If you live in a vintage apartment or condo, you just may be fortunate enough to find yourself with a decorative, albeit decommissioned, fireplace in your home. What that really means is you’ve got a fireplace, but it doesn’t work, right?
Make it work with this fireplace turned reading nook inspiration; because a non-functioning fireplace is a perfect opportunity to create a cozy reading nook for the kiddos!
In this design, I’ve layered our colorfully geometric rug with a cozy beanbag lounger. Stack books up in the empty fireplace and add colorful bins or a book cart for even more storage. Your little guy or girl will be thrilled to have their own mini-library in the living room! Don’t be surprised if you find yourself hanging out here as well.
