Reading nook questions

2 months ago

I was recently given a tall vintage bookcase which fits perfectly in a small, odd corner of my small, rectangular living room. I want to create a cozy little reading corner with a big comfy chair and a reading light but the area is still part of the rest of the room. Is it a good idea to match the reading chair to the rest of the room? (it's decorated in classic, modern vintage, chesterfield linen sofa, tufted velvet accent chair, shades of blue, cream and gray). I found a really cozy looking reading chair with great reviews at anthropologie which is a light blush color. It's more mid century modern. I was thinking I could add a blue throw pillow and blanket to try to blend the colors a bit. Would this look odd and out of place?
