Almost as much fun as cat pictures, this is my reward for surviving the second week of holidays!
Tel Aviv home, Decoist
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.
Maybe we can create one of those libraries in the chateau we were moving into last week…
I’ll start calling interior designers right away to get some quotes.
All of these are beautiful. It would be hard to choose, but I’d be happy with any of them.
Yeah, if they dragged me kicking and screaming into any one of those, I think I might be able to learn to live with it… ;-)
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.
I particularly like #4. Aside from anything else, it probably has just about enough shelving . . .
Yes, same problem here – and I don’t even have all of my books with me.
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!
Love the retro look of the second one. When can I move in?
I’ll get my people to speak to your people… :-)
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.
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…
My fear is that I would never emerge from such a library… to do anything else around the house.
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!)
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.)
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!
You and me have similar tastes, my dear… but yes, I could ‘live’ with any of them if I had to.
I would die for that first room.
