  1. If you don’t have the funds to go big, try a DIY approach with boxes or crates like this one. Top it off with some colorful cushions and accent blankets and you’ve got an inspiring place!
  2. This reading nook is built in—not always an option—but it is topped off with colorful and interesting textiles which create a more welcoming effect.
  3. And if you don’t have the space inside, take your reading nook outdoors! Put up a line of rope from tree to tree and drape it with a sheet. Add in blankets and pillows and you’re set!
  4. No, we all can’t have a room with this view, but we can learn that a simple pad on the ground is cozy!
