What Houzz contributors are saying:

A pile of velvet pillows make this a very appealing spot to get cozy.
Margaret Everton added this to Reading Rooms
This shows how even the end of a room can be segmented for more reading privacy. Even when not in use, the curtain adds a soft, classic touch to a library. For a traditional fall/winter weight, think velvet.
"Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house." –Henry Ward Beecher To a lot of people, built in bookshelves and a built in place to read define the good life. This nook is flooded with light and a few hours in this space would cure even the worst case of winter blues.
Lily Gahagan added this to Window Seats: For Winter or Whenever
This niche looks about as padded and plush as can be. A cup of tea and a book are all you need for a long day indoors.
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Cuddly Nooks for Every Room
Close off one end of a room with a drape. There's no need to add a physical wall to create a separate space. A drape works just as well, and an added bonus is the warm cozy feel that all the fabric creates when it is pulled closed. Place a chair, chaise, or window bench behind the curtain and relax. To get this look, use a ceiling rod bracket from Country Curtains with a 3/4" rod, add rings and hang a drape or drapes.
Samantha Schoech added this to It's Curtains for You
Curtained-off reading nook, no window needed. Here, the curtain becomes architecture.

on Tuesday
the bookshelves might have to line the hallway for stage one unless/until we create the 4th bedroom as guest room/library. Other option is put them in the entry room with the fireplace and porch access.
