Napping nooks

Posted on Fri, 28 Aug 2009 by KiM

This post was requested by Jessica, who has taken to hoarding sleepy, cozy nap nook pics. Many seem to be located in front of windows which is the perfect place to read a shelter mag then have a little nappy nap and dream of redecorating. Perfect plans for a Friday I’d say. 🙂

What a perfect post for today! Honestly, I've been searching for daybeds for a project I've been working on and these are amazing! Also, I took a nap today…first one in a LONG time:-) Thanks!!

I spent some of this afternoon napping after a hard day shopping. Wish I had a fabulous spot like these.

I love your blog. I read it every day for inspiration.
Now to pick your brains…do you know what type of wallpaper Frank Roop is using? I love the effect and think I have also seen it in the lobby of the g hotel in Galway, Ireland. (
Thank you.

Where should I look to find some of these pads? Are they more like daybed mattresses or is there a name for them?

Most of them are likely custom made – from foam and batting. But Urban Outfitters used to sell them as "floor cushions".

And sorry but I don't know where to find that wallpaper in the Frank Roop photo.

thanks for posting these! I had a great window seat in my childhood room but didn't really use it (my stuffed animals did, i guess). wishing i had one now!

Oh my … oh my.. oh my… I just love day beds… I'm super impressed.. one is better than the other!!

Love the use of pallets in one of the above pics!
