I think we can all relate to our favorite nook being that perfectly molded spot on the couch but this favorite nook from the blogger behind My Friend Staci is especially fun because its personality packed.
What she had to say: "My "nook" is more like the corner of my couch. In a cookie-cutter, 800-square foot apartment, there are not a lot of architectural details (read: NONE) that lend themselves to the creation of a real nook. I'm trying to keep an open layout so the place feels as spacious as possible.
Even so, I find myself in one particular place more often than not. The corner of my couch (a 1960's original passed down from my grandmother in Illinois) is where I spend a ton of my time. I use a desktop Mac for photo editing, but until I get a more comfortable desk chair, this is the destination for the bulk of my writing and working on my laptop. The vintage coffee table is where I put my feet up (I am not ashamed to admit) and the vintage navajo rug is one my parents received as a wedding gift! I love being surrounded by these items. I use my husband's acoustic drum for a side table and home for my bottomless cup of coffee; I have a John Derian milk crate (from Target) to corral some reading materials and headphones (my neighbor's TV is directly on the other side of the wall, and they love playing Call of Duty!). This vantage point also gives me a nice panorama of the whole apartment, including my gallery wall which makes me smile.While it might not be Pinterest's version of a favorite nook--it's not a windowseat or tucked into an eave--this is my "happy place!"
