3 Ways To Style A Special Nook

Come home to a space that's uniquely yours


Whether you live alone or share a family home, our choice of interior decor is a reflection of who we are. From the paint colors to the accessories—we may not take notice often, but all of these help build a space that's distinct to each of us. 

However, as much as we want to make our entire home a one-of-a-kind haven, we all have a favorite spot that we hold most dear—an escape of some sort when we want to take a break from reality. If you're looking for design inspiration that can help you customize your well-loved corner, look no further, we've listed down three styles that you can try out.

For The Girl Boss 

If you're the type who spends long hours in the office and always rushing from one meeting to another, chances are, you need a designated spot where you can unwind and release stress at the end of the day. Carve out an entertainment space in your living area, complete with cocktails and music. You can use a window ledge as a mini-bar and repurpose an old side table to make space for your vinyl player.

RL Tip: Feel free to add a soft lounge chair where you can relax while watching movies or your favorite TV series.

For The Crafter 

For the creative souls, a makeshift den with vintage and upcycled details would be the perfect choice. Instead of using the usual floral-printed wallpaper, go the extra mile and create an accent wall using crackled strips of wood. Finish it off with a cozy couch, unique flea market finds, and a bunch of items that can inspire you to work on your next project.

For The Bookworm 

Are you the type of person who would rather curl up with the latest NY Times Bestseller than go out on a Friday night? Maximize the empty hallway in your home by building a reading hideout. Make sure it has elegant seating, great lighting, a table to hold your mugs of hot chocolate and a few pretty knickknacks that can help give the space an inviting vibe.
