A reading room should be simple in layout and include the necessities of an environment conducive to peace and relaxation. Remember to include the basics of an Outdoor Living Space and to place comfortable sitting or lying furniture in the area. Picture what makes you feel calm and relaxed and perhaps incorporate a fire pit or a small fountain to add to the overall mood of the environment. A reading room is really all about the feeling, so if possible, consult a feng shui expert to create your space, because a feng shui expert will help with the proper placement and flow of chi in the area, and perhaps even help to create prosperity and abundance in other aspects of your life as well!
This is a picture of the MacDonald residence reading room. A space we created to be a calm and serene get away in their own back yard. They included a small fire pit in their reading room to make the room usable for more of the year.
