The best way to create a cozy corner is to start with the right chair. Club chairs are always comfortable and a safe way to go – especially when paired with an ottoman. Add a small floor lamp to provide ample lighting for reading.

A fireplace is an obvious spot for creating a place to curl up when the days get shorter and chillier. A basket of firewood is at the ready for stoking warm flames.

  1. Each one of these are lovely. So nice to see so many possibilities. My cozy reading chair is in my office. My quiet spot if husband is watching tv 😉

  2. I love those window seats. They make me sleepy looking at them. On another note, I was wondering if you saw the email I sent to you about an amber bottle?

  3. Love the idea of a reading nook. Had one in our previous home and need to figure out how to make one in our new home.

  4. Now you have me dreaming of a cozy window seat, which i would love to have. Yes i have a nice little area with a chair, lamp and footstool. Thanks for the warm and snuggly ideas.

  5. These cozy nooks have me envious. I would love to have a cozy spot to do my crocheting/reading. I’ll have to figure out how to reconfigure my living room but that would entail new furniture (sigh). I wonder if I could convince my hubby hmmm food for thought now.

  6. Your post caused me to put the window seat cushion for our guest/music room on my “to do” list. I’m not sure if I should thank you for that or not… but I do thank you for the beautiful, inspiring rooms.

  7. Thanks for all the inspiration! I’ve been wanting to do something lol, for several years, but thinking now I might just be able to get my cozy corner right, finally.

  8. My cozy corner is in my bedroom. I have a comfy chair, console table and lamp plus a large window that opens to the garden. I really enjoy the space in the late afternoon when the sunlight is filtered through the trees and the shadow plays on the wall.
