A Place Apart   1 comment

April 23, 2018 – Images of reading nooks or bookshelf designs.
Is there such a thing as a bookworm who doesn’t appreciate photos of cozy reading nooks or gorgeous bookshelves? We think not, and have found success rounding up these types of bookish images. Choosing a particular season or unifying theme helps to keep the content focused and repeatable, like outdoor reading nooks or DIY bookshelves. Pinterest and Instagram are great channels to repurpose this image-based content.

1 Green and window

I have always wanted a reading nook, and when I was in high school, I actually did create a nook in a closet behind a knee wall in my bedroom. Of course, that house didn’t belong to me and the homes I’ve lived in subsequently have had them. Brad promises me that some day he’ll be finished with the restructuring of our house and the family room will end up with a window seat surrounded by bookshelves, with enough room to stretch and maybe a curtain across the front and, given that Brad is an electrician, adequate lighting.

For now, here are a couple of my dream nooks. I like the idea of books being close at hand, but I also like being able to look out a window. The one thing the first nook misses is a blanket. That’s an Alaskan thing, I think.

I’m not a fan of white – we see too much of it outside, but I like how this one is tucked back out of the room. It’s similar to one of Brad’s potential designs make us of a garreted-second story above our family room that really needs to be insulated better. His idea is that we could build out a nook under the garret. But mine would not be white.

3 Under stairs, blue, books

Before we moved to our current house 16 years ago, we lived for 18 years in 640 square feet, so I truly appreciate architecture that makes use of every inch, like this nook in a coworker’s basement that fits in under the stairs. My perfect noon has a window, but this is pretty cool and, not counting the books, cost him less than $1000 to build and furnish.

But there are so many nooks to choose from. Like this final one that I would quite happily curl up in with a good book. It’s got a window, lighting, a curtain to close out the world. I hope the books are right across the room. I can imagine being the heroine of a mystery, falling asleep behind the curtain and overhearing a critical conversation that leads her on a red herring goose chase that then leads her to the solution.

Whatever nook I might use, I can imagine sitting in any of these nooks not just with a book, but also with my laptop, my muse inspired by these awesome settings.
