Beautiful Reading Nook

• 12 August 2010



































I'm not sure what I love more about this private space...the collection of porcelain, the shadowbox intermixed with decorative objects, the radio or the big, rectangular baskets on the bottom storing who knows what. Toys? Mags? Junk? :) Whatever it is, it's all pretty in my book.

p.s. don't you love reading nooks? shouldn't we all have one as a little respite?

p.p.s. did you notice that the bookcase is actually 3 benches stacked and attached to one another?

Stacking benches to make shelves - now that is a great idea! I love the soft colors and lighting in this photo.

What a lovely, peaceful spot! I was perusing the latest MSL magazine and found myself wondering what you would think of her 50 "must-haves" in a kitchen. Isn't it funny how a daily blogroll can influence us? I really do love your posts, thanks for all the time you put into them.

katik: You know, I'm going to have to pick up that issue again. I somehow must've missed that list. It sounds worth perusing though!

My folks built a reading nook into the house they built a few years back. It's brilliant and I already have spied a spot in our house to be remodelled into one as soon as the "children's computer" dies. *Cough *Cough. Where did I put that hammer?

Apologies! The article is actually called "Martha's 50 Top Kitchen Tips" on page 126, September 2010 issue.

Steph, I do love this! Unfortunately when I tried to Pin it, all I wound up with was some dumb ad, not the content, so I had to delete it ;(

Stephanie said...

Oh no Jeannee! You are always welcome to pin things from my blog. Not sure why that happened? Lame. Try again?
