“New reading nook! I came across an antique sari, which is over the papasan cover. It's all stuff I already had but I'm changing the whole house around.…” i would love to have a reading nook somewhere in the house.
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.
Rows of matching Billy bookcases from Ikea work well here. Consider that the books and accessories offer the pop while the bookcases provide the background. (contemporary living room by Smith & Vansant Architects PC)
