Read and Relax Room Inspo

I’ve been pulling images and creating some inspo collages for my office, which I want to turn into a reading/ relaxation room. 

Since I’m still working on my thesis, I’ve been thinking about keeping a desk in there, but a much smaller desk than the original dark wood monster that was in there before.

Here’s what I’m feeling as of now:

I love the look of this room from Pinterest.

 
I pulled the photo above from Pinterest and was surprised that I loved it so much because it is not as pared down as the rest of my house. I like that the white keeps it bright and the sideboard at the bottom provides storage.

I liked the sideboard at the top if I decide to go with the look above. I also like the idea of a storage space that can double as a seating area under a window, since I have a big window with a good view. I would probably have a linen cushion made to put on top to make it more cozy and inviting. I like the idea of this “bar table” as a standing desk, and I especially like that the cubbies provide a place to keep my computer and office supplies.

Reading Room Inspo

 
Since it is a “read and relax” room, I definitely want some bookshelves. I have a ton of books! I know the wood shelves are the opposite of white, but I’m in the early stages of inspiration here! I saw these at Room and Board recently and they look great in person. Plus, there is no wall mounting necessary!

Finally, I like the idea of having a couch or chaise in the room to lounge on while reading and relaxing. I pulled these options from West Elm.
