What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Spacious Farmhouse in Virginia
The bunk hall bridge over the porte cochere (the arched structure over the driveway, also called a carriage porch) is Barkley's favorite room in the house. Here, daybeds are placed at either end of the space with bookshelves tucked below and at each end. "The way the steps in the hall isolate this area make it cozy, protected and nap inducing," says Barkley.
Reading under the covers doesn't have to be confined to bedrooms — check out this inviting double-daybed setup in a hallway. Twin reading lights and a mini library make its intended purpose clear, and each daybed feels as though it's in its own private nook.
Add a passageway as part of a hall. If you have a very long hallway, consider breaking it up into bays. Here the passageway is nearly a room unto itself, as it houses a reading nook and a window seat with storage cubbies near the floor. Make sure you leave at least 36 inches of floor space for circulation.

For maximum flexibility, choose articulated reading lights that you can adjust to suit your height and your reading position. Go for a style that focuses light in a narrow beam rather than diffusing it over the surrounding space. VISUALC MF RT/CIRCA LIGHTING
