Reading nooks are all the rage, for both kids and adults. After all, we as adults love cozy places, and kids are no exception.  Why not give the little kiddos in your life somewhere to kick back with a good book? Today, I’m sharing my favorite reading nooks for kids.

  1. I love the one pictured above. The patterns and colors work together perfectly, and those wall-mounted shelves are actually picture ledges. They’re inexpensive to purchase or DIY, and they’re such a nice, decluttered look. The wall decals and that little garland are too cute for words!

2. I just really love this teepee with its cozy pillows, rug and cute little star lights. You could always add picture ledge shelves to the wall behind it if you wanted.

3. Here’s a reading nook for the smallest of readers. This toddler reading nook features low shelves for little hands to choose their own books, and a comfy bean bag.

4. Have a dormer in your kiddo’s room? Why not stretch a curtain across it and make a “reading room?” I love these curtains and the idea of a “private” reading area. My kids would absolutely love this.

5.  Repurpose a Billy bookcase into a handy window seat in your reading nook. Add a long cushion and lots of pillows, and you’ll surely want to curl up with a good book and stay there. I love the colors, the extra storage and the cuteness of this reading nook.

I hope you have truly enjoyed our Pinterest roundup today! Come back Friday for summer home decor tips.

How to make the most out of your small bedroom

How to make the most

Even the smallest space can be one that is relaxing and beautiful if you keep it clean and organized enough. Even if you have a small bedroom, you can make it appear bigger. However, the true focus of your efforts should be on making the most of the space that you have now, including organizing your possessions in such a way that they are convenient to access and use. You don’t need a lot of space to make a bedroom that is inviting, neat, and pretty.

First, make your space more comfortable while also making it appear larger by using quality lighting. Don’t simply flood your room with bright lights in an attempt to make it seem larger. Instead, use multiple smaller lights to make your room lighter or darker depending on your circumstances and mood. Find a variety of lights at your local retailer and consider a number of options. For example, if you need LED lighting Tampa visit a trusted company like Light Style of Tampa Bay. There, you will see the options, such as floor lamps, ceiling lamps, and wall lights, which can provide depth and interest to your small bedroom.

Use creative ideas to make the most out of your space for storage. Organize your closet both vertically and horizontally. Use the space under your bed to store boxes and choose stools and chairs that allow you to store things inside of them. You don’t need a ton of space to fit all of your stuff if you organize them well. At the same time, you should get rid of things that are not needed in your life so that you don’t have a lot of clutter taking up space in your bedroom.

Finally, choose light colors and simple patterns to avoid making your bedroom look busy or cluttered. Neutral or light colors make your space seem larger and more relaxing at the same time. Avoid jarring patterns or patterns that use a number of contrasting colors. Keep it simple, neat, and always organized.

From house to Home: Tips and Tricks for a cozier home

From house to Home: Tips and Tricks for a cozier home

What is the difference between a “house” and a “home?” By definition, the two words mean almost the same thing, but connotatively, a Home is where you feel comfort and a sense of belonging.

With just a few tips and a little money, you can make your house feel more like Home.

1. New mattress, pillows and sheets

A comfy bed goes a long way in making your house feel like home. Replace your mattress every eight to ten years to ensure that your back is well supported. Comfy pillows and sheets will help you to sleep better at night.

2. Layer, layer, layer!

Nothing adds cozy and comfort to a room like an area rug and curtains. Our dining room was mighty bare and boring until we added this rug and these curtains.

3. A pleasant smell really makes your home feel cozy

We love to use candles from Anthropologie to make our house more inviting. These Eden Spring candles are lightly scented and amazing.

4. Decorate with things that matter to you.

Artwork adds a lot in a home. You can find all sorts of inexpensive and interesting art online on Pinterest, Etsy, and my personal favorite, Graphics Fairy. You can also create gallery walls with some photographs of your favorite memories. Decorate with things that are important to you.

5. A comfy place to sit at the end of the day

There’s nothing like A nice, comfortable chair to make you feel at home. This chair in our nursery is a wonderful example.

What makes a home feel cozy to you?
