Whether by a window, in a corner of a room, or tucked away under the stairs, these nooks are the perfect refuge to slow down and escape the hustle and bustle of long workdays, so it’s common for us to dream of this space for enjoying a good breakfast, working peacefully, or reading a comforting book.
