For the past couple weeks, I’ve been trying to allot more time for doing activities that make me happy and relaxed. While I’ve never been a reading lover (well, at least compared to my dad who averages two books a week), I still appreciate a good book and I love the feeling of sitting down to read and letting my mind wander. To get myself even more comfortable, I’ve taken to design sites like Domaine Home, Kelly Wearstler, and Elle Decor to get some inspiration for designing a new ottoman. I think it will not only add an interesting twist to my relatively monochrome room (especially when in a chevron pattern), but will also enhance my relaxation. What more is there to ask for?
