Is there anything better than a room filled with books? I’m not sure that there is, I love reading and so whenever I see a home filled with books it makes my heart sing. Now, in a ideal world I would have a proper home library including floor to ceiling bookshelves, a ladder and maybe even a little tower room where you can put a comfy chair to read all those books.
But of course unless you live in a historic manor house this isn;’t very realistic for most of us. But that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate books in your home, whether you have some extra space you can turn into a home library or if you line the walls of the rooms that you have with books.
In this post you’ll see some wonderful book-filled spaces, big or small, modern or old-fashioned you’ll find the most beautiful home libraries here.
