kamoorephoto Congrats on the house!! 👍🏼 2mo
TheBookAddict Congrats, wishing you the best! We lived that life too. We didn‘t have furniture, but we had each other and our books. 🙂💕 2mo

@megzlynn My sister and I just set up my library last week! I would have just stacked books, but she added plants and decorations that really made the wall look great. There's nothing like having a talented decorator in the family.

And congrats on your library! So exciting 😄

wanderinglynn That looks lovely! 👍🏻❤️ 6mo
megzlynn It‘s gorgeous! 😍 6mo
Tanisha_A Lovely! 😍 6mo

Hello all!! I‘m about to move and this space is going to be my library. I‘m so excited and daunted by the idea of making this space my own, but if anyone understands the excitement it‘s you all!

Texreader Look at those bare walls begging for bookshelves! ❤️❤️❤️ 9mo
Mitch That‘s amazing... have fun designing! 9mo

GingerAntics And science finally confirms what we‘ve already known for ages!!! 11mo
rwmg What a strange concept: "enough books". 11mo
Judybskt Yes!!! 11mo
laurenbescoby There are books in every room of our house except the family bathroom! (Too much splashing at bath time to take the risk 😂) 11mo
JillR Our house is bursting with books too. When we get the kids new books we often just leave them somewhere for them to discover by themselves. My husband, who is a teacher, is convinced that if children are surrounded by enough books, and are left to discover them, they will read :) 11mo

RachelO This one, on the other hand... Would be quite comfortable on that sofa for the afternoon. I don't usually go for 'neutrals' but it's lovely and calm. 1y
blithebuoyant My niece would get out of bed, pull every one of those books down and scream “READ ME BOOK” at 4 am 😂 1y
tournevis The bar takes space away from the books. 1y
