The library is my favorite room in the house. I pinned every single library you showed, I could spend entire days in any of these rooms

The second and fourth pictures have to be my favorite...wonderful reading places to escape to and get lost in a book. Happy Friday, stop by when you can :)

You've given me great ideas Donna. I'm trying to incorporate a library & dining room in our flat. You've got my wheels turning as always!

Have a great weekend x

That second picture went straight to my inspiration file... I need to have a giant bookcase built in my livingroom/office and this one is really close to what I have in mind!Thanks!

Hi,

I just love libraries, be they messy or organized.
Books are a good thing.

these all feel so luxurious, yet not in the glitz and glam sort of way. Someday I may have a house big enough to fit a library. For now its a bookshelf :)

Fabulous. May libraries never be completely replaced by electronics.
