Every house has one: an awkward corner (or a bit of “blah”) in an otherwise well-dressed room. So what’s the solution? A seriously show-stopping nook, that’s what!
You don’t need a lot of physical space to create an environment which fills your heart with joy and relaxation. All you really need is to designate an area and furnish it with things you love.
The first step is deciding what your area will be used for, as this will determine what you need to include. You may want a spot to place your essentials when you come through the door, a space that you can flop down in with a book or magazine, or perhaps you’d like a defined work/create space in part of a larger room.
Here are some easily implementable ideas:
