Library Lusting.

What elements constitute a legendary home library?  A few books?  A handful of bookshelves? Some unique architectural elements that most folks can only dream of?  Some home setups have all of the above, and then some.  This week’s pick is that sort; a truly immense space, stacked to the rafters full of books, a space reminiscent of a true library rather than one tucked away in a home.  One would definitely have to up one’s book acquisition game in order to fill the gang of space on those shelves!  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.

There's something very interesting here;
stark, structural simplicity blended tidily with a beautiful wash of snow swept countryside. A very striking combination when done right. One must admit that there is a raw, organic comfort in spaces like these; with uncomplicated, almost spartan furnishings, the emphasis is placed on the surroundings rather than the interior. As a result, both elements are enhanced considerably. And the little stout stove? Perfection. 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.
