One of the most essential pieces of furniture at home is a cozy reading chair. Our lives are ridiculously full of activity so having a chair that beckons to you to take time out for yourself is imperative. Carving out reading space in your home is about so much more than decor, it’s about self-care.
I found this great quote from Deborah Needleman’s Perfectly Imperfect Home:
“Making a charmed and happy home is a noble endeavor. The simple secret is making sure that every decorating decision contributes to the creation of beauty and comfort. Beauty to uplift our senses (to transcend the mundane) and comfort to make us feel taken care of (to embrace us in the mundane).”
And here’s my case for gray… or rather dusty silver, warm sandstone or cool fog (there’s a perfect shade for everyone). It’s calm, serene and inviting. A throw pillow or wall color can add the pop of color you crave. For a reading chair, though you want a respite from distraction. Here are a few that caught my eye. I’d just love to sink into one of these beauties with my new winter box books.
