A Magical Reading Nook

Reading has been quite a focus in our household with the kids transferring to a new school.  It inspired me to do a magical reading nook that with proper planning can be executed in 30 minutes tops, especially with the help of Ceej, who is my co-stylist here at the spinkie head office.

The Dreamy Canopy in Pale Rose was a key piece for this reading nook, and to give the space a grander magical feel, we selected as assortment of delightful decals from Blond Noir’s Denim Isla Collection and Grey Animal Print dots, as well as some butterfly decals from Isla Dream Prints. We certainly can’t live without decals!

You also need an area rug.  The ivory-colored faux fur area rug one we used here is something I just cut myself.  You will need something that is at least 2 meters wide to give enough space for kids who love to lounge around.

A reading nook won’t be complete with cushions, so we used a combination of H&M Home cushions and a few of our Star Pillows in Charmeuse Silk.  We added some soft toys as well because reading is just more fun with friends.

Add a nice bed and the space easily changes its purpose.  Easy peasy!  Watch the video below and see how we created our Magical Reading Nook, which transformed into a Magical Sleep Space!
