Friday Fun: Beautiful Home Libraries

Almost as much fun as cat pictures, this is my reward for surviving the second week of holidays!

  1. Oh, these are all so lovely, Marina Sofia! I’m moving in. I think if forced, I’d choose the last one, but they’re all wonderful.

  2. All of these are beautiful. It would be hard to choose, but I’d be happy with any of them.

  3. Wow, wish I had room for a library :D

    • Yes, not many homes have that luxury nowadays. In our house in England the guestroom/study was also a library. But I think, as the children get older, that will no longer be possible.

  4. I particularly like #4. Aside from anything else, it probably has just about enough shelving . . .

  5. These photos made me laugh. I should put a picture of my wall to wall, floor to ceiling books world on my blog. Nice pics…Do you think these people ever read these books!

    • I hope they do – but yes, I see what you mean: they look almost too perfectly arranged. And please do post a picture of your bookshelves on your blog!

  6. Love the retro look of the second one. When can I move in?

  7. No. 3 for me please…if one is going OTT, one may as well go there in style… ;)

    • Yes, there is something about that gentlemen’s club style that I really like as well – even if I don’t smoke cigars! Maybe I can just imagine T. S. Eliot conversing with Virginia Woolf there.

  8. so beautiful to be surrounded by so many books…sigh… i could spend hours in a library.. and having such a big one even in my house… paradise…

  9. My god, I’d never leave the house. Those people obviously employ good cleaners, though. I fear my library would need a good dusting.

    • I have two words for you: glass doors. Really cuts down on the dust issues. Sadly, don’t have them on my bookcases over here (we are currently renting abroad, while our beautiful house with the endless bookshelves is being rented out to someone else – sniff!)

  10. I like the pictures with the big windows. I like rooms that have light in them.

    • I love light-filled, airy rooms too… although I don’t mind darkness so much in a library – it just feels cosy, and you can get good reading lamps. (And my eyesight is ruined anyway.)

  11. Oh wow-what a book lover’s dream! My favorites are the first and the second-to-last. But I’d take any of them!

  12. I would die for that first room.
