Even in a small home, creating special areas for things like reading and art is a good idea. It's easy to create a room within a room with accessories like this book wallpaper.
Just one roll of this clever wallpaper in a corner of a room creates a special reading zone. Throw down a few cushions or place a small chair with a shelf full of books and you're all set. You can buy the wallpaper here.
