At some point in time, everyone likes to curl up with a comfy blanket, a book or magazine and just sort of, decompress. Sometimes your family is on the couch watching television, and sometimes you just want to take yourself away from that all, and be by yourself for a few minutes, even if it's only five feet away.
Introduce the Reading Nook.

Heavenly, right? Essentially all this requires is a totally under utilized corner, a comfy chair, a small table and a lamp. Toss your favorite blanket over the arm of the chair & you have your own personal hideaway. You can put this in your bedroom, next to your nightstand, for a super easy fix. You can station one in a quiet corner of a living room or den. You can even take a large awkward hallway and add these few simple things to add visual interest and a nice little spot to relax. Here are a few more images to get you motivated.
