the home library

I was talking to a friend yesterday who described her dream library as the one in Beauty and the Beast. She started me thinking of the home library. My dream library has floor to ceiling built-in bookcases with a ladder.

My Dad is an all time reader. He has more books than shelves. When I saw this home library I thought of my Dad (I even sent him the link). I think he should adapt one of his home offices (I think between he and my Mom they are up to 4 home offices now) into more of a library using this type of shelving.

This library warms my soul.. I love the red accents everywhere.

A more traditional home library. This how I image Elizabeth Bennett's library, inviting.

The color coordination in this one is amazing. I tried to do this with some of my books but it drove me crazy to have them sorted by color than by subject or author.

A truly luxurious library= dual levels

What does your dream library look like?

  1. i'm so glad to know I'm not the only one who dreams about the library in beauty and the beast! and the moving ladder in the beginning!!

  2. I love this collection of ideas ... and yes, the library is just one of the top reasons why Beauty and the Beast has long been a favorite of mine. :) If you don't mind, I'm pinning this blog entry - it's way better than all the other library ideas I've seen so far!
