We’re pretty sure there’s nothing better than sitting down to read a good book. But, what about reading that book while curled up in a comfy little nook with a cup of coffee and enough throw pillows to disappear into? Umm, yeah. We definitely wouldn’t be mad at that situation. If you have a closet you don’t need or a weird corner you don’t know how to decorate, turn that space into a personal sanctuary where you can snuggle up under a cozy blanket and take some time for yourself. So go ahead, grab your beverage of choice and get ready to virtually curl up in these 19 oh-so-inviting reading nooks.

1. Retro Colors: Make a little window seat in your guest room or kid’s room and then go crazy with colors and fabrics. (via House of Turquoise)

2. Awkward Corners: If you have a weird corner in your house that you don’t know what to do with, why not turn it into a tiny refuge with a comfy chair and a tiny table to set your books on? Whatever you do, don’t forget to include the succulents. (via Apartment Therapy)

3. Just Hanging: Adding extra seating near your nook makes it the perfect place for the kids to hang. It might become just as popular as (if not more than) the living room (via Refinery 29)

4. Pretty in Pink: An oversized pink chair is a feminine focal point in this monochromatic space. (via Houzz)

5. Natural Light: We’re not sure we’d get any reading done with that huge window and amazing view to gaze at. (via @interior_spiration)

6. Pillow Heaven: Being surrounded by pillows with a warm cup of tea in hand sounds just about perfect. (via The Fashion Medley)

7. Platform Bed: Isn’t that coral color inviting? Also, no reading nook is complete without a cat. (via Design*Sponge)

8. Scandinavian Inspired: If you don’t need the hall closet, why not turn it into a reading nook? You can still get the same amount of storage by putting drawers or shelves underneath the seat. (via The Lettered Cottage)

9. Bold Colors: Charming for kids and adults alike, a mini library is the perfect way to utilize an awkwardly skinny room. (via @instatoddler)

10. Decorate Your Space: This is your own personal sanctuary, so decorate it accordingly with flowers and art that you l-o-v-e. (via Martha Stewart)

11. Exotic Flair: Travel to magical lands through a good book and the exotic fabrics of an upholstered reading nook. (via Green Muze)

12. Bedroom Design: Having a little sitting area for reading and relaxing will give your bedroom an air of luxury and warmth. (via Fieldstone Hill Design)

13. Warm Tones: Create a cozy cocoon with good lighting and warm colors to forget about the world. If you want a rustic look, use materials like wood, snow-white walls, wool, sheep skins and organic shapes. (via The Style Files)

14. Solitary Seat: A reading nook doesn’t have to be an actual nook. A hanging chair is a fun way to add a seat to the room without taking up valuable floor space. (via Oh Happy Day)

15. Highlight It: There won’t be any napping in this bold reading area. The bright colors will keep you awake for at least a chapter or two. (via Vtwonen)

16. Hang Curtains: If you want some extra privacy or want the option to hide your secret nook, hang some light curtains. (via Lonny)

17. Young Readers: Get them hooked on books at an early age with an irresistible reading area that’s just their size. We are totally digging this miniature teepee and fluffy pillows. (via Houzz)

18. Nature Inspired: Surround your reading space with things that inspire you and make you happy. If you love the beach, hang some ocean art and driftwood garlands on the wall. (via @chicvilleusa)

19. Layer Up: In our opinion, the more pillows and blankets, the better. The princess and the pea won’t have anything on you and your layers of coziness. (via @jenwoodhouse)
