Study Nook Inspiration

I've been perusing the internet for study nook inspiration and have some of the following to share.  I've had some saved in my photo folder for ages so hopefully I'll put all the appropriate links where I can...

How stunning is this little nook? LOVE the chair!!! Thanks Shayne for the link - see here!

This is modern, fresh & simple. Cute chair too.

Loving the red accents and window seat from here

Really love this type of desk arrangement & postcard feature wall from Young House Love

And here it is before being decorated

Love how an unused wardrobe has been turned into a study nook here

The next 2 gorgeous study nooks are from VT Interiors

Not entirely my style but I love the concept and layout from here

I've had this pic saved for a while from Centsational Girl.  Perfect for a little tuck away spot in a study nook.

Our study nook opening is going to be about 2m long and then on either side there'll be another 700mm to stash printers, files and all the things that make a desk / study look messy.

The below desk is the Besta Burs from Ikea and very similar to what we'll be using (check out the stunning red colour it comes in too!!)  I like the slim line drawer underneath and that there's plenty of room for 2 people to use at once.
And if you've wondered how to keep all your cords tidy, check out the Signum, also from Ikea for only $15!  You just attach it to the bottom of the desk.
Lastly, we've had an alcove built right next to our study nook to house a wine rack just like this shown in an  Eden Brae display home!

Isnt it GORGEOUS!! Her old study nook was beautiful too - before her basement level got flooded and all their furniture ruined :(

After seeing that post I read her whole blog!

I have scoped out the chair and IKEA here in Sydney has it - yay!!

Glad you liked it!

I had lots of those same images saved in my 'study nook' folder.

I've just finished decorating mine and posted the 'reveal' yesterday.

Lovely to have found your blog (via ido) - I'm your newest follower!
