Create a haven for your senses with a fluffy rug, luscious textiles, warm colors and a great view. Even the smallest space in your home can inspire a great set up for a relaxing nook. I love how the large windows light up the room and as the day winds down the slow dimming of light really helps you prepare for sleep.
