Creating a cozy reading nook in a portion of your home can promote a sense of tranquility and contentment like nothing else. Julianne Barbas of Jules Jetsets shares how she created her own comfy corner with our Briar chair.
My style has evolved and become far more minimalistic since moving in with my significant other and I’ve had a much larger focus on creating a cozy, easeful space for us both. Particularly, I have wanted our bedroom to be a place that promotes relaxation and contentment.
1. Choose a Style
I’ve had a vision of creating a cozy bedroom reading corner ever since we first moved in. Finding the perfect marriage of colors and textures was important to me. I wanted Scandinavian elements with some sprinkled in pops of color. Pinpointing my signature style hasn’t always been effortless – but travel has definitely played a pivotal role in inspiration. I’ve particularly fallen in love with Nordic & Danish interior because it’s an aesthetic that can be easily elevated or subdued by the use of color!
2. Choose Your Furniture
The bedroom did prove to have some challenges along the way. There was only one obvious part of the room that was big enough to allow for a corner chair – but it was aside of a large window that leaked in copious amounts of natural light. The Joybird Briar chair in Royale Evergreen ended up being the PERFECT accent piece for the space. The lush green thoroughly complements the other neutral tones throughout the room. I also love how the Rune Floor Lamp adds an extra layer of modernity to the space as well. Our bedroom is truly our little haven now!
