I set aside a quiet little corner in the only room in our home that’s entirely my own – my office space. Tucked away from the busiest areas of our home, with all sorts of sunlight pouring in, this little corner was the perfect spot to create a cozy little reading nook.

two. Add somewhere comfortable to sit.

Because what would a reading nook be without a comfy spot to sink into. I absolutely adore this Hancock Park Arm Chair from The Brick – the timeless design fits my farmhouse style perfectly and it’s SO cozy to curl up in!
