A side table is a must for creating your reading nook. Not only does it add style to your reading nook with a small vignette but a place to rest your favourite book.
Decorate your side table with a vase of freshly picked flowers from the garden and a scented candle.

Natural light is ideal for your reading nook, alternatively choose a tall table lamp or a floor lamp for overhead lighting. For more directional lighting for reading use a lamp that you can adjust into place.

Add a comfortable cushion with a feather insert and a throw rug to your reading nook for those cooler days. This is where you can add texture, colour and pattern with a beautiful Autumn throw.
Placing a rug under your chair will define your reading nook in your living space. Choose natural tones or add a warm and textured rug for warmth.
Relax and enjoy your new reading nook with your favourite book. What are you Reading?
