Everyone needs a little space now and again to escape and a quiet corner of the room may be all it takes. Whether it is to snuggle up with a good book or quietly enjoy a cup of tea, creating a cozy corner retreat in your home can give you the “me” space you need. Here are a few cozy corner retreats to inspire and tips on how to find and design your own.
Carve out a small space for your corner retreat in the living room, bedroom or any other room in the home where you feel most comfortable. The first order of business is comfortable seating. This can be a cozy chair, a hammock or bench.
Lighting is the next item on the list. A beautiful floor lamp or a table lamp for the space can brighten your retreat. Even better, you can position your space next to a window to take advantage of daytime light.
Personalize the space with wall art and accessories that are important to you. Surround yourself with the things that you love. Make your corner retreat extra cozy with pretty decorative throw pillows.
Include a side table and footstool for a place to put your drink and your feet.
Your cozy retreat can be a movable one, taking you wherever your whim decides. With plenty of blankets and pillows for maximum comfort, you can build your own little escape destination by a window, in the kitchen breakfast nook or in the corner of any available room.
For the reader, placement by a bookshelf is ideal and is visually appealing within a room.
Carving out a space of your own in a busy household can sometimes be a challenge. Get creative and find a spot that is comfortable and off the beaten path in your home. Even if you have to hang a sign designating the space yours, create a cozy escape by personalizing the space and making it comfortable.
A cozy chair, a place to prop your feet and a side table or tray for drinks are all that you need to start the design of your little space. Whether it’s temporary or will remain for the duration, your cozy corner retreat is a space to wind down, relax and enjoy a few moments of “me” time.
