just another lazy day…

Happy Friday everyone! Today is a gloomy day in NYC, the kind that makes you want to stay inside and read your favorite book on your fluffiest chair! I thought I would end the week with Chair Nook or Reading Nook inspirations. A favorite past time of mine is to read. It’s hard balancing all of those books and television series I’m watching! I’m so HGTV obsessed!! But there’s nothing like snuggling up under a warm and fuzzy blanket in a comfortable chair on a Friday night to read. Oh and of course a hot cup of coffee, YUMMY!

To invoke that feeling even more, I decided to give you some wonderful photos of my favorite comfy reading corners you can add to your home.

Simply shabby chic…Love the mirror!

Lover’s nest…

So girly… tea anyone?

Where’s grandpa?….

A splash of gray, ok maybe a lot of gray…

I particularly love the nook below – it comes from a cottage by the sea kind of feel. The Turquoise frames really pop against the white background.

Here’s an Ikea chair and ottoman that’s been custom covered.

Nothing like a nice, wide and comfortable chair to settle into.

Tufted chairs never go out of style. The French Bergere chair
to the right is covered with a wonderfully modern print.

The purple in this chair pops right out at you!…LOVE IT!!!!

Green…Such a soothing and fresh color.

If you like Scandinavian furniture, here’s a nice example of a little nook with stacks and stacks of magazines.

Love the patterned pillow against this fresh green chair.

Contrasting piping makes for great drama and aesthetics.

You can never really go wrong with black and white.

A Jay Jeffer’s wing chair….

Another Jay Jeffer covered Chair….I adore the colors in the fabric.

This gorgeous chair is covered in custom fabric by Angele Parlange. She took actual samples of writing from old stationary from her ancestors
and created this fabric with it. Simply gorgeous….I’ve always had a thing for words and writing in design.

Oh So Comfortable!!

“Oh So Fabulous!!”
