The cozy season is upon us! Along with scouring the area for the best pumpkin spice latte or shopping for the perfect sweater, a great way to welcome fall is to create a hygge-inspired reading nook in your home.

The key to the perfect reading nook is to make it as cozy as possible. To achieve this, make sure you have these three essentials.

Comfy Chair/Ottoman

A comfortable seat that you can really sink into is vital for a reading nook. This mustard-colored seat from Wayfair is both stylish and cozy. If you prefer softer tones, opt for this pick from West Elm. West Elm also has this swivel chair that is perfect for curling up with a bestseller in hand. Keep your feet cozy too and don’t forget to incorporate an ottoman.

Pillows and Blankets

Next on the agenda is stocking up on pillows and blankets for your nook. We recommend sourcing a blanket basket and folding up a variety of throws inside of it. Throw pillows are a great aesthetic choice and offer neck support when diving into that novel.

Treat your senses by surrounding your reading nook with fantastic scents. Illuminate the nook with the soft glow of fall candles or opt for an essential oil diffusor. We recommend mixing different essential oils for a seasonal experience.
