We’ve been so lucky in England this year as the country has actually had extended periods of super hot and sunny weather during the summer months. (I can almost hear my pals in LA laughing at our excitement at such a thing, but it’s a big deal to us over here in what is normally a perpetually grey country!) Anyhow, the beautiful weather led me to think of how much I’d love to create a daybed nook when I eventually buy a house. I think this space, complete with my favourite blue and white stripe IKEA bedding, would be the perfect place to chill out with a cloudy lemonade and the sunday papers. I love the way pattern and colour work hand-in-hand to invite visual punch into the space without impacting on the serene and relaxing vibe of the room. Plus, the windowsills full of potted plants invite the outdoors in and are a nod to the greenery beyond the windows. As well as being ideal for summer months, it would also be a lovely little nook to curl up in on rainy winter days. Do you have a favourite reading nook at home? Or maybe a space that works well for different seasons? I’d love to hear!
