Perfect Prints for a Petites Book Nook

In thinking about updating my girls book nook, I have been contemplating what type of art to put onto the walls.  I am so excited about some of the amazing things I have found.

Etsy is such a perfect place to find incredibly lovely prints at reasonable prices.  What I love most is that you can find amazing art from illustrators of some of our favorite books.

The Fox and the Tea Cup has amazing prints that depict strong-willed girls and adorable animals reading.  I love her designs and have written about her lovely book plates before.

Book Nook Obsessed

For years I would read magazines and clip out all of the pictures of the things I loved and put them in a binder.  Then Pinterest came along and revolutionized my binder of clippings.  Even if it did make having a child’s birthday party turn into an extreme sport.  Pinterest became a place where you might just realize you could put together cool outfits from your own closet, inspire amazing travel plans and get ideas for decorating rooms in such remarkable ways.

My daughter sleeps on a bunk bed and there is an open space underneath it, which we made into a book nook.  When we did this, I spent a ton of time on Pinterest looking at some of the incredibly amazing children’s book nooks.   What we ended up with is a really cozy and comfortable space, but I would love to do a little more with this cute space.

Since it’s no secret that I love books, you won’t be surprised by my deep love of book nooks, I am thinking about changing some things around in the petites and rounded up some awesome nook inspiration.
