It’s amazing how much you can do in a little corner with a view. For my bedroom, a tufted chaise lounge was my seating of choice for comfortable hours of reading. A glass of wine never hurts either, especially in one of my favorite mirrored trays. Trays are super functional (especially for my cookie crumbs…) And of course, every chaise needs a huggable pillow. I couldn’t find one that really hit the nail on the head, so I designed one myself! This roll pillow is my own creation in the Shanghai textile markets and I found some luxurious-looking curtain tassels in the tassels market to match. I know, I never knew such a place existed either, but it’s a very visually-exciting spot to duck around, with tassels in every color you can imagine. The vibe I wanted for my reading corner was modern yet classical. To achieve this, I mixed in a gold-legged art deco side table and some embroidered Chinese knot coasters. The effect was elegant yet fully functional. What’s your favorite part of this reading nook?
