A reading corner that is as intimate as it is confidently extravagant

Create a personal space that’s a freewheeling and playful take on the best memories of your life

What better way for a travel enthusiast to continue the vacay long after its over than to have their favourite collectibles around their favourite spot at home? Or for a maximalist to unwind among their favourite pieces by melding them into an intimate but vibrant reading corner. If you like to be surrounded by beautiful things and their stories, here is how you can recreate this look for yourself:

Cohesive not cluttered – Avoid just throwing together a bunch of things and hoping they work. Find a way to tie together patterns, prints, textures and accessories – for e.g. all wooden accents having the same stain or finish or matching a throw with a lampshade. The trick is to keep experimenting with lighting, furniture and other décor elements until you hit the sweet spot and it feels just right.

Method to the madness – As people of varied interests often find, there are pieces with a backstory that make them beautiful and ones that are stunning all by themselves. But a heterogeneous style means you can embrace all your favourites with the simple addition of say, a deep emerald wall as your display canvas or earthy coloured carpets to match the leather and wood accessories. Create your own sense of contrast and balance with several unique pieces co-existing peacefully in the same space.

An eclectically styled space means you can be many things - glamourous and rugged, audacious and modern. But it will always be uniquely you.
