A quiet and uncluttered reading area

Softness and light side reading corner

Åke Eson Lindman

This small cocoon arranged under the window of the living room invites to calm and serenity. Cleverly, the library was used to create a recess closer to the light source to install cushions, throws and bench. In a bucolic style, powdery pink and flowery fabrics adorn the space of softness, in the extension of the immaculate white prevailing on the walls and the ceiling. The designer furniture, meanwhile, is discreet in this space full of sweetness.

Spirit workshop in the reading corner

Petra Reger, Wertvoll photografie

The glass roof, recent darling of our interiors, offers this corner reading an unstoppable stamp. Antiqued wood bookcase, elegant black seats, polished concrete floor: the charm of the industrial style operates! Little more? The form of furniture such as boxes aligned. Shallow, it does not clutter the space but allows to compartmentalize the works.

On simple wooden shelves is a large collection of books, CDs and DVDs that extend into a recess with a retro record player. A secret and mysterious corner, where the decorative details encourage us to travel like this old planisphere in height.
