames replica chair is so sweet, but a bean bag chair would also be a comfy alternative for story-time.

A vintage wooden crate makes for a unique and affordable book box. Grey comes to the party again to keep the colour palette calm and classic, and the framed photograph really defines this little space. Add a well-placed pendant light and position next to a window with a view, and you've got yourself the perfect reading corner!

A knee-high stack of books or magazines make a great sidetable for your cuppa!
