Library Lusting.

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.




Library Lusting.

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.

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.

Doing great work often requires having a great space.  The right space.  Not every time, sure…but with this space, great work most certainly would be done.  Ample sunlight flooding the room, a linear, minimal aspect that reduces clutter and adds a clear, clean vibe, a monstrous workspace that is just begging to be utilized, and a healthy row of books to top it all off famously.  Calm and good mojo would wash over me in this space for sure.  This is definitely a book lover’s room.

So I really like this room.  My love for it was instantaneous.  The quiet intimacy of this room, even without the candles (an impressive touch, I might add), is superb.  The high ceilings and cushy furniture (and table…good for the coffee and the whiskey) add just a touch of the cozy and a fine dose of comfort to really pull the small space together.  And the doors are a great, clever touch to keep the world (and noise) at bay when need be.  This, my friends, is a book lover’s room.

I look at this room, and I feel a sense of quiet.  A sense of peace.  There’s a stillness here that permeates the room.  The inlaid ceiling (an exquisite touch), soft natural light, and roaring fire add a comforting, mellow touch that would most certainly ripen any creative mind.  Add a slew of anonymous books, and boom….this room earns the week’s Library Lusting top billing.  This is indeed a book lover’s room.

Something about this room stuck with me.  Though highly ornate, some comforting, inviting undertones reign supreme. High, breezy ceilings and a flood of natural light help add to the fresh ambiance, and the plush couch speaks relaxation.  Tuck a neat little desk in the back?  Perfect for writing.  And the gang of books would keep a reader occupied for eons.  Oh yes, this is most definitely a book lover’s room.
