Book Nook

One thing I really want to include in this house was an old fashioned library with ladders (like the bookshop Audrey Hepburn worked at in Funny Face). I’ve always been obsessed with books… the smell of a new book… the way the smooth, shiny spines look when lined up neatly on a shelf. They have such a cozy, nostalgic feel to them. Our book nook is going to be in the upstairs landing of the house in what our architect likes to call the “pajama lounge”. Here’s some pics I hope to draw some inspiration from when it comes time to build our book nook…
