Reading room is a little different from a traditional office. This room is for someone who is serious about getting things done, without the distractions that a home office entails — phones, faxes and anything else that can interrupt your focus. If you’re a novelist or an editor, or even just a voracious reader, then you will benefit from creating a place in your home of complete serenity and isolation. Take a simple built-in bookcase; add glamorous gothic accessories and a luxe velvet chair and you have yourself a rather indulgent reading corner. Simple window film offers a little privacy while still allowing the light in. When the stresses of daily life begin to plague your every thought, one of the best antidotes is a good book and a few hours without interruptions. Regardless of your preferred genre, a great book can transport your thousands of miles away or hundreds of years into the past – into another time or place in while the complications of your life cease to exist.
