reading nooks in closets
Sometimes you want to go be alone and read in a dark, cozy corner somewhere. Closets are the perfect venue, if you can deck them out properly.

The closet, which is oddly-shaped, and sits under a staircase, makes for the perfect place to hide out and write. The desk is made of reclaimed lumber, and the shelves are made of old drawers (and allow storage in the closet still). A collection of keys on tiny hooks sits beside the desk, and a couple of old speakers with an aux cable lead offer music or white noise. The walls and ceiling were painted a deep, indigo blue, with gold stars stenciled on them. The lighting is dimmable, and bright enough to read a book without glare or feeling overwhelming (thanks partially to the dark paint).
