This week’s space conjures up a tropical vibe, and I’d say that it’s more than just the addition of the potted plant that contributes to that ambiance. It could be just me, but I’m reminded of a warm, sunlit terrace on a summer afternoon…surrounded by an ocean of books. It’s a great space, with a few clever parallels; the heavy, rustic elements play very well alongside the fragility of the books, and the sunlight adds a splash of color that gives life to the dense, cold stone. It’s a nice, tidy, quiet space to sit alone and collect the thoughts. This is indeed a book lover’s room…let the daydreams commence.
Beautiful and inviting. And,..no snow!! Lol
Just wait until next week’s SnowPorn post…I’ll fix that for ya!
Industrial spaces can be “cold”. One way to “warm them up” is to add books. Excellent juxtaposition as you say.
Often, they can…all of the concrete and linear elements do sort of sterilize that warmth. You’re right. A good solution to add some warmth and life? Books. They will improve any space! Thanks always for your feedback. I love your comments!
One can have too many books in a certain space, I suppose, but the larger the space the larger the critical number … 🙂
Too many books is a great problem to have, but yes, too many in the same place can mean instant clutter. Large personal spaces…plentiful books…the stuff of dreams…
