I would be in book heaven. One day I'll have not only a home big enough for a room like this, but also enough books to fill the shelves. Well, a girl can dream, can't she? Private library designed by architecture firm Ilai, photography by Lukas Wassmann.
Thierry W. Despont said of the library he created in a Georgian Revival house, also of his making, in Toronto, Canada. The library’s baronial design, a riff on the domed hall of Palladio’s Villa Capra.
This single room of the library was as large as our whole house in the city had been, and I could see more book-filled rooms through open doors in all directions, including a balcony overhead, all built from floor to high ceiling with bookshelves.
