Hello Monday

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and are looking forward to this week, which is week two of 2013! 
This week I'm sharing with you a few inspirations for our bedroom redo. We have made the first step of the redo... choosing the paint color! We will be painting this week and switching out some furniture. 
An element that I am adding to our room is a little reading nook in a corner of our room. It's right by the large sliding glass doors so tons of natural light for reading and it's the perfect space. I'm not sure exactly how I want it to look and how I will hold some of my books so I browsed online and decided to choose three inspirations and pull a little of something from each of them. 

I love the angle of the chair to the window. There is natural light behind and to the side. I don't have an awesome window seat like they do, but I can mostly achieve and angle like this.

The chair! The ottoman! So comfy. I still have to find a chair and see if I have room for an ottoman, but if I could I would choose these. I definitely want to put my feet up while reading.

I like the placement of the trunk tucked behind the chair to the side and it still being accessible. We have a trunk that isn't in use right now so I may use that to store my books and keep some accessories on top. I can't have a ton of storage space or I'll put too much crap there and that is definitely not what I want. Ha. 

What are your inspirations for the week? 


Pin It!

  5. Hi There,

    Stopping by from the GFC link up to share some aloha and to follow your story here. Oh I think I could sit on that window seat for hours and just take in the passersby.

    If you're up for a bit of a ride I'd love, love it if you'd join me at Local Sugar Hawaii . We're riding the wave of life together-- it's a sweet thing. 'hope to see ya soon.


  6. Haha, that is so like me - "minimal space please, or I'll end up with all sorts of junk living there!"
