Jessica’s Nook
image
In designing a reading nook for Jessica, I selected pieces that would help create a cozy spot to read, reflect or regroup. A wall color by Sherwin Williams (Restrained Gold, #6129) would serve as a calming, yet softly colorful, backdrop. I would also suggest painting her entire bedroom suite this color, in order to unite the two spaces. For the floor, I chose a neutral, small sisal rug (from Pottery Barn) to rest on top of her gorgeous hardwood floors, anchoring this space. As Jessica mentioned that they don’t *use* the door, I would suggest her handy husband mount an inexpensive piece of birch wood (cut to fit and also painted Restrained Gold) to the lower (solid metal) portion of the door. This will make it appear as though it is part of the wall, while leaving the upper half to appear as a window. A potted plant in front of the door would be a nice addition, as well. I would then replace the dark brown panels currently framing the door with lighter, floral panels (from Pottery Barn). The colors in these panels would also coordinate nicely with the lovely bed quilt in the adjoining bedroom. In order to cut costs, I would order only one 54” wide panel and cut it up the middle, thus making two panels (for the price of one)! I would then mount the panels 1” from the ceiling in order to emphasize the height of the walls. As for seating, I chose a super comfy white Jennylund chair (from IKEA) to be placed to the right of the door, angled out from the corner. And, rather than choosing the large matching ottoman, which might overpower this space, I chose a smaller, whimsical French footstool (from Home Decorators). A tray filled with stacked books would fit nicely on it, or Jessica can rest her feet while reading her favorite decorating magazine! On the wall behind the chair, I would place the framed “Keep Calm and Carry On” print (from Art.com) to serve as a daily inspirational reminder. I chose a floor lamp (from CSN stores) to sit to the right of the chair to provide ambient lighting. This dual purpose lamp would be great for this space because of its built-in table, which could provide the perfect place for Jessica to rest her favorite beverage. I also chose a small 3-light vintage chandelier (from Quality Discount Lighting) to serve as soft overhead lighting, as well. On the long wall perpendicular to the door, I would anchor a Billy bookcase (from IKEA), to hold Jessica’s favorite books, family pictures and accessories. Lastly, I would place three floating shelves (not pictured) on the angled wall to the left of the long wall. These shelves would serve as the perfect place for more family pictures and simple accessories!
Thank you so much for letting me play in Jessica’s future reading nook! I’m truly flattered to have been part of such a fun feature!
