26 Reading Nooks That Are Equal Parts Snuggly and Stylish
In designing a brand-new apartment overlooking New York’s Central Park, Kati Curtis faced a challenge: how to create a cozy niche in the high-traffic main hallway? “The obvious solution was to put a freestanding bench here,” she says, “but I wanted to create a nook that could serve not only as a place to put on your shoes before you head out the door but also as a place where you could hang out with a good book.”
How to Craft a Beautiful Breakfast Nook
“When designing a breakfast nook, feel free to layer themes and make the space a little more playful,” says Curtis. “This isn’t your formal dining space, so it allows for more creativity. In this instance, we wanted to be respectful to the history of the space but we also wanted to give a surprising twist. Along with that crazy moth wallpaper and a banquette we designed, we layered a very modern, Lucite table on top of an antique needlepoint rug.”
