Creating a cozy reading nook is a great way to utilize extra space and create charm in your home at the same time. Whether large or small, a reading nook is a place to escape the stress of every day life and do a little extra dreaming. Just before selling our previous home, we converted an underused coat closet into a beautiful and useable book nook. It became one of our family’s favorite features of the home, but we didn’t get to use it for long. Since we enjoyed it so much I am looking for ways to incorporate a book nook or reading area into our current home. Here are 10 cozy reading nook ideas I am using for inspiration.
Hello dear friends! A year and a half ago my husband and I completed our cottage bedroom makeover and I love it! There are still a few areas of the room that need some updating, so today I am revisiting an older post with some new photos of dreamy bedroom inspiration.*This post contains affiliate links.
The bedroom should be a tranquil place, so I try to consider this aspect when putting ideas and design concepts together. I love rooms that incorporate calm colors and soft lighting and make the bed the focal point of the room. Of course your bedroom is your sanctuary that you need to fill with the things you love!
Hi friends! The weather is a bit gloomy and cold here, so I am spending the day inside just looking online for traditional dining room inspiration. We have a traditional style dining room which is a separate room off from the kitchen, characteristic of 1920’s homes. While I love having a traditional dining room, a lot of the historic charm has been lost over the years, so I am searching for ways to add some classic character and updated style at the same time. For today’s post I am sharing some photos of beautiful traditional dining rooms and design elements that I find inspiring. I am also identifying some essentials for designing a beautiful, traditional dining room space. Enjoy! *This post contains affiliate links.
This gorgeous dining room has all the traditional design elements: beautiful furnishings, a classic tablescape with coordinating dishes and crystal stemware, candles, fresh flower bouquets, a mirror as artwork on the wall, and a gorgeous area rug. And just look at that chandelier! For each of the pictures in this post I have chosen beautiful chandeliers and light fixtures for inspiration, as well as examples of the other design elements pointed out here.
In this swoonworthy photo we get a peek into a dreamy dining room filled with beautiful treasures. I love the simple potted fern as a centerpiece, which doesn’t distract from the yummy cabinet filled with ironstone dishes on the far wall. The interesting light above the dining room table is stunning.
Hello and welcome back for another post in my Home Improvement and DIY series. My husband and I recently restored the original hex tile floor in our 1921 powder room for the One Room Challenge. I am loving the floor! Now I am trying to decide what type of flooring to use in the mudroom just outside of the powder room. I have been looking on Pinterest for inspiration so I thought I’d share a quick round up post of the top flooring choices for your home in case you haver been looking for ideas too. *This post contains affiliate links.Read more
