I spent most of this week searching for some documents and folders, and kept telling myself how much more organised I would be, how I would have everything easily to hand… if I had something resembling these home libraries.
A perfect winter landscape, a windowseat, and you can hide unsightly documents and folders in those cupboards too. From angi.com
Even the hallway can become an exciting library in this house in Leeds, with a small desk to check out any reference books. From HousecrazySarah.life
Clever example of optimal use of even the narrower spaces in the house, from Homes and Gardens.
Custom shelving for oddly-shaped rooms. Might work for that turret room that I’ve always craved. From Boston Magazine.
If you have even more books and a grand piano, plus a few coats of arms to display, then this room might be more suitable. From Fine and Country.
You can stay in this house in the US courtesy of AirBnb – it houses not only a library but also an extensive record collection. From Thrillist.com
But I’ve saved the best AirBnb for last – this cabin in the woods has everything I could ever want – books, a desk, a bed, and a view, plus the warmth of wood. From Thrillist.com

Books do furnish a room. Not an Anthony Powell fan but he got that right!
They certainly do in my world! A few paintings and books, a comfy sofa and we’re all set!
Thanks Marina. I’m going for the last but one
It’s all yours… at least until the next AirBnb guest arrives…
Oh, such lovely rooms, Marina Sofia! I love them all! I’m especially drawn to the turret room, because among other things, I have a very soft spot for pianos. Music and books in the same spot – what’s not to love? But really, they’re all beautiful.
Such a Friday treat – thank you 🙂
I love number 2 with it’s little desk hidden away, when I was a child I used to love playing libraries and that would have been a perfect spot!
Oh gosh, I want any of those – I would love one day to get my books properly organised so that I could find every one of them!!!
I don’t have a grand piano or coats of arms but I’d love to have a library large enough as number 5 and actually have all my books visible to me, not hidden in double and triple rows 🙂
They are all great but I think the first two win.
I agree. The last one is the best!
