Why old books smell, awesome!!
old #book smell. #quote
This could be fun for a bookish character to say
Why old books smell good. Books worth breathing in.
Old book smell. Did you know? “Lingnin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is how Divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla absolute, subliminally stoking a hunger for knowledge in all of us.” —Perfume: The Guide.

Library leading to a secret room. My dream house definitely includes secret passage ways

Friday, I'm in Love | A Compilation of Some of the World's Best Hidden Passages Is there anything quite like the thrill of a secret corner, hidden away from the world, with it's entrance in plain sight, but inconspicuous to the unknowing passerby? I'd be elated if I ever had the chance to visit such a nook, or have one in my own home one day.. A reading closet sounds just about right! The closest I've ever come to any such thing is visiting Tate, the 1920's gentlemen's secret bar in G Tower, with a concealed entrance (hint: look for the hat). (Image from Bart Kowalksi) Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised to literally open the wall and step in to this swanky place, modeled after secret speakeasy bars during the 1920's prohibition era. But back on topic. I've especially compiled a list of some of the best secret doorways spotted during my perusal of the the wonderful world of Internetdom for all my readers. 1) Secret passage in a library: Opening up to.. a table set for tea! Divine. A cuppa, anyone? (Source: Simon Brown Photography) 2) Secret panel in wardrobe leading to a Narnia-themed playroom: No, they didn't.. This nine-year-old has got to be one of the luckliest little girls in the world! Her parents actually constructed a wardrobe leading into Narnia for her! Hahahha! The author at io9 suggests sealing up the back panel of the wardrobe as the kid gets old so that she is psychoed into believing that she is completely insane for having imagined stepping through her wardrobe into Narnia as a child, only she did. Hahahah T_T it's a pretty cruel joke, but you gotta admit, it's hilarious.. (Source: io9) 3) Anne Frank's Secret Annex: Possibly the most famous hidden door in history. The movable bookshelf which concealed the entrance to the Secret Annex where Anne Frank hid with her family from the Nazis during WWII. Constructed by Father Voskuijl, the warehouse manager, Anne Frank wrote in her diary on August 21, 1942, “Now our Secret Annex has truly become secret…Mr. Kugler thought it would be better to have a bookcase built in front of the entrance to our hiding place. It swings out on its hinges and opens like a door. Mr. Voskuijl did the carpentry work. (Mr. Voskuijl has been told that the seven of us are in hiding, and he's been most helpful.),” This secret entryway is available for view at its original premise at the Anne Frank Museum at Prinsengracht 263. To mark its 50th anniversary, the museum has created the Secret Annex Online where you can examine the bookcase here. (Source: Anne Frank Museum) 4) The secret door at the library of the St. Florian’s Monastery (Source: David Cuartielles) 5) Secret Entrance to a Hidden Pub at the offices of Steelhead Partners: Taking after-work drinks to a whole new (hidden) level (Source: carimullaney) 6) Secret Sauna in Martha's Vineyard Summer Home: Designed by Robin Pelissier, this secret sauna hideout in the bathroom of Martha's Vineyard Summer Home in Boston wins the prize for a modern twist on the rather dated idea of hidden doors. I have a feeling vacationing here would make a great getaway. (Source: Robin Pelissier) 7) The Home Theater Ticket Booth Hidden Door: Brought to you by the imaginative minds at Creative Building Resources, this vintage ticket booth adds a hidden door to your home theater room by making it look like an old school ticketing both. The front glass panel is cut for the speak through and ticket slot. It even comes with programmable scrolling LED sign built into the top of the frame, wooden inlays and recessed lighting. The interior can be accessed by a full sized cabinet door at the back of the booth. (Source: CBR) 8) One of the secret doors of the Stift Admont library, Austria: Looks absolutely dreamy. I have no idea where the stairs leads, but I sure would like to find out. (Source: Olympia LeTan)
Hidden room in the library. I've always wanted to have secret rooms or secret passages in my home. Probably has something to do with my nerdiness, but I think this secret room in the library is perfect.

High Gloss Library Designer Todd Klein used high gloss paint colors in this New York apartment. The library's high-gloss brown walls play up the grid pattern of the bookshelves, derived from a design by architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen. Pillows in Ixtapa by Jacques Bouvet et Cie make a handsome, well-worn chesterfield sofa look even more comfortable and inviting.

This isn't what I picture my library in my dream home to look like, but it reminds me to keep dreaming of a library (and I like the fireplace!) (in my mind: french windows, red walls, white trim and shelving, fireplace, two comfy reading chairs, a small writing desk, great lighting - both natural and artificial - and with a secret entrance. see previous photo : )
