shelving, a comfortable bench and a reading lamp to create a reading hideaway.
10. Create a staircase libraryClosed curved staircases can be a bit tricky, but this staircase is perfectly matched to this grand home library and its plentiful rows of books. The glow of the lamp paired with the high bookcases

This is no ordinary landing; it’s practically another room! Because the home’s traditional architecture is so clean and simple, we were able to contrast it with contemporary fabrics and artwork. Our client’s miniature chairs fit perfectly in the niche---a collection always has more impact when grouped together. We covered the window seat in a graphic Italian fabric, and added a bronze spot table to hold a book or glass of wine. Contemporary graffiti artwork completes the space. We’re told it’s a favorite...

added a bronze spot table to hold a book or glass of wine. Contemporary graffiti artwork completes the space. We’re told it’s a favorite place to sit, read, and watch the world go by.
bay window near stairs makes a nice reading nook w/o excessive heat/light into bedroom while still venting (north and east air is coolest in summer)

Having been neglected for nearly 50 years, this home was rescued by new owners who sought to restore the home to its original grandeur. Prominently located on the rocky shoreline, its presence welcomes all who enter into Marblehead from the Boston area. The exterior respects tradition; the interior combines tradition with a sparse respect for proportion, scale and unadorned beauty of space and light.

painting in one area of a wall-- perhaps with a hidden backroom for that opens into the outside within the house (perhaps another atrium) a private area to read or view the stars-- for security it should be on the highest floor-- stairs going up would be eloquent-- perhaps another spiral...
library -- and reading nook -- yes!
get the most reading and writing done in winter. It’s awesome. So energizing. I’m snug as an overwintering mourning cloak butterfly in leaf litter. I can work on book manuscripts while sipping hot chocolate or green tea. My cat seems more amenable to my body heat and snuggles me as I read an article on
on the chair. Everything is in its place, and everything is right in the world. Winter brings me home.See how to cozy up your reading spot
A staircase is a great place to add a simple and cleanly designed bookcase. The height of the space allows for plenty of storage in space that would otherwise go unused. The use of wood in this white space makes the bookcase the main focal point.

Like reading nook, using space under stairs
not quite this - but i like the idea of a nook somewhere for reading for kids (or us). window seats
Great idea - add a chair or two or contemporary loveseat with side table (or maybe a bench) for reading those books
simple white stairs; little reading nook
