Living Room Inspiration : Corner Shelves

In our living room, we have this little nook that we have set up as a "reading nook" right now. <I posted about it here a few months ago.> We like how it's set up now, but have talked about trading in the big, comfy chair for two smaller "accent chairs" in that corner. We've had that chair for many years and it's served us well.. but it may be time for a change. 

Another thing I'd like to try in that little nook are corner shelves. A few weeks ago, I saw the the most beautiful corner shelves featured on the A Beautiful Mess Official Instagram feed. How gorgeous does this look? I just love those corner shelves! 

Below is our current corner nook set up beside the inspiration:

So now I'm on the hunt for budget-friendly accent chairs that will fit in that corner well and look good under some corner shelves! Since we moved in last December, this house has been so much fun to decorate and make "our own". I like documenting the little transitions here to remember the fun and creative process of inspiration, searching and "perfecting". It's a silly hobby but I love it :)

Hope you have a great Tuesday!


  1. I'm forever on the hunt for budget friendly furniture as well. Currently looking for a bright colored rug...kilim if at possible. I love these corner shelfs a lot. Your room is so cozy and cheerful. I have a similar paint color (the bright blue) in my family room as well :-)

    1. Thank you! The blue is our accent wall and I love how it turned out!
