Cozy Corners

In my own little corner, in my own little chair...I think Cinderella was on to something when she sang that song. Yes, this is another movie favorite. It was her private little sanctuary to be what ever she wanted to be or not quite so dramatic...just be.

We get so busy with day to day activities that sometimes we just forget to take time for ourselves. What better place to do that than your very own corner which I like to call a “cozy, reading nook”. Almost any room is appropriate for these nooks. Your home is your haven and should be a place to relax, unwind and regroup.
You may just need a place to read the newspaper, a book or just reflect on the day with a cup of coffee or glass of wine. All you need is a comfortable chair or two (if you feel like sharing your nook) a table for a beverage and maybe your favorite photos along with a good reading lamp. Your nook needs to be happy and relaxing so add a few items that bring you joy.

Whether in your bedroom or in the corner of the family room, this grouping can be small enough to fit in most rooms. Add a footstool or ottoman to put your feet up or hold a tray with your favorite beverage. Just make it a comfortable a place you can really relax and unwind.
