Literary Comfort

It’s November!  Regardless of the weather November is such a cozy month.  All I want to do is curl up on the sofa with some hot chocolate and something to read.  Alas, Lukus and I do not have a library (although I sometimes contemplate turning the guest room/ office into a library.  Perfect for a lazy Saturday spent reading and napping.  How snug and comfy does that sound?!?!  Check out some of the photos that are shaping my dreams.  At the very least these photos will inspire you to pick up a book!

I love the rich color of the built-ins.  It makes the room feel so luxurious.

This sofa in this room is the quintessential library sofa!  I love the idea of sitting there and reaching behind me to grab a book.

The idea of a dining area with in a library is perfect for an intimate dinner.

A ladder in the library for fetching books feels so classic and much more stylish than your average metal step stool!

Hanging artwork over book cases adds layers and depth to a library.  I love the weight that it adds to the above room!
