This is my daydream...
What would you do to have a library like this in your home? What would you do to have a home big enough to fit a library like this?!
I love how these 2-storey shelves draw the eye all the way up to the ceiling.
An attic loft is a great space to have a library - Attics have an aura of mystery and adventure just like within pages of these books.
Someday I will need a ladder to reach the very top shelves of my library as well ;)
On second thought, forget the ladder! I want a circular staircase!
This is definitely my favourite! So cozy and eclectic! I'm sure it has a big bay window somewhere and a fireplace too ;)
Such a beautiful reading nook!
I really like how they opened up this closet space to make room for shelves.
A funky idea for the DIYer!
This is a staircase made of bookshelves! How cool is this?!
I like these diagonal shelves. They would be great in a modern room or mixed in with traditional shelves for a more eclectic look.
This is creative! Would be great in a school library or in a household with children.
Ahh... to dream... Someday it will be mine! LOL
And apparently I'm not the only one who would love a home library. According to the Telegraph there are more people who want libraries in their home than cinemas, gyms, or music studios!
For all of you Book, Library, and Sex and the City fans out there I just had to end this post with the famous scene between Carrie and Big from the SATC movie:
Carrie slides over and nestles in, leaning up against him. She opens her book.
He looks down at it.
BIG: Are you the last person in New York still taking out library books?
CARRIE: I love the smell.
She smells the book, then holds it up to him. He smells.
BIG: That's an old one!
