Finishing touches: cosy corner

Turn that empty spare room, or corner space, into an enticing area for the adults of the house – a sophisticated and comfortable reading room.

The first rule for creating a reading area is to ensure you have the correct lighting. Invest in suitable overhead bulbs, as well as feature lighting. The Ari twin floor lamp is ideal as a personal reading light as the toggle switches are located on the fully adjustable head of the lamp itself. The brushed copper finish of the lamp is complemented by the matte black metalware and black cloth cord. It’s available from Andrews Light Up.


This gorgeous couch is calling our name! The customisable Audrey fabric lounge is available in a range of fabrics and colours to suit your style. Supported by tapered timber legs, the Audrey, which also comes as a chaise lounge, is elegant. Sink into plush-back cushioning with your choice of a scatter-back or full-back design. On the chaise, a reversible design lets you choose between a left- or right-facing configuration, to adapt to your room’s design. It’s from Domayne.


Add a burst of beauty and colour into your room with the Artbox Abstract Hair wall art from Harvey Norman.


Invest in quality shelving to give your books the home they deserve. Made from Sheesham wood with a natural finish, this bookshelf looks great stacked with additional bookshelves, as pictured. It’s from Nick Scali.


The cotton and velvet Fern cushion features a textured, smooth-to-the-touch appeal. A vertical fern pattern creates a layered effect sure to pop against your lounge or chair. It’s from Domayne.


We love!
The Elwood mustard velvet throw from Adairs.


The New York Times bestseller, The Vanishing Half by Britt Bennett.


Layer textures to create a homely feel. The Evoke Homage grey rug blends modern and traditional styles and will bring an additional element into your space. It’s from Choices Flooring.


An occasional chair is a must for any reading room and we love the Home Republic Miami one-seater in petrol blue from Adairs.
