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”.

This one is just so sweet!  It looks like a small closet converted into a fantastic kid-size book-nook!  The lime green really makes it pop.  Plus the lamp that is just his size makes it his very own spot!

Window Seats

Window seats are so charming and classy! Look at these choices…

Jenny-Mike Nooks

Well, surely you didn’t think I forgot to add these cool personal touches to the Jenny-Mike project!?  Oh no!  We have some VERY cozy nooks in the making!!  Check em out!

This lil nook is in the first landing of the stairs as you turn to make your way to the 2nd floor. It will be a window seat upon completion.

This is the window in Mady’s room.  There will be a window seat bellow it and bookshelves on each side.

What do you think?  I’d love your feedback!  In the meantime, grab an old chair, find a forgotten corner and create your own favorite sweet spot!!
