Reading Corner

In one corner of this cool playroom, a Land of Nod chair, Pier One pouf, and a hide rug found at Costco invite kids to curl up with a book. Ikea Expedit bookshelves hold standard paperback and hardcover books up high where they can’t be torn, while wall-mounted book racks keep sturdy board books at kid level.

Media Display Wall

Interior decorator Jan Eleni Lemonedes converted a playroom wall into a display area for books, photos, toys, and more. By adding narrow shelves to the length of the wall, she created the perfect space for lil one’s to review and grab books that interest them. The big floor pillows situated right under the shelves transform the corner into a snugly reading nook too.

Oeuf Mini Library

In the kid-friendly home owned by the founders of Oeuf, you’ll find at least one piece of Oeuffurniture in every room. One of our favorites, however, is the popular Mini Library ($678), which manages to look chic while being a workhorse, holding a ton of books, toys, and knickknacks.

Nursery Works Tree Bookcase

A bookshelf does not need to be a case-like structure. Take, for instance, Nursery Works’ Tree Bookcase ($850). Designed to inspire lil ones to read, the bookshelf is a cross between wall art and storage facility. Fill it with your tot’s favorite, or other tree-inspired works like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and The Giving Tree.
