Write down the keys to enjoying your own rest space at home: the basic pieces, the best location and other details that will help you achieve a serene and comfortable environment.
Do not miss our keys and tips to create a rest area in the living room where you can relax and forget about everything.
In addition to a comfortable armchair, so that your corner of rest or disconnection is a really comfortable environment, try to equip it with these three basic elements: a pouf for your feet when you lie down; a side table will be very practical for you to put books or a coffee and a punctual lamp, such as a floor model located next to the seat. Nor will it hurt to have a basket in which to organize the books you are reading or to store a soft blanket.
A PAIR OF CUSHIONS: To take care of your back, place them in the lower back. It will be very comfortable for you.
Choose simple and functional furniture with very smooth curved lines. Remember that wood is a key element in Nordic decoration, just like white, black and gray tones. In any case, plan to achieve a diaphanous and spacious environment, without unnecessary artifice.
WHERE TO LOCATE IT
Think that to have a corner where you can read comfortably you do not need a lot of space. With something more than 2 m 2 it will be enough. Of course, try to assign a quiet place, away from the television, and near an entrance of natural light. To enhance that serene atmosphere, play with a color palette in delicate tones. By the way, remember that plants not only purify the air, they also relax and promote concentration. So put some up.
Perfect fusion. If you are looking for a decoration with character and personality, mix furniture of different styles and use a range of neutral and soft tones, to visually balance the whole. Ideally, there should be at least one special piece, either because of its design, its origin or uniqueness.
If there is something that cannot be missing when it comes to a reading corner, it is a space for books and magazines: from baskets, shelves or a small table, where you can have what you are reading close at hand, to a built-in bookcase with a large storage capacity. If yours is a true passion for books, a custom design that makes good use of an entire wall will be your star piece. Of course, no matter how many shelves it has, try not to fill it to overflowing so that the whole looks light.
LIBRARY WITH GRACE: Intersperses large and small books with photographs, sculptures
A design for you. Start by assessing what your needs are and what you are going to put. Do you have few books or many? Keep in mind that designs with symmetrical openings manage to convey more order. If you decide to do it in Pladur, a good idea is to paint it in the same color as the walls, so that it is integrated. The lacquered wood models in neutral tones are visually light and help to enhance the decoration.
To create a serene atmosphere, opt for a decoration without garish colors or ornamental saturation, where simplicity stands out. Surround yourself with elements that
make you feel good, like a soft blanket that, in addition to texture and color, invites you to snuggle up; soft quadrants and a pouf, footrest or floor cushion, to elevate your feet and make you more comfortable; and some beautiful candles that fill the atmosphere with warmth.
COLOR TRIO: White, wood and blue is an ideal combination for a relaxing climate.
Makeshift. Who said outdoor furniture is only for summer? Perhaps you have a seat so special that you are sorry not to use it during the winter. The classic deckchair with wooden slats, next to a window with lots of light, will be ideal inside the house. Complete the environment with a side table.
