Grown-Up Forts!

I might be silly, but I've been thinking about all the forts I made when I was younger, using building blocks anywhere from couch cushions to sheets - I even remember using blankets to build my own personal fort when my family would go on road trips, tucking it under the headrest of the seat in front of me and my own!  Because of all these memories, I've been very tempted to create a "grown-up" fort.  Or, maybe something like the one from The Holiday, pictured above!  Either way, I've really been wanting to hang out in a homemade fort!

It would be such a nice place to curl up with blankets and pillows, and take a nap or read a book - just about anything!  Yes, I think I've just decided that I'm going to make my own "grown-up" fort.  Now, what am I going to put in my tent?  Maybe some soft icicle lights, big, fluffy pillows, blankets, and maybe even some stuffed animals!  I can definitely see Cricket and I curling up in here after my night shifts and taking nice, long naps!  What would you put in a grown-up tent like this?
