LE BOOK NOOK



I’m starting small this year by introducing a sweet little space that I created for my daughter — with the help of my fab designer!  This is the sassy nook we dreamed up right outside her bedroom door.

When I was a little girl, I had a good sized closet in my room that my Mom converted into an “office” for me.  She tacked fabric to the ceiling and outfitted it with a small desk that my grandfather had refinished.  It was my “mission control” and I remember playing there for hours on end.  I wanted my daughter to have a special spot of her own and so was born her “book nook.” The wallpaper and fabric are Pierre Frey’s Le Jardin De Mysore, the light fixture…

These cozy corners are not just for kids!  Adults can happily indulge in a haute hideaway of their own…Like this serene space by LC Home Interiors:

Any of these special spots would make the perfect perch to curl up and contemplate the year ahead.  Blanket and tea cup not included.  Happy New Year!
