a little nook(ie)

I know Christmas is over, but does anyone remember the original Santa Claus movie?

This one...

Now for a little more of a stretch...
Does anyone remember that Santa and Mrs. Claus slept in a cupboard in the wall?

I have always been captivated by how cozy that would be to sleep in a big cupboard!

Probably a little more practical than a huge cupboard is a nook...

I've never thought I would want a nook to sleep in full time - but I would love a little space like this for reading and napping!  I could spend lazy weekends on one of these easily!!

This looks slightly uncomfortable but oh my goodness how beautiful!!

Probably the most practical is a deeper windowseat that looks like a daybed.

Who says you need a headboard??

Completely love this one...
(unless you need to get up in the middle of the night - yikes)

I am aware this is a little bit of a childish infatuation, but I completely love little nooks!!

  1. Those nooks remind me of the little nook at the girls retreat house!! Remember that?! i really wanted to take it, but felt selfish (cause i know everyone secretly, or not so secretly LOVES a nook!)
    Since i've been reading your blog i now have this huge fantasized house in my head that i can only HOPE my future home lives up to even by half! LOL

  2. Umm, I'm imagining making and changing those beds. Not fun.

  3. This is such a great topic! I'm not sure which I'd prefer but I'd love to have somewhere to escape for a read and Sunday afternoon nap!

    Great idea for a blog, I love that it's the 2 of you! I'm now following :)



  4. These are the most wonderful looking beds in the whole world!!! the first has got to be my favorite. I'd shut the doors and never want to leave.. ever! LOVE!
