Library Heaven isn’t always the library in “Beauty and the Beast.” Sometimes there are book spaces that simply take your breath away, or spaces that invite you to curl up and get comfy. Naturally, they must include books for our purposes here.

Let’s have a look at some of the ones I’m currently drooling over, shall we?

Step Into These Book Spaces…

Book Spaces: This one's dark and moody…

Dark and beautiful. It’s got a wrap-around-and-drag-you-in vibe, don’t you think? (I have no source for this one!)

I love how cool and refreshing this room from Lindsay Chambers feels. The natural wood table and the bright pillows warm up an otherwise cool palette. The only thing wrong with it is the bookshelf. It needs a lot more books.

And how about this cozy library by Katie Lydon Interiors for author Gretchen Rubin? The moody darkness of shelves and furniture are delightfully vitalized by splashes of color. And I’ll bet that grapefruit smells so yummy…!

Book Spaces: Wowza! by Coco Kelly

Designed by Coco Kelly (?)

And talking about color! Wowza! There is nothing boring about red bookshelves in your book spaces! Would you dare to paint your shelves red? I’ve got to tell you, I seriously want to, just because. I believe the design is by Coco Kelly; you can find the photo on her Pinterest board.

Book Spaces: Wild Side elements…

Library Heaven isn’t always the library in “Beauty and the Beast.” Sometimes there are book spaces that simply take your breath away, or spaces that invite you to curl up and get comfy… www.robinlythgoe.comAnd as long as we’re walking on the wild side, how about a zebra skin rug to spice up your book space? And what a fun little bump-out for the bookshelves!
