One of my favorite corners of our house is the one in our bedroom for many reasons. First of all, I adore the yellow chair that we found at a thrift shop for 60 bucks. It was the perfect color and the fabric was in great shape. The only thing I did to update it a bit was cut off the fabric that hung around the bottom and used a staple gun to attach the excess fabric underneath the chair. I got the ottoman at the same thrift shop and covered it with fabric to match our room.
Another reason I love this little nook is the unexpected "art" on the wall. I painted four Ikea spice racks white and used them to display a few of my clutch bags. I also framed one of B.J.'s old ties to add a masculine touch.
One thing we need to do is hang some curtains in a major way. It's been on the to-do list since we moved in two years ago. But other than that, it's the perfect cozy spot to read and write.
