Book nooks; here are three cozy places to get away from it all. They also work as extra sleeping space.

Part of the pleasure of curling up with a good book is the sense of leaving the world behind. These inviting reading nooks, set apart from mainstream activities, provide enclosure without confinement. The bay at left and above enlarged a former bedroom now used as an office. At top right, a semiprivate alcove off a small living room in a new house supports a deck above. The Scandinavian-inspired niche at right claimed a small area to one side of an existing fireplace. All three reading nooks double as beds when friends come to stay. Both the cantilevered bay and niche offer usable storage beneath their platforms.
