The Joys of Reading Rooms
A good novel, a comfy chair, a couple of afternoon hours all to yourself -- on a cold winter day, such is the definition of luxury. Unfortunately, it's also a delight most busy moms don't get very often.
But for those occasions when you are able to steal some time to read, the pleasure is multiplied if the surroundings are right.
It doesn't take much -- an out-of-the-way corner of the house, a well-cushioned chaise or chair, a cuddly throw. And we guarantee -- if you create a cozy reading spot in your home, you'll find that everyone in the family will start to find an excuse to sneak off to it, a favorite book clutched in their hands.
For example, tuck a one-armed chaise like this one into the corner of the family room or bedroom. It's the ideal spot to spend a peaceful afternoon reading. Use the armless side to keep small table of necessities (your glasses) or niceties (a cup of tea) handy.
