So we’ve been in our new house now for a month and it’s amazing how much there is to do! In terms of DIY we have lifted carpets, sanded wooden floors, painted two bedrooms (including skirtings – a slight backache nightmare) and hung curtains. And there’s plenty more to come… In the meantime though I’ve started dreaming of a few little nooks – places to retreat to and spend time in.
I’ve seen some great nooks in some houses – from under the stairs sitting or storage space, to an alcove or bay window. I’ve seen cupboards changed into walk in book shelves with a cosy chair, and cute kitchen corners turned into a newspaper and coffee nook. I’ve seen quaint wash nooks in old-fashioned restaurants and quiet outside spaces where wrought iron furniture and potted plants make the place their own. I love a good nook – the whole point is to USE it, and not to simply create it and leave it.
In that vein of thought, here are 10 cute, stylish and elegant nooks that I thought I must share with you 🙂
