Can't Get Enough: Cozy Nooks and Crannies















Whether tucking in a child
or curling up with a book,
nothing is more appealing
than a toasty little nook!

  1. I love these little reading nooks! Perfect!! We have a corner of the house where we have put a leather ottoman, most of the time it acts a dog bed, with his faux-fur throw on it. But when we have a flat inspection or people over we disguise it as a reading nook by adding loads of cushions and some books onto the ottoman! It is a great disguise! :) Hazel

  2. These are all so creative and inspiring. I'm a big fan of the built in window seat. I love the way all these take an awkward space and make it functional, attractive and add storage.

  6. Oh, I love these!!!! My parents summer house had a long upstairs hallway lined with window seats flanked by built in bookcases.....brings back wonderful memories! The first image is divine--a girl's dream!

  9. I love nooks! We have a bay window in our bedroom that I put curtains over but I haven't made it a cozy nook yet :)

  10. These nooks are all very inviting! Although i don't have a window seat in my home, i've always admired them.

  11. Good book, cuppa (or perhaps a wine depending on the time of day), a magazine when the book gets heavy going, a cat that doesn't bite...the possibilities of nooks are endless and wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I always wanted a cozy nook of my own as a child in which to create my own little beautiful corner of the world.

    ReplyDelete
  13. All of these are amazing! What kid would be thrilled to go sleep in their own nook? How fun! Great post. =)

  16. You have inspired me Zhush...I have a funny room called a 'sewing room' aka no windows, in the basement that I need to use as an overflow guest room when the kids come to stay. It has been a bit of a challenge to decorate, but if I think of it as a 'nook' rather than a room...well, it just might work.
    Perhaps a sleeper cabin on the Orient Express???
    Quite excited now...

  46. Since I just relocated, I am still working on furnishing all the 'functional' (okay, necessary) spaces...but I cannot wait to get to the details of spaces just for pleasure (hello reading nook!).

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm a hound dog for nooks! We stay in this glorious condo in Seaside, Florida with a nook that can only be reached with a 12-foot ladder. When you climb to the top, there is a queen bed inside. It's marvelous!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh how I love a snuggly nook.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I agree. Cozing up with a hot tea and a great book in a little nook is the best!!

  53. I thought I had a
    favorite....but then
    I kept scrolling and
    found another....and
    another....and
    ANOTHER!!! I've always
    just wanted a window-
    seat, which would be
    high on the cozy factor,
    in my book! Lovely

  72. These are wonderful! Reminds me of my childhood (and not so childhood dream) of wanting a window seat. I can just imagine getting lost in a book while soaking in the sunshine.

    Have a great week!

  74. Yes, little hide-aways like these are great. Our former mountain retreat in Sweden was a 150 year old house with the original inbuilt beds in the main room. Each had their individual hand carved wooden shutters (like cabinet doors almost) making them the ultimate nook. We'd always fight over who'd get to sleep in them! :)

    Loving your parade of more modern nooks. Am dreaming of one today I tell you! It's so cold here in Sydney - icy rain and thunder grey clouds..
