Friday Fun: Attic Escapes

If I had attics like these, I wouldn’t mind being known as the Madwoman in the Attic! Eight or so years ago I had plans to convert the loft into a study and library space, but fortunately for my wallet and sanity, I have given up such fantastical dreams. Instead, I gawp at other people’s attics.

Not quite sure how many times I would bash my head against those beams, but it does look pretty, right? From

Some spaces are bigger than others – I could probably fit all my stuff into this attic. From

  1. Oh, they’re all such lovely, warm, safe-looking places, Marina Sofia! And what a great idea to convert attic/loft space to such inviting nests. I think I’d choose the one from Bookglow – those chairs are made for curling up (or stretching out) and reading. But they’re all wonderful.

  2. Gorgeous pictures. I love the idea of an attic library. Not really practical here, with the weather, at least not without AC.

  3. Oh, these are glorious! Each one has such charm, and when I look at stacks and shelves of books such as these, I wonder why I constantly try to minimize my stacks? I must have a little Japanese in me, that loves to simplify and declutter. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, thank you for inspiration to indulge!
