Home Libraries

11 May

Ever since seeing Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at the age of 7, I’ve known that I’ve wanted a library in my house. I mean, have you SEEN the library the Beast presents to Belle?! Books! Staircases! Amazing.

Seeing as how I’ll probably never be a proud castle owner, I’ll most likely never has a library as opulent as that in my house, but I’ve found a few home libraries around the internet that may fit my lifestyle a little bit better.

This is less a library and more perfectly organized bookshelves. Looks great, but I know my books would be completely mixed up by the end of the week.

This, again, is not a full library, but it does have great California pride going on!

This is a perfect cozy reading nook. I love the Virginia Woolf portrait looking on!

Floor to ceiling bookshelves plus a giant window? Yep.

And this is where things get real crazy. A pyramid wall of books! Love it!

Double decker library! Fancy schmancy!

Ah yes. This is my writer’s retreat/library in Costa Rica. NBD.

And to bring us back to earth, here’s a simple window seat library. This is my favorite. I’ve always wanted a window seat that looks out into the forest. Add in books, and I’m sold.

    I think that Disney ruined us giving us that bookshelf porn….

    I love these! I stopped and gaped at a neighbor’s window last night when I was walking my dog because I had never noticed their gorgeous floor to ceiling bookshelves. It was intense bookcase-envy.

    Mmmmmm this really is bookshelf porn! I love all these ideas – and desperately want more space {and more books!}!!
