Inspiration Files: Home Libraries

I've always wanted a library in my home.

Not one of those stuffy, dark places with dusty books and formal chairs.

More like a bright, airy spot with lots of windows, like maybe a dining room.

Or a home office.

Definitely a window seat and cozy places to curl up and read!

Perhaps you don't have a whole room for a library. Maybe one wall of your living room would work better.

Here you could close the curtain to hide your library.

All you need is a comfortable chair...

Some book-inspired art...

Don't forget to leave room for your favorite art work!

And top it off with a library ladder!

Do you have a library in your home?


  1. Beautiful, Ellie! I am blessed to have a small library area in our house and I love it- xo Diana

  2. I love that cwbarchitects photo... The smallish library as foyer to another room. I would've loved to do something like that with my entry.

    I am always envious of library ladders. They look so cool.

  3. I've always wanted a library, too! Love seeing these images of bookshelves actually covered in books. That's how they are in our home. Terrific images! Thanks for sharing.
