When you walk through a house do you look for details? Areas that seem to invite you to stay and hang out for a while? I bet, even if you don’t look for them, they catch your eye when you see them. There is something about a very small space that is uniquely designed. Especially, a nook with fabric cushions and pillows! A spot that makes you want to curl up with a cup of coffee and a book! Or have an intimate chat with a loved one! These little spaces turn a “house” into a “home”.
Here are 20 examples of fabulous and cozy nooks…
