Ah-ha! I will try something like this! A reading nook. A place to sit & read, but not a place I can easily fall asleep, and definitely not a place where people will steal my office for a guest room :) EDIT: This is now my most popular pin!
Scandinavian Apartment is almost as if IKEA and your grandmother's vintage, antique style fused together to create these designs. <-- this yessss! White walls. Wood floors bring in the rustic element and the rug & books bring the pops of color!
