Reading Nook-1-Design Crush


In no particular order, three of my favorite things in life are reading, being cozy, and autumn. Luckily they go together perfectly, so this month I’ve teamed up once again with Target to create a reading nook that’s both chic and inviting. My recipe for a comfy little space like this one is one part knit, one part organic, and one part metallic.

In this case, the knit comes in the form of an afghan my 90-year-old grandmother made for me as a housewarming gift; it’s gorgeous and the perfect weight for chilly fall evenings. A colorful bouquet of flowers adds the organic touch, brightening up the neutrals that are popular this season and adding color to autumn days that tend to be slightly overcast. The metallic comes into play by way of this gold wire and wood accent table that manages to warm up the entire space, even with its slim silhouette. (And what reading nook could possibly be complete without a steaming cup of tea?)

Right now I’m in the process of finishing up The Vacationers, which has me and a few friends planning a trip to Greece and Turkey come spring 2016. I love how books have the ability to inspire real life adventures! What’s on your reading list at the moment?

    Funny, those are MY three favorite things, too! Looks lovely– my favorite is that table. We’re looking for something to compliment our living room that is without edges/corners (as we have a very active 14-month old). That just may do the trick, I honestly hadn’t considered looking at Target. Thanks for this!

    What a great quote! I’m just about finished with #girlboss, which I feel kind of “eh” about. I was thinking about reading Not that kind of Girl by Lena Dunham. I also love that target table, I’ve had my eye on it for a while!
