Reading Spaces: Kitchen Reading

I don’t know about you, but I frequently find myself reading in the kitchen. Not cookbooks mind you, just sitting at the kitchen table or leaning against the counter and reading whatever book I’m currently in the middle of. So while I know the kitchens in this week’s Reading Spaces were designed with cookbook storage in mind, I could easily see myself slipping regular … Read More Reading Spaces: Kitchen Reading

Reading Spaces: White Bookshelves

This week’s Reading Spaces is dedicated to the humble white shelf! I love a good white bookshelf, it’s like a picture frame for your beautiful books! And it works with a variety of decor styles. I can’t wait until I can have a wall of white bookshelves like these examples! All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Classic Libraries

Is there anything better than stepping into a traditional home library? You know the type. Lots of dark wood, persian rugs, antique furniture, and wall-to-wall books. Since it’s pouring rain while I’m writing this, this week’s reading spaces is dedicated to the perfect place to curl up with a good book on a dark and stormy night. Rolling ladder and bottle of brandy not … Read More Reading Spaces: Classic Libraries

Reading Spaces: Unusual Bookshelves

For the longest time, I’ve always described my personal decorating style as beachy glam. Lots of white, blues, and greys with seaside and metallic accents. Recently though I realized that there’s such a thing called Transitional style and that pretty much describes my decor as well. Houzz has a nice definition of Transitional style here. Because of my style preferences, I’m a big fan of … Read More Reading Spaces: Unusual Bookshelves

Reading Spaces: Summer Lounging

Summer will be here before we know it and I’m already dreaming of whiling away lazy summer days with a good book. Truth be told, I burn easily so there isn’t a lot of difference between reading during the summer and reading during any other time of year. But that doesn’t stop me from fantasizing about basking in the sun, preferably on one of … Read More Reading Spaces: Summer Lounging

Reading Spaces: Children’s Room

One of my very good friends is having her first baby this summer. And that’s got me thinking a lot about how raising child is so different than when we grew up. 1995 is roughly considered to be the year the internet really became a thing for the average consumer in America. I was five years old at the time. We didn’t get an internet-connected … Read More Reading Spaces: Children’s Room

Reading Spaces: A Towering Pile of Books

I was sick recently and how I passed one of the days consisted of rearranging my bookshelves and creating my TBR stack. I posted a picture of it on Instagram here, but the pile is about 3 feet tall. It’s definitely become a problem in the last year or so that I have more books than fit on my bookshelf. This was the result both … Read More Reading Spaces: A Towering Pile of Books

Reading Spaces: Window Seat With a View

When I was last in Colorado, I went hiking with my boyfriend at Chautauqua Park. We followed a girl on the trail up between the first and second Flatirons until she left the trail to tuck herself onto a rocky perch overlooking the valley below. With a book. That girl hiked half a pretty challenging trail just to get to the ultimate reading spot…my kind of … Read More Reading Spaces: Window Seat With a View

Reading Spaces: Teal Painted Shelves

I really like white and grey. And I mean, I REALLY like it. But there’s just something so pretty about a painted bookshelf! If I could ever be convinced to brighten up my shelves, I might go for something like this beautiful teal. This week’s Reading Spaces is dedicated to gorgeous teal bookshelves! All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Rainbow Bookshelves

I’ve always liked how it looks to organize spaces by color, whether it’s clothes in the closet or books on the shelves. The fact that the books wouldn’t be organized by title or author doesn’t bother me. I have the Kallax bookshelf from ikea so I’ve loosely organized each cubby by books I’ve read and books I haven’t….and then stacked them like tetris so I … Read More Reading Spaces: Rainbow Bookshelves
