Creating the Perfect Outdoor Reading Area
a wrought iron gazebo, that would be the ideal starting point to begin creating the ideal personal reading retreat.
Plants can be used to create a living privacy screen around the gazebo. Outdoor sheers are another option for making the interior of the gazebo more private. A chaise chair would be a wonderful piece of furniture to place inside of the gazebo. Hanging a rattan egg chair or a papasan chair inside of the gazebo would provide an ultra-comfortable place to enjoy a nap or a good book on a summer afternoon.
When there's not enough space for a gazebo, wrought iron panels are a nice alternative. These panels can be used to designate a space on the lawn or in the garden that can be claimed as a reading area. They can also be used on a deck or patio as a way to create a reading nook. Once again, plants or some type of outdoor fabric draped over the panel can make the reading area more secluded. A chair, loveseat or bench with comfortable cushions, an ottoman, a small table and a good book are all that's needed to turn the space on one side of the panel into a private reading retreat.
A wrought iron arch that has seating incorporated into its design is an ideal addition to any landscape or garden. It provides the perfect place to get lost in a good book while being serenaded with the sounds of nature and entertained by birds and other wildlife. If this arch can be placed deep inside of a garden, and accessed by a winding pathway, that would be the ultimate outdoor reading area.
