Oh so many great ideas. I can not wait to get started on my sons room. I especially love the one with the yellow curtains.

I LOVE these ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!

I just discovered your blog and I love it. I made a little play tent/reading nook for my kids and they love it. I created a pattern that even the most novice sewer can handle. It can be found on my blog, http://namesakedesign.blogspot.com/2010/09/sew-easy-play-tent.html.

I love so many of those spaces. I pinned some, so I can remember where to look. Thanks for sharing.

this just goes to show that all you need to do is something, anything. because there are so many ways to create your own space, all wonderfully unique.

I love these ideas. How cute and funny is it that all kids seem to love to squish themselves into tight corners when they are reading. Will definitely have to create one of these spaces in our home.

I dont know about you fellows but for me the layout of a blog is quite crucial, practically as a lot because the article itself. Furthermore I am a actual mug for online video clips.!!!. or, as a matter of truth, ANY media subject material in any way.

I love the green chair and foot rest pillow. Where is that one from?

Lovely post!
Do you have any idea where I could find something similar to the lime green chair/ottoman, 5th from the bottom? Thank you so much!
