An Inventive Alcove

This idea cleverly makes the most out of an odd recess in the wall, and uses homely elements such as decorative cushions, a throw and a picture frame to make the space feel more welcoming. We think the wooden seat’s deep earthy tones complement the rich, red face brick beautifully!

If you’re a bona fide bookworm, then we’re sure you’ll agree that nothing could be better than curling up next to the fire with a thrilling page-turner! Don’t you love how this design leaves the reading nook wall exposed to create a face brick feature wall that adds a touch of charm to this modern living space?

Do you have a window worth staring out of? Why not take advantage of it by placing a reading nook infront of it? Just image being able to look out at a beautiful view and daydream as you unwind after a long, hard day of work.

An Outdoor Escape

We’re not sure about you, but we definitely wouldn’t mind putting our feet up and soaking up some sun in an outdoor reading nook – especially one as stunning as this! We love how the face brick wall is intersected by lush green vines, creeping up along a wrought iron frame. This unique mix of organic and man-made elements works together to create a romantic and refreshingly whimsical atmosphere.
