"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles." --Audrey Hepburn

Bookcases



For as long as I can remember, I have always loved curling up with a good book in a comfy armchair and spending hours enraptured by a moving plot and engaging characters. Of course, as a girl who is also obsessed with anything fashion and design related, this "hobby" logically led to an admiration for beautiful places devoted to reading. Case in point, I was amazed by the gorgeous library in the castle in Beauty and the Beast! Fast forward to today, and I think these two spaces represent a modern take on the traditional, dark wood library (complete with a ladder to reach the top shelves, of course).

I hadn't watched that movie:(, but anyway, those two spaces are really lovely, I'd mix the first library with the second pic sofa.

Beautiful book cases! I wish I had enough book cases for all of my books. So many of them are relagated to boxes. Sad!

that bookcase is wonderful, hopefully my house will have that sort of installation for my books too...:)

Tessa a dit…

awesome... a must-have for my future house is a wall covered with books (and some good comfy nooks to snuggle up & read in).
