Sometimes, many different flavors can combine to create one larger, greater concoction. Such is the case with this week’s space. This room is somewhat of a gumbo; many varied elements and premises all tossed carefully and creatively into one large stew pot. We’ve got some comfort elements (plush chairs and a sofa) for maxing and relaxing, a studious little nook (a great little desk and window pairing) for taking care of business, a fireplace for a little heat and crackle, and a mass of books so large that this room could double as the east wing of your local library. It has it all, and it just works. This is without a doubt a book lover’s room. Let the daydreams commence.
Is anyone else ready for winter (well, those of us in the States)? Photos like this week’s space just open up the inner wintry spirit. One look at this bright, airy space is enough to get the itch for snow (sitting inside, chilling…not driving in it). And despite the glorious cold stuff packing gently outside of the room in this photo, the space retains a spectacularly cozy warmth due to the rich, warm wooden hues. This is a coffee sipping, winter loving space indeed. Let the daydreams commence.
Light your fire, grab your coffee (or wine), snag your book…and cozy up to the warmth of this week’s great wintry space.
Great libraries generally ignite an interest in reading. As a side effect, they should also compel one to relax and unwind. A great theme of home libraries is just that; a marriage of those two concepts, visually appealing, and structurally useful. This week's selection has a sublime mix of simplicity and sophistication with its industrial elements and expansive windows. Its crafty little details just scream comfort, and the ladder? C'mon. That's just awesome. This is most certainly a book lover's room. Let the daydreams commence.
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.
