Get the Look #6 - Reading Space


Hello Readers!  

Happy long weekend!!

This is the conclusion of this season's "Get the Look" series.  From next Friday, I will be posting on interior design ideas that you can implement in your own home.  Each week's post will have a unique focus. ;-) "Get the Look" will return in June with some fresh content for the new season!

This week's "Get the Look" considers a less traditional home space - a reading space.  Reading spaces are wonderful in a bedroom, study or incorporated into a lounge space.  It is a space for a bit of quality time with a book and a cup of coffee or maybe a ponder or snooze now and again. ;-)

I love this cozy suspended seat with soft pastel cushions, a little stool and a view to the garden.  The natural light and flowers contribute to the enjoyment of this space.

- Natural timbers and yellows contribute to a warmer look and feel.
- A stool is a great substitute for a side table and doubles up as extra seating.
- Pastel tones are currently on trend, shades of mint, light pinks, pale yellows and light blues can be used successfully alone or in combinations.
- A swinging seat is comfortable, relaxing and whimsical.
- A cow hide rug is a bold accent to a neutral space.
- Bottles and vases of different shapes and sizes form a sweet collection and can be placed on a window sill or shelf with stacked books.

All of the items in the product board are available to South Africans.  Click on the corresponding numbers to link to the product website.

If you would like me to feature a look you love with a board of South African furniture alternatives, please comment with a link to the look.  I will select a variety of entries for next season's Get the Look in June 2014!

Have a wonderful weekend!  ;-)
