Being on lockdown does not need to be boring… While reading is a great way of keeping your mind off some unpleasant things, you can jazz up the experience by transforming some rooms of the house into even more comfortable ones! Play around with some materials you already have at hand and set up a cosy corner as per your preferences.

Here are our best ideas for your personalised reading corners, whereby you can enjoy a good book, watch funny videos, write your memoirs, or just keep up with the news.

Make your baby dream

Why not set up a small reading corner in your child’s room? You may enhance the warm and relaxing atmosphere with the help of soft lights, stuffed animals, cushions and his/her favourite toys.

A teepee for indoor adventures

A mosquito net, a sheet or curtains… Let your imagination flow and create a cosy little teepee. With celestial tones and accessories (such as stars, moon or astronaut figurines), bedeck the tent as a reminder of the Milky Way. You may opt for a pink and super girly teepee as well, using a lot of flowers, dolls or photos of her favourite characters.

You don’t have a teepee? Don’t worry! It is very easy to make, using a few pieces of wood or bamboo, twine or rope, and some fabric you have at home.

Indoor bucolic surroundings…

In a corner, far from the back and forth movements of the house, bring your favourite plants and flowers, add some cushions and throws, and create an intimate and peaceful space.

Adding some peps

Colours… Aren’t they the best allies to boost your concentration? A side table and a lamp, along with a flashy armchair, shall revive an entire room, turning it into a perfect cocooning zone.

Revamping the living room

Have you ever thought of altering your living room? Revamp this convivial space where the family can gather. Indeed, with the help of a mat, demarcate the space of your reading corner. Then, above all, cushions galore! With your favourite books on the floor, everyone can lie down and enjoy a good read. Illuminate the space, with lamps, or even garlands and candles. You can choose to have an armchair and a lamp next to it, for an even more comfortable reading corner.

And the balcony revives

A terrace or a balcony can be a breath of fresh air during these confinement times. On a hanging chair surrounded by plants, with birds chiming or the starry sky, enjoy the pleasures of being outside while respecting the confinement measures.
