The crappiest part of winter is upon us, and if you live in a cold climate I bet you feel a little like me.  You just want to be cozy.  Nothing sounds better to me right now then a hot cup of coffee (or glass of wine) snuggled up by a fire with some good reading material.  Creating built in reading nooks, window seats or even daybeds is such a fabulous way to add charm to your home and create extra enjoyable space within very small square footage.

I would happily draw the curtains and veg out in this little nook below all day long!

A stunning place to take in an equally stunning view. Adding sconces makes reading easier and is an awesome decorative element.

As a child I would have committed various crimes to have a little bed nook like this.  Perhaps as an adult as well. Brilliant and beautiful.

You can easily build in bench seating on a sunny landing and top with cushions for a simple but wonderful place to sit.

A rustic, bohemian version that is more open and bright showcasing the ability to add something like this in virtually any corner of a room.

I adore the French tufted cushion in this reading nook (and the sconces, and the built in shelving…)

You can craft an extra cool space for kids by turning an unused closet into a incredible hideout for them!  You could add some floating book shelves on the side walls too for storage without having to spend on custom built ins!  Wallpaper inside and a statement pendant light would make for a fabulous jewel box effect! I would LOVE to create a space like this for Henry some day!

You can also utilize wasted space under stairs and create a fun little nook too!

Kinds wish I had tried to open the wall under my stairs in the basement to see if we could have done this!!!

Another dreamy little spot for a child to read or daydream. The upholstered wall acts as a wrap- around headboard.

This goes beyond a reading nook and kind of creates an all encompassing bunk room/ escape out of cramped attic space. BRILLIANT (but I would have continues the star paper on the flat portion of the ceiling myself).
