Reading Nook

Reading Nook 1

Just like anyone living with small children knows, the chance to dedicate a space to quiet time should not be missed.  While the design team outfitted a specialized playroom neighboring the kitchen, Innovation House designers choose the quaint space at the top of the grand staircase as a reading nook for grown-ups.  Cozy and stylish with a tailored single-cushion settee flanked with metallic side tables, Innovation House’s reading nook is a soothing intellectual retreat.

During the day, this space is filled with the warmth of natural light.  During the evening, a feminine yet stately chandelier and single light sconces with large rectangular shade provide the perfect ambiance for reading or intimate discussions.  Continuing the European farm house aesthetic present throughout the rest of the house, a sleek grey paint was chosen for the walls and hardwood floors by Mohawk in Cognac Maple run up the grand stair case and short set of steps to the reading nook topped with a double tray ceiling.
