Reading Nooks By Maison Inc.

I stumbled across the work of Oregon design firm Maison Inc. by accident, but thoroughly enjoyed photos of their work. Owner/principal Joelle Nesen says on the company’s site that her design philosophy is “traditional classic with a modern mix.” Maison Inc. also includes designers Heather Raab, Lucy Roland, Allie McGory, Ashley Wade and Hanna Jones, each with their own style preferences. As someone with a love for reading, I couldn’t help but admire these nooks they’ve designed:

I love the casual look of the illustrations leaning against the wall. Not sure if I’d focus on reading with a view like that!

Here’s a more traditional look with a symmetrical fireplace design. I love me a wingback chair.

An orange chaise and a swing-arm floor lamp create a cosy corner in this principal bedroom.

A pair of styled étagères flank this burnt orange chaise longue.

I personally prefer the first interior the most, with the beautiful garden view and chaise-for-two. Which of these four do you like the most?
