Reading Spaces: Porch Swings

While hammocks are certainly easier to fit into a backyard space (especially if you get a stand for it) a porch swing would be nice as well. I’m a big fan of the ones that are so oversized they resemble a hanging bed – would be the perfect place to spend a lazy summer day! All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Home Office Inspiration

This weekend is shaping up to be another busy one, but I am so excited because I bought a new bookshelf for my garage office! So I can finally try to get the clutter under control. My garage office is not nearly as glamorous as the ones I’m drooling over below, but we all have to start somewhere, right? All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Dark and Moody

It’s finally starting to feel like winter here in San Diego. The skies have been grey, the temperatures cold, the nights foggy…it even rained a bit this week! All this wintery weather has got me leaning towards dark wood and moody home libraries. I hope you enjoy this week’s Reading Spaces, which is a departure from my usual light and bright spaces!

Reading Spaces: Happy New Year!

Is it too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year? Yes? Well, I’m going to do it anyway. I hope 2018 brings you all the books you want, the comfiest places to read them in, the most delicious cups of tea, and the most tolerant of significant others to turn a blind eye to the piles of books slowly overtaking the house. Happy … Read More Reading Spaces: Happy New Year!

The holidays are here! My house has been decorated since the day after Thanksgiving and I am loving the extra sparkles, pillows, and twinkle lights that have temporary taken over my living room.

Reading Spaces: Fireplaces

The holidays are officially in full swing! Depending on where you are in the world, it’s probably cold outside and maybe even snowing. While it may not be that cold in San Diego, I wouldn’t mind having a fireplace to curl up in front of with a new book to discover! All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Secret Passage Bookshelf

I don’t know why, but whenever I see a bookshelf that slides or swings to reveal a hidden passageway or room beyond, I always think of┬áThe Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Which makes this Reading Spaces post kind of holiday appropriate since the children cross over into a Narnia that is frozen in perpetual winter. All images via Houzz

Reading Spaces: Reading Perch

I always look forward to the holidays. Not merely because they’re fun, sparkly, and overflowing with tasty eats and drinks, but because everything slows down just a little bit and I can manage to squeeze in just a little bit more reading time. I’ve been reading very slowly this month, but with two bookclub books due (that I have yet to even start) I … Read More Reading Spaces: Reading Perch
