Friday Fun: Timelessly Elegant

Or everything I am not, in other words! But then, how can you compete with some much-loved bookshelves?

Monochrome beauty by Visual Vamp on Tumblr.
Clever partition to allow for a reading and study space – and more shelves, not just on the walls. From Casa Paolo.
Ah, if only we had a loft or attic as spacious as this, right? From metalbuildinghomes.com
A Scandinavian living room, I’m sure – note the lack of curtains, the cosy fireplace, the minimalist furniture and the parquet flooring. From Fashiion-gone-rouge.
But if you prefer more classical alternatives, this seems like a good place to start, from ebookfriendly.com
The Duchess Anna Amalia Library in Weimar – what a woman – a composer, collector and operating a highly respected cultural salon.
But if it’s a modest little paradise, you seek, then this one from The Grey Home should do the trick.

  1. With the bonus of that view, it has to be The Grey Home for me. How much reading I would do versus looking out of the window is the question though!

  2. Oh, my! I could cheerfully get lost in any one of these places, Marina Sofia! All those books, and that lovely use of space! I think my choice is the one from Fashion Gone Rouge, but they are all wonderful. And you are a lot more elegant than you may think…
