Style a Secret Shed

Most people dream of home offices, man caves and play rooms. My ideal secret shed would be a reading nook. I'm a book nerd. I've always got about three or four books on the go. So for me a space to rest and read would be the perfect place. First of all I would be grabbing a gorgeous shed from Tiger Sheds. One that would sit in the corner of a garden hidden away from everyone. My own secret escape!

I'm not one for bright colours so I've gone for a muted grey with some bright touches. I find when I read I can't deal with too many distractions as it takes me away from the story. However I love soft fabrics and furnishings so I knew that the place had to be cosy. 

The grey wingback chair is a dream for me. One that is big enough for me to curl up on and drift away to another world in my books. This one seems perfect and would be awesome to have if I was reading Max and his friends a story in there. 

Of course I've picked some bright cushions in mustard and blue, these compliment the grey tones well and would be great for hiding behind if I'm reading a story thats a bit scary. The rug is a bit of a statement piece and would definitely be one of the focal points of the room.

Finally I've picked an art print of my literary hero Matilda for the wall. To be surrounded by that many books is a dream and in my own reading nook it would be a fitting choice. A book nook is a dream for me. And probably my other half too as our flat is a bit like a book shop at the moment!
