1. Indoor Setting
Curling up with your favorite book ideally should be cosy and inviting. So, try to use soft materials like faux fur and other soft fabrics that can be super comfy as soon as you sit on it. You can go for a soft futon, leather recliner, vintage armchair with ottoman among others. Also, instead of a sofa or chair, you can also try for a swing chair, bean bags, or hammock chair. Add throw pillows, knit blankets and rugs among others for the ideal vibes.  

2. Outdoor setting
It is not necessary that you have to have a reading nook inside your home. You can have an outdoor alfresco style reading space surrounded by natural light, air and lush plants. You can add a bench, soft blanket, throw pillows, and plants in your balcony or patio area.

3. Lighting
Make sure that reading corners either gets the right amount of natural light and if not, add right lamps or artificial lighting as per your choice which is not too harsh or dull when you sit and read. Also, make sure the reading lamps or lights are accurately positioned.

4. What to add to the walls?
For the walls, you can add bookcase or shelf which has all your favourite reads, gallery wall or adds some decorative items or pieces that you have collected over a period of time from your travels on the wall hangings. 

5. Other decor stuff and things to note
You can also add woven baskets, stack up books to use as a side table or can have a different footstool. Add plants for that natural vibe. You can add a roof to the area with a draped curtain or fabric or canopy. 
Try to use airy and light hues not dark and dull decoration and wall paints among others.

You don't have to hustle hard just select a corner of your bedroom, add a cushy chair, lamp and side table voila! Your reading nook is ready! But make sure you don't make it a clothes chair. If you have a neutral setting then add a splash of colour by pairing something which is vibrant yet appealing.
