Library Love

{Francisco Costa}

When I was a child, I knew I wanted two things: to travel often and to have a house full of books! Luckily, I have been blessed to have a wonderful life that has afforded me both of those things. Aside from reading novels, I also love coffee table books on topics from interior design and fashion to travel and food and everything in between. I have stacks and stacks throughout my home and my bookshelves are packed to the gills. I think we will stay in our current home a while longer, but I can’t help but hope for a proper library in our next home– a place to store and display my ever-growing collection.  I’ve pulled together a collection of stylish libraries including some that are dark and moody, chic and colorful, and a few that are perfectly neutral. They are all beautifully designed, but I am partial to libraries of the dark lacquered variety. They are cozy, chic, and the perfect place for curling up with a fabulous book. Which type is your favorite?
