Everybody loves a nook. I mean, it’s not just me, right? We all liked to be tucked in to a cozy space to read or eat or work or sleep. Especially at this time of year when the weather turns colder and we are spending more time indoors. It’s nice to crawl into a place that’s comfy and warm.

Some lucky homeowners have places that cry out for these special spaces. Other times we find a way to add them to the design. We strive to create nooks that can multitask. They can provide much needed storage as well as a snug reading bench, study area or casual dining space.



Not all nooks need to be enclosed. Try taking advantage of a free corner – you can create your own nookish feel by arranging furniture pieces and décor that really designate the area.


My personal dream is to have an under the stairs nook….a la Harry Potter’s cupboard (without the spiders…:)


So grab a mug of tea, a juicy novel, and your favorite throw, cozy up and get nooked!
