A Place to Relax

My friend quite literally gets lost in a book.

It doesn’t matter where she is; she zones out and is completely enthralled in whatever it is she’s reading.  She almost missed a flight home from Paris once because she was so caught up her in book, she didn’t hear her flight announcement.

I was never one of those people. I’m more inclined to read an article online or just flick through a magazine than sit down with a book.  And of course I’m always rushing somewhere so I never take the time to just chill out and relax.

But I wonder if I’d find the time if I had a little area like one of these to curl up in. 


How about you?  Have you a little corner in your home where you get away from the world?

About Karen

My name is Karen Hughes and I'm an Interior Designer from Dublin, Ireland. I’m passionate about design and I started this blog as a way to connect with others just as passionate as myself. I tend to ramble on about all sorts of things, projects I’m working on, people, places and things that inspire me (and some that don’t). So put the kettle on, get comfy and settle in. I hope you enjoy your visit and don't forget to say hello. Visit my website to find out more about my services and view my work.


  1. Love the nooks under the stairs and in the alcoves, they were my favourites until I saw the 'pod' type hanging chair – oooh. I love curling up with a book and the problem is, if it is really good, I can't put it down until I've finished it which leads to neglected work, neglected children, neglected house, therefore, I have to limit myself to one or two books a month – luckily I read very quickly!

    Fab images Karen.

  2. Isn't the bubble chair just fantastic. I may have to invest in one! Even have a space where it would fit nicely 🙂
