Reading Nook

In the corner of our living room I wanted to make a cozy little area to read or sit.

I started with the arch that I painted Windham Cream as a backdrop.

I added a white washed star to the arch and love the way it turned out!

Since my boyfriend lived in Hilton Head for a few years, I purchased a map of South Carolina on Etsy and had it customized for our wall.  It turned out perfect!

My FAVORITE part is the shabby chic chandelier!  How cute!  The best part?  $39!

With the addition of a toile chair and an adorable ladder, the nook was complete!

Update! I removed the star piece because I think it felt too cluttered and replaced it with pretty cherry blossoms in a galvanized pot. I think it simplifies the look a bit more.
