The key to your reading nook is to utilize clever storage and maximize comfort. There should be ample pillows and blankets, as well as a place to store your books for easy access and a place to put your cup when you have to turn the page. After all, what's worse then getting all settled in and ready to go only to find that you left your book on your nightstand and your tea must be precariously perched on the least puffy of the pillows instead of confidently placed on a cute coaster? Well, probably quite a few things, but you get my point.
Recently I decided to stop using my desk as an extra bookshelf and actually use it for its intended purpose. This meant clearing it of stacks of old magazines, tons of old journals, what seemed like 400 pens and pencils, as well as a myriad of other junk. After laying out what I intended to keep on/in my desk, I headed to my new favorite obsession The Container Store. They have literally everything you need to keep yourself organized. Now everything on my desk has its very own space and place and I can actually sit down to use my computer and do some work.
My next project? Getting my desk to look like these beauties I came across on Pinterest. Here are a few of my wish list items for decorating and beautifying my home work space.
