Spaces: I Heart Books!

If you've been following this blog since it's debut, you are likely aware that my Shangri-la is the perfectly appointed library - today's CDJ.  While I've never found a space quite as marvelous as the one in my mind,  these libraries are pretty fantastic for reality...

This reminds me of a room that would be in my parents house - mostly white with some blue accents and a some taxidermy.  (My mom selecting the white and blue and my dad insisting on the animal head - LOVE it!)

A new feature I would like to add to my library - two stories.

The shape of this room is fantastic, as is the fact that it's right off the foyer, so all guests immediately understand your love of books. From Carrie and Big's apartment in SATC2

Everytime I look at this space I notice something new - this time it's the silhouettes on the shades of the scounces.

Mirrored-backed built-ins.... precisely what fancy I for my private Bibliothèque.
