31 Days of Autumn Inspiration: Create a Cozy Nook

With the cold weather here (or approaching) you'll need a cozy spot to curl up in.  Why not turn an unused corner of your home into a nook that's perfect for reading or a nap?

With pillows and a throw, this space would be perfect for an afternoon nap.

Surrounded by books and with the natural light that the window provides, this space would be a great place to catch up on some reading.

Kids need nooks too! Why not create a tee pee for your child to play in on rainy afternoons?

Don't let the space under your stairs go to waste! What a wonderful place for a reading nook.

An unused closet would be a perfect place to create a nook like this.

Tons of pillows in a cozy nook call for a cup of tea!

This has got to be my favorite nook of all. If I had a space like this in our home, I don't think I'd ever leave the house.

Where is your favorite place to curl up? Do you have a corner in your home that you've turned into a special space?


  1. This reminds me of a little space under the stairs of a house that used to be my Uncle's. The area under the stairs was a miniature walk-in closet with a door. You literally had to get on your knees to be able to fit in this closet (so it was perfect for a child). He and my aunt turned that closet into a "play house" for their eldest daughter. My cousin (their eldest daughter)used to call it her "Little Mermaid" house.

  2. Thosee are great for lazy summer afternoons, too. I completely want one!
