Book Worm

Author and playwright Alan Bennett was once quoted as saying “A bookshelf is as particular to its owner as are his or her clothes; a personality is stamped on a library just as a shoe is shaped by the foot.” I would most certainly concur.

  12. WOW. I love these libraries/family-rooms.

    There’s nothing I like more than seeing large floor-to-ceiling bookshelves filled with books. I love the ones with white shelves and white walls. Looks very bright.

    I am so happy for this post! For fall for my home I’m concentrating on revamping our bookshelves into not just a place for books, but a decorative and comfortable space as well. This has given me so many ideas! Yay!

    Images of home libraries always remind me of the scene in Beauty and the Beast, when the Beast gives Belle his library. I hope to have my own room full of books someday soon. What a magical place to lose myself.

    Love the look of a library room! I especially love incorporating books in shelfs with pictures in frames and home accessories. I’ve decorated my house in that similar fashion. Beautiful pictures.
