Yesterday I was rushing after work to a fabulous book store here in Munich which happens to be just in my neighborhood. It is one of the coolest and nicest book stores in town – it is called Literatur Moths if you ever happen to be here in town – and I went there to buy a birthday present for one of my Parisian friends. Anyways, while I was browsing the store I found at least three books that I wanted for myself – but I hesitated: I have a huge pile of books yet to be read on my sideboard!
Why am I boring you with my book shopping story? Because it made me think of reading nooks in homes. When you have a spacious home, it is wonderful to have a dedicated reading nook where you could unwind with your favorite books after a long day or on rainy weekends. Maybe a little bit like this beautiful reading nook that caught my eye today – these are the reasons:
- Large Houseplant: As an Urban Jungle Blogger I love plants. They look great and they make your home a healthy place – so placing one next to your reading nook is an excellent idea!
- Bertoia Diamond Chair: This design classic is always a highlight. However, I wonder how comfortable the chair is. Probably not the best solution for a reading nook, but I might be wrong. My recommendation for a reading chair is THIS one.
- Leather Pouf: This Moroccan leather pouf adds so much character to this little nook with its warm hue and soft texture. Perfect to rest your feet while reading!
