Cozy nooks for curling up

Cozy nooks for curling up

Ask any bookworm about their ideal afternoon, and it will almost certainly involve a page-turner, hot beverage, and a comfy place to read the day away. With that in mind, we’ve lined up some of the most unique, whimsical, and — most importantly — cozy reading nooks the internet has to offer. Without further adieu…

Hang Out

A wicker chair suspended from the ceiling and covered in comfy blankets allows for some gentle rocking while reading. If that novel gives way to an afternoon nap, even better.

What better place to engage the imagination than a bright, colorful space filled with fanciful children’s creations? As a bonus, the built-ins ensure the nook and all its tchotchkes are corralled in a set area.

Chic & Sleek

Self-care is imperative, and creating a space that feels intentional only adds value to me-time. Bright light, soft whites, and pops of shimmer make this nook feel luxurious and indulgent in the best way.

Chic & Sleek: Kids’ Edition

Kids love to emulate their parents, and if that means building good reading habits in a glam environment early, why not encourage it? Here’s an elegant little getaway for mini-mes to luxuriate in while they discover the wonders of literature.

Cozy Color

While reading nooks should always be comfortable, they should never be boring. This brightly colored feature wall differentiates the space and lends some energy and excitement to book binges, day or night.

The High Life

Speaking of never boring, this suspended hammock serves to maximize otherwise dead space, create the ultimate untouchable reading nook, and reach every last book. Caveat emptor: falling asleep in this retreat may result in the dreaded waffle face.

What’s even better than a dedicated reading area in your home? A dedicated reading area NOT in your home! This little shed is truly an escape that makes it easy to ignore dusty shelves, pesky work emails, or whatever else gets in the way of finishing that novel. Suggested addition: wine fridge.

Picture (window) Perfect

The view might be a little distracting, but what a lovely distraction it is. This simple, yet high-end nook has a tranquil vibe that encourages long reads, daydreams, or both.

Stairway to Stories

Another excellent application for underused space, this little lair under the stairs is tailor-made for tiny readers, complete with a miniature library, reading lamp, and even a secret door.

Water & Whimsy

Like something found in a modern-day secret garden, this rope-swing-meets-couch can be strung up over water or land, depending on what’s available.
