Wow.  Few things in life are better than a great place to sleep, crisp mountain air, and a view that just makes you salivate.  Put the two together, and it’s an instantaneous sensory explosion.  This week’s space has character, class, and a rustic calm that would tingle any nature lover’s palate.  Waking up to this view would be….heavenly.  

Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week’s great wintry space.

There are many great combos in life; french fries and ketchup, Batman and Robin, coffee and my mouth, and (drum roll, please) books and sunshine.  It’s the perfect pairing, and this room is a comfortably complete addition to that grouping.   It tidily intersects natural lighting with a handsomely useful workspace, and then throws in the mother of all reading nooks for good measure.  Who wouldn’t love to nestle in that monstrous window seat with a good glass of something, and just disappear into a few hundred pages (or into the view, which I’m imagining is stellar)?  And a fireplace, too?  C’mon, it doesn’t get any better.  This, my friends, is most certainly a book lover’s room.

Two words…this view.  This.  View.  For a lover of all things minimal, snowy, and mountainous (I am that person), this is the place.  Place yourself (the daydream begins here) in front of that slender, expansive window, looking out into the immensity of that horizon, and clear away all of the…well, just clear it all away.  Sit back and relax.  Enjoy the view.  And go get some coffee while you’re at it.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sleep in a library?  Apparently, so did the owners of this week’s space.  And what a lovely dream that they’ve manifested; from this photo alone, it’s pretty obvious that they love books.  To such a degree that they’ve lined their bedroom with them…now that’s love.  If only all of that information would cascade down over the shelves each night, like a storm of words, and fill one’s head with all of their wisdom.  This, friends, is a book lover’s room.

I could run through quite a few hours here, lost in thought.  Clean lines, fresh, open air, lush, wooded horizon, and minimal details lead to one clean, relaxed ambiance.  It’s the perfect place to kick back, close your eyes, and find your peace…as well as the ideal place to post up, open your eyes, and appreciate the immense beauty of the world.  Oh, and the snow is awesome, too.

We grab our selected books…we kick back with our drink of choice…and then we ooze into a soft chair and dive eyes first into the beautiful sea of words.  How awesome would it be if this were the room, and these were the chairs?  I was instantly drawn to this room due to its hidden fort sort of vibe; it has a rugged and rustic charm that plays well with the simplicity of its added comforts.  A quaint, sturdy little space seemingly tucked away gently from the rest of the home, plush chairs nestled under a sunlit window, and an army of books standing at attention.  I’ll take it.  This is a book lover’s room.

This week’s addition to the collection is very similar to last week’s wintry selection in one distinct way…the seclusion.  Oh, the lovely peace that this seclusion would provide.  Now if you’ve seen one too many scary movies, I could totally see why you’d be afraid to cozy up to a desolate and slightly vulnerable space like this one.  But if you’re in the mood for an immersive and adventurous injection into nature, this little mobile residence is just right.  A gorgeously tidy little minimal house on wheels to shack up in for life on the go.  Because sometimes the road is calling your name…and you’d better be ready to answer it with your crib in tow.  And this picture is also packed with snow, which is the ultimate cherry on top.
