Friday Fun: Rearranging Bookshelves

At some point I need to have a big clear out of books, clothes and knick-knacks, but for the time being, let me still dream of endless shelf space! Some of the home libraries below have lots of room to play with, but others are very clever at making the best use of quite narrow spaces.

  1. There’s something increasingly comforting about seeing these Friday photos. Wishing you a good and if at all possible, restful, weekend.

  2. I wish I had as much space as a barn does to store books, Marina Sofia! Those are some really clever ways to make the most of space. I rather like the look of the second ‘photo, from Zillow – it feels airy, even though there’s not a lot of space.
