reading nook

I wouldn't mind having a reading nook in my home that looked exactly like this inviting space – oh my, silk curtains! How wonderful it would be to spend a few hours there  with a good book and latte, and perhaps a little chocolate too.

We are enjoying another wonderful sunny day with at least 20°C. I'm picturing myself reading a book in the Park while the children play. For dinner I've promised them to make lasagne and with it hubby and I will enjoy red wine from Corsica, which we recently tasted and absolutely love.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  1. I would NOT mind a reading nook either! In fact - I hope we can fit one in to our new flat up North :)
    Enjoy the amazing spring weather Lisa!

  2. Uhhh yeah - but I think I would have problems reading my book - because I couln't get my eyes from the view - what a wonderful old tree outside ;o)
    Sounds nice with lasagna and wine - enjoy a sunny day and life ;o)

  3. I think that would be my favourite spot in the house. Have a lovely Sunday, Lisa!
