Rafael Neff Metton Abbey 2007
Rafael Neff’s photo series is based off of some the most beautiful libraries around the world.
Benediktinerabtei Metten library in Germany. Metten Abbey, or St. Michael's Abbey is a house of the Benedictine Order situated between the fringes of the Bavarian Forest and the valley of the Danube, in Bavaria in Germany. The abbey was founded in 766. A 1415 manuscript found in the abbey's library helped identify the meaning of the abbreviations for the Vade retro satana (Step back Satan) formula that appears on Saint Benedict Medals.

Reminds me of why Belle was my favorite Disney princess. Because she had that awesome library with a rolling ladder! You need a ladder for this one. And I love that all the cubbies are different sizes.

Gothic and dark. I kind of absolutely HAVE to have this in my house someday. With maybe some heavy velvet curtains and some leather clubchairs and a few dogs in front of the fireplace.
Library... this reminds me of the library in Beauty and the Beast!
This will be another of my staircases and Amber Bevier and I will just sit on the stairs reading for hours.
The Rijksmuseum Research Library in Amsterdam: I will be searching for this when traveling to Amsterdam in the fall.

I want this in my future home. It probably won't happen, but I guess that's why they call them "Dream Homes"
dream house will have a big library like in avatar the last airbender in the episode with the giant black owl whose voice is the guy who plays joe in princess diaries because i forgot his name
I want a library in my house so bad. A place to just go and relax. Warm and cozy like this.
