Rainy Day Reading Nook

This rainy tuesday afternoon calls for the perfect reading nook. A place with a view to the outdoors, pillows and throws to enjoy spring showers. Here are some beautiful reading nooks to take inspiration from.

Monochrome - keep it calm and soothing in a single toned nook with luxurious fabrics and window treatments.

Cozy Day Bed- create a warm and inviting nook by using a day bed for the perfect reading corner. Dress it up with fluffy duvets that will match your colour scheme.

It's just too cold outside. Time to curl up into a ball and hibernate forever.:
