Libraries

One of the rooms in my “dream house” is a library. I would love to have a room full of books and a couple of cosy armchairs by the window.

I don’t think I’d ever leave that window seat.
Walls of book, walls of art, comfy sofa – it doesn’t get any better than this

I usually like bright, airy rooms like the ones above, but with libraries I’m conflicted. I love big picture windows to read by but I also think a little bit of atmospheric gloominess just the thing for a library. Also, it can’t be too perfect or formal – I need to feel that I can sprawl comfortably and read.

I think that pile of books could crush a small child – but what a way to go…
love the organised chaos
Way too formal for me but I can’t go past a secret door!

Unfortunately there’s no room for a library in our house. We are however getting bookshelves installed in the dining room. The final measurements have been taken and they should hopefully be installed in the next couple of weeks.

Bookshelves to be installed on both sides and over passageway

We’ll finally be able to get our books out of the cupboard!
