My New Reading Corner!

My Scandinavian Home partnership: 

Do you have a 'lost corner', in your home? A place that doesn't really add any value?! The corner of our sitting room is not strictly 'lost' - it does serve as a nice spot for binge-watching Netflix - but that's really about it - it's too dark for anything else! With the imminent arrival of Autumn (there's already a crispness in the air in Sweden - eeek!) and the days getting shorter (nooo) I finally decided to create a cosy spot that can also work as a reading corner.

Say hello to the Zuiver Shady Double wall Lamp from Houseology. I didn't choose it just for the fabulous brass and grey powder coated steel finish (honest!) - I also love that the lamp heads tilt so it can be used for reading and putting pretty things in the spotlight such as the dried flowers or one of my prints.

I also added this little Zuiver side table (after all - it's imperative to have somewhere to place your coffee / tea / glass of wine while you read, right?!). It was a tricky selection process since our sitting room is fairly monotone and that corner in particular is very tight. In the end, I was taken with the Carrara marble top and cast iron legs on this little table - both of which add texture in a pretty, yet subtle way.

How beautiful is that grey marble?! FYI for those of you who prefer a lighter look, it's also available in white.

Now that it's all in place, I'm wondering why on earth I didn't do this ages ago! Isn't that always the case? I owe a big thanks to the online interior design store Houseology - who recently added the Scandinavian-style Dutch brand to their fabulous list of brands.  Tack!

I hope this inspires you to transform that lost corner of your home too!

In the meantime, if anyone's looking for me this weekend, I'll be right here with a book!

Have a wonderful couple of days friends, see you Monday!

This post is brought to you in collaboration with Houseology,  however all words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love and think you will too.


  1. Cosy, comfortable, stunning....absolutely stunning. I am very envious! It is rare that I see an interior so beautifully useful, annnd so aesthetically pleasing, in every way. Your 'new reading corner' is truly wonderful!

    1. You are so kind, you’ve totally made my day - thank you!

  2. I LOVE it! you choices are spot on. Enjoy your autumn cuddles in your new found corner.

    1. Thank you Claire, so happy you liked my picks! No idea why it took me so long, but I’m so happy I got round to it justvin time for the weekend (and autumn!).

  3. I want to marry you just so I can sit there

  4. I just love watching all the big and small updates at your home! I need to say your sitting room has always been beautiful and cozy but maybe you were right about the lost corner... Just a new lamp and little table and it got some twist! Although for me the most cozy pot in your house is that lovely window nook. :)


    1. Thank you Natalie. Ah, yes, I do love the window nook. Sadly so do my kids so I rarely get to sit there!! Let’s hope this little corner can be mine!

  5. Love the table - and the whole room! Do you think they will ship to Canada?

    1. Oops - read first, comment later. They do ship to the US and Canada - and it's very expensive - $85 to $125. Is the quality of the table worth the additional price, do you think?

  6. I love the table but only you can make that decision. I guess the shipping costs are high because the marble weighs a ton!
