My Cozy Corner

I am of the mindset that every woman needs a tranquil space. A personal, private, and peaceful space reserved just for her. At the end of a long day I crave a bit of quiet, even if it is just for a few minutes. For me, this area of the home doesn’t need numerous square feet, but it does require a few essential pieces.

1. A comfortable chair in a soft fabric
Notice I did not say over-sized recliner (think lazy-boy) as these chairs, while extremely comfortable, are reserved for the man cave. I prefer something with style, but still cozy enough that I can sit there for a few hours at a time.

2. Location near a large window
The warmth of sunlight can turn a so-so space into a haven of happiness.

3. An accent piece
I like to surround myself with personal accessories, whether they be photographs of family and friends, images of places I’ve traveled, or items that have a story behind them.

4. Lighting
My tranquil space is for reading and relaxing so to make this area perfect, I need both ambient lighting as well as task lighting. A simple floor or table lamp at the appropriate height works great for reading, and a ceiling fixture (on a dimmer) provides general light in the space.
