Sanjyt Syngh reveals exquisite reading nook designs
The designer offers an easy yet elegant guide to creating a cosy space in your home
Delhi-based interior designer and stylist Sanjyt Syngh, known for his bold and creative ideas, throws open some exclusive, intimate reading nooks that make staying isolated in a corner with a favourite book all the more attractive, and even glamorous.
Is there a better way to escape from the mundane than be cocooned in a beautiful corner with a book? As we are sequestered at home, fortunately, most of us have reclaimed our love for reading and the solace it offers.
“With the current confinement to our homes, the concept of home has taken on a new meaning. We are not going out to restaurants, bars and coffee shops, so it is important to bring them home. I propose we create beautiful nooks to enjoy the pleasure in the comfort of our home. After a long day of exposure to your laptop screen, one of the most satisfying ways to wind down is curling up with a good book,” says the designer.
These stunningly exquisite reading corners designed by Sanjyt Syngh are inviting. His ingredients for a cosy nook are an ultra comfortable chair, luxurious throw that is as important as a good book, a down feather cushion that can give you the comfort to be hooked to Instagram for hours, ambient lighting that can be in the form of a lamp, a side table for that cup of coffee or whiskey sour, and a footstool to add comfort.
With a bit of thought, and smart use of colour and patterns, these nooks can become a highlight area in any space. Coordinate the drapes with the upholstery and extend them to the walls with fabric paneling for a luxurious look.
With all this in place, now all you need is that book.
