This is our busy time of year, when things start to get a little crazy and we're pulled between friends, family, work, holidays...etc. In the middle of it all, we try to carve out some time alone. Lately we've been fantasizing about a reading nook. We found a great set of step-by-step instructions for creating one on Wiki How. Click here for tips. Some of our favorite ideas: • Find a spot in an alcove, corner, or even a closet. • Rearrange furniture to open up a small space for your nook. • Choose a comfy chair. • Stock a side table with a notepad and pens. • Make space for a glass of water or mug of tea. • Make sure you have adequate reading light. • Use a table lamp, floor lamp, or sconce. • Place your nook by a window for daytime reading. • Make it cozy with a blanket and throw pillow. • Screen your reading nook from the rest of the room. • Keep the nook apart from a central furniture arrangement. • Hang a curtain or use a folding screen to partition the space.
