7 Reading Nook Design Ideas We’re Stealing From Instagram

by Monika Bürger

Is there anything more comforting than a cozy reading nook? Even when we see photos of these nooks on Instagram, we instantly feel calmer. To help us get inspired when it comes to creating our very own reading nooks, we’re going to be stealing the following ideas from Instagram.

1. Carve out a bookshelf space.

We love how @alexandra_nordwest arranged their bookshelves so that there is a space for an armchair. Naturally, they also surrounded the chair area with fairy lights.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux-down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

2. Utilize under-the-stairs space.

Even Harry Potter would love this staircase nook created by Brooke Wagner Design.

Our customers tell us ALL the time how soft and warm our Throw Blankets are (the secret: Sherpa fleece). Even better, they get softer the more you wash them. They’re a perfect addition to any living room couch. Featuring a crisp, vivid design on the front with a reverse white side.

3. Make it work with a cute cushion.

We’re loving this floral print cushion that @little_grays designed for a kid’s reading nook and play area. It proves that even a simple cushion can serve as a nook furnishing.

As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.

4. Arrange a balcony setup.

If you have a balcony, consider copying @gozdee81 and their stunning balcony space. Between the pink accents, warm lights, and florals, we want to spend the rest of our lives reading there.

From sideshow to show-stopper, our side tables will be a stunning modern accent to your space. Selecting from our wide array of artist’s designs printed with a satin finish on birch wood, you’ll take any room from zero to a hundred. Available in a square or round table top, and black or gold leg colors.

5. Consider corner-specific seating.

We love how @caitengler_realestate was able to carve out a designated reading space with a single piece of corner-specific seating. The gallery wall and floor lamp also help to make the area it’s own.

Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.

6. Use the rule of four.

In quite a few #readingnook photos, we’ve noticed that many people have the following four items: a seating area, a small table, a plant, and a light source. This is perfectly demonstrated in the above nook created by @michoneharris.

The Jack (or Jill) of all trades. Wall tapestries truly can do it all. They’re lightweight and easy to hang on the wall using thumbtacks, nails, or clothespins. The synthetic fabric is suitable for outdoor use too—making them a great option for laying out in a park or in the backyard. Tapestries are available in five sizes to fit any space.

7. Transform a closet.

One of our favorite reading nook trends on Instagram has to do with closets. Essentially, bookworms like @no7renovate are taking the doors off their closets so they can turn them into reading nooks. As you can see in the above photo, even a small closet will do.

You’re getting verrrrry sleeeeepy. (But someone needs to tell Netflix to chill. Yes, we’re still watching!) It’s easy to get lost in sleep in our warm yet lightweight natural cotton comforters. The natural fibers offer a breathable option to keep you cool in the summer and toasty in the winter. Plus, just like your favorite pair of jeans, our cotton bedding gets softer after each wash! Available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, and King sizes.
