A winter’s day refuge: the home library


As the days get colder and gloomier, we naturally spend more time inside. Sometimes a rainy or snowy day is just the excuse you need to cozy up and spend the day with a new or well-loved book.

That’s one comfy looking loveseat. I’m sure I could read there all afternoon.

If I ever have the space, creating a little reading nook like this will be a top priority!

Check out how they’ve even extended the bookcase on the sides. Definitely making the best use of space here.

I’ve been reading a lot lately that if you have “ugly” books, to cover them in plain white paper to create a nicer looking shelf. I don’t know how I feel about this. Something about it to me seems too forced, but I’ve never seen it in person. Has anyone tried this?

Squeeze the most out of an otherwise unusable wall space by running low shelf units along the bottom.

Do you have a dedicated home library, are your books spread out throughout the house, or have you carved out a space for books in another room?
