Taking inspiration from this stunning fireplace (source unknown), today's The Edit focuses on the reading corner, or quiet retreat in your home. If this happens to be near a fireplace, then lucky you!

I believe all that is needed to create a calming, quiet spot is a comfy armchair, side table to set your coffee or wine upon, a great book, adequate lighting - whether that be a floor or table lamp - and a warm rug underfoot. A deliciously scented candle will also help. Diptique candles are divine, powerful and a real treat!
