Just Thinking about || My Ideal Reading Nook

October 03, 2013




I was floored when I saw this couch. Perfect shape, perfect fabric (they make wallpaper in this same pattern as well).  I just pictured myself running and jumping right in it as if it were a pool and just snuggling here with a good book.  This is pure coziness in my book.  And then to make matters worse I spotted this imitation of the Serge Mouille sconce, on which I have been crushing on for a while.  The real deal is prohibitively expensive (see here) so I was literally jumping on one leg when I saw this version. Anyhoo....someone please buy this sconce....it has such a good price, well at least in comparison to the real one, and it looks exactly the same.


Ok, next up in this ultimate lusting mode I'm in is this painting by Hunt Slonem.  I first saw his work via this article on Daun Curry.  She has a beautiful collection of bunnies in her little girl's room.   There are so many in this baby's gallery wall that my first thought was ' well they can't be that expensive' so I emailed the artist to inquire, and yes they are.  He has some fabulous parrots and other animals as well, but I like the bunnies the best. 

This table is perfect in all its green and lacquered glory and of course I had to add a little topiary to add to the lushness of this scene.  Perfect!  And what book will I be reading in this imaginary nook?  Well, my very well-read friend recommended this book which I will be picking up this week.

What are you thinking about today?

  2. I could camp out for many days on that couch. And I collect bunnies so I've lusted after Hunt's work for a while. So good.

  4. Love the whimsical bunny painting and think it could work in just about any space- a reading nook or a playroom. Hadn't heard of the artist- I'll have to check out more of his work. Great find on the Serge imitation lamp as well!

  7. Those bunnies are magnificent! I can see why you like the sofa. I've been crushing on that coffee table for awhile. Love the sconce, and the book sounds interesting, even Oprah is backing it.

  9. Not a huge fan of green but that lacquered table is a dream. Loves it. But I especially love the fact that you want a reading nook! A girl after my own heart. But the burning question is this: would you be snuggling with a paperback novel, or reading from your IPad or Kindle. Hmmm?
