A Simple Reading Nook


I find this simple nook beautiful. In fact, I'd love one right now, oh yes please, I need a place where I can read quietly with a black deck chair where I can recline comfortably and read for a couple of hours and a little hairy skin on that deck won't hurt as far as glam factor is concerned. I love the globe on the table beside the window, nice touch really, I don't know about you but I love globes and maps... and on the walls are pages from a book, drawings really. I'm not much on reading while sitting straight on a chair, but that old Danish chair looks so cool and there are times when I like or need to underline some parts of what I'm reading and that table and chair is what I need. And I just love the abundant natural light coming from that window, beats any light fixture to illuminate what you're reading on a bright sunny morning.

I have one of those chairs and they are wonderfully comfortable. I believe they are called steamer chairs as they were originally designed for lounging on board ships and could be easily folded for storage. Lovely picture! x Sharon

The wall treatment is really cool, and love the sloped ceiling. I'm a supper for a room with a detail like that :-) And the globe is cool - I'm really into globes & maps too :-)
