charming spaces: a delightful reading nook

I wish I could tell you more about this space and who designed it but, unfortunately, I seem to have lost the link to the feature on the website of El Mueble. I know I found this photo there ages ago and I have tried searching for it without any luck. I cannot remember if the article was about a flat somewhere in Spain or if it was just one of those features where they introduce new collections of home accessories. Whatever it was I think this is one delightful reading nook. The neutral colour palette works well here; I think it gives the space a sense of tranquillity. As you probably know already, I'm all for natural light, which this room has plenty of, and I find the ceiling and balcony doors simply gorgeous.

Today I'm trying to do the best I can to keep myself inspired and motivated but the weather is not helping. It seems to be pouring down rain every single day. I'm afraid our garden will soon turn into a jungle - a jungle of weed. Not pretty at all!

The good news is that ahead is a four-day weekend for school children in Luxembourg and apart from the occasional pinning with my coffee I'm setting the laptop aside. I have promised my son a Lord of the Rings marathon, starting with The Hobbit, and plenty of popcorn. What else is there to do in the rain?

I will be back on Wednesday. Have a wonderful weekend dear readers and blog friends!

  5. Beautiful corner, I want one just like it! I hope you both enjoy the marathon and have some popcorn for me--sounds perfect for the rain. Here it's beautiful with sunshine and a perfect cool breeze and I sadly must stay inside and work on...my website. So maybe I will have to watch a movie later too!

  6. that linen chaise is amazing. yes, i could spend hours there reading - though i think the windows and balcony area might distract me and i would find myself staring out that window at least half the time (happily, of course!)
