The Reading Spot



Pin It

Look, there is a spotted pillow in the reading spot :)) Sorry, I just couldn't resist the pun. It looks like there are more doors than corners in my small apartment, because of the architecture itself and because I tore down some walls when I redecorated it. So the quiet corner is near the door, but who cares... I've assorted the Mad Hatter poster to a tiny lithography in the same colors. One big and one very small, I love the contrast between those two pieces of art on the white wall. Their vivid colors are completed by the earth tones of the wooden stool, the Ikea pillow and the pine wood door. Oh and I'm currently reading a SF novel by the Strugatsky brothers.

  1. Ciao Meeha,

    I love your fresh "composing", specially the black rug!!. You are also in my blog rol now!!
    I decided to cancel my account with the Hellocotton platform because they have mix DIY and INTERIR DECOR together, too much confusion!. How can we compare our blogs with people who sew or crochet ago, or just post one photo!!.
    It does not seem that interesting blogs who inspire, create trend in interior decor, that truly committed in their posts and blogs, giving a serious image of their work are, lost between three thousand DIY Blogs!. I can't see the talent of many blogger, is lost!!!.But thisis my own opinion.
    Thats all,Meeha. Happy cold weekend!!!
    Xoxo,Eva

  3. Such a succesful combination of different styles, great job! (but I have to admit Johny Depp gives me the creeps in this poster)

    1. Multumesc de vizita! Perna cu buline e de la Ikea, cred ca o stie toata lumea.... dar mie imi place foarte mult si la scurt timp dupa ce am primit-o cadou am gasit si o paturica cu un model foarte asemanator (si asa, s-a umplut canapeaua de buline :))))

  9. I totally need a cozy reading spot like this. I have the most comfortable reading chair, however it is in the middle of my living room - not so cozy. PS. I love your Alice poster!

    1. Big fan of Tim Burton here, Yelle (a good friend brought me this Mad Hatter poster all the way from London!). I think you can also make use of your gorgeous yellow chair for a cozy spot of your own :)

    1. Lisa, you have a great eye for detail! The yellow cup is the "cherry on top" and it says "My everyday coffee"

  15. A quiet corner can find his way everywhere in a home.. I love the palette you choose, it's peaceful and reminds to the nature and woods. And the mad Hatter... a pinch of madness that never hurts!
