I can downsize quite easily if I live all by myself – but I will need a special room just for my books, somewhere to read, write, and just admire all the imacculately arranged shelves. The ideal would be the Whatley family’s specially-commissioned library in Texas (first picture below), but some of the others might also do…

I could quite happily live in one of these rooms, just include a kettle and a fridge !
I am sure your servants can bring hot and cold drinks at any minute of the day or night!
That would be lovely….
I like the House Beautiful one: not TOO many books, and a variety of ways to lay back and enjoy. I’d guess there’s a TV on the side from which the picture was taken.
Probably a full screen for projections!
These are all such lovely places to curl up with a book and a beverage! It’s hard to decide among them, really because they’re all so appealing. But if I had to choose, I’d go with the doorknob one. Those chairs and sofas look wonderful for relaxed reading.
Yes, comfortable seating is a must. After all, it’s not just the books that need to have the luxury of space.
I would happily take *any* of those today, Marina, but the nook looks especially cosy…
I could well imagine spending a rainy weekend there, doing nothing but reading.
I like the cosy feel of the DecoratedLife one but there are not nearly enough shelves for my books.
I assume there are more shelves behind the doorframe…
That’s possible – would be essential for me
The one in the AirB&B looks fab. Where is it?
Not entirely sure I can rely on the website, but they claim it is in Palo Alto.
For some reason I love the idea of furniture made out of bookshelves, so I adore the reading nook. Every surface devoted to reading.
Oooh, lovely! The boudoir one quite appeals for the sofas but not nearly enough shelf space – I’d just have to put a big sofa in the Texan one 🙂
I would rent that Airbnb just for the reading nook!
