I love a good nook, especially when it’s filled with books. These images will make you want to find a space in your house and create a nook of your own…stat. From converted closets, to simple ledges and book bins, these spaces are where parent & child create life’s best memories.
1. Converted closet by Tiny Sprouts with seating to boot 2. Book ledges and stripes make a brilliant combo, by Elizabeth Sullivan Design 3. A flea market rack is a beautiful thing from found, now home 4. Modern book bin by Dejligheder, find one similar at Land of Nod of BOOK/SHOP.
5. Wire book rack, find one similar at Cox & Cox 6. Book ledges on a wallpapered wall are to die for, here is a good DIY 7. Oh Happy Day’s SF apartment, she bought these book bins from BOOK/SHOP 8. Converted closet hangout from Martha Stewart
9. Coziest bed & reading nook yet (and I love the John Robshaw pillows) from Design Sponge 10. All you need is an Ikea hutch and a bean bag from Caitlin Wilson Home 11. Well-used corner space converted into library wall from Kids-o-Mania 12. Library book rack with proper seating for tea – find similar racks at The Land of Nod or PBKids
13. Shelving with graduated sizing ends with a hanging art (find clips at IKEA) from La Maison d’Anna G 14. Creative use of IKEA spice racks, or use PBKids shelves 15. Cable spool made into book storage – tutorial at The Little Mist, and more spool ideas at ScrapHacker 16. Love the use of the wagon for books from Honey We’re Home
17. A simple shelf and rug make this nook special from Design Mom 18.

Coolest closet turned book nook + hideout from Dos Family, more closet nooks at Apartment Therapy 20. For me, it’s the color that makes this nook so happy, from Desire to Inspire

I love the use of black shelves for a change + the retro cafe seating, from Kids-o-Mania 24. And last but not least…why not clear a shelf in the bookcase for a little bookworm?
We are starting to pack up our house around here. We are moving (ahhhh!!!). As daunting as that will be, I am excited to create some new spaces. I hope to share them with you in the new year.
PS: My posts will be a bit thin during the move, but I won’t leave you high and dry. I do have some cool holiday posts planned, so stay close!
