Peaceful. That word sums this space up succinctly. Soft natural sunlight flooding over the room by way of a massive floor to ceiling window, a sturdy workspace, a comfy chair pulled close to it for some close proximity relaxation, and a beautiful wall of books. Simple perfection; this is without a doubt a book lover's room. Let the daydreams commence.
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.
Size, sunlight, and class…this space has it all. A monumental double height room, flooded with ample natural light and stacked to the rafters with books (and a neat little workspace tucked away on the upper level), this is the ultimate getaway from the noise and stressors of the world. The perfect place to relax, release, and rebound. Let the daydreams commence.
If you’ve read a Library Lusting post before, and also lust after the quiet solace and beauty that book filled spaces provide, then you’ll know that I am an appreciator of A., books, and B., sunshine. They just work. This week’s space provides ample amounts of both, and throws in a sizable work space to boot. One could not only get their read on, but also their write. This, friends, is a book lover’s room. Enjoy!
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.
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.
