Interior Design Home Library Ideas

All book-lovers have a dream. It’s a simple one, nothing entirely ridiculous or unachievable. No mansion in Malibu for us (unless someone’s offering. Anyone?).

Nope, all we want is a place to read. A magical home library filled with books, cosy seats to curl up and get lost in a book in, and reading lights.

Our home library will smell of old paper. It will be filled with blankets. All the books will be organised according to our very specific system.

It’ll be a while before we finally have our happy place, thanks to extortionate housing prices and people’s unwillingness to pay us to eat large quantities of nachos while watching TV.

Until then, we’ll take vicarious joy in browsing through other people’s incredible reading spots.

1. Like this one, with sweet rustic vibes.

2. Or this one, that’s all sleek and monochrome.

3. We will always, always dream of one day having our own library ladder.

 

4. Oh, and a spiral staircase would be nice.

5. We’re not asking for a mansion, just a peaceful little area surrounded by books.

6. But if anyone wants to throw in the mansion, too, that’d be fine with us.

7. Or maybe a converted barn. You know, whatever’s available.

Great layout for a personal library. #openthedoors it makes the room very welcoming. #interiordesign #library

8. Really, all we want is somewhere lovely to stack our books.

9. Decorated with armchairs to cosy up in.

10. And, again, a ladder really would be ideal.

11. Even a step-ladder. Totally fine.

12. In our dreams, we lounge on a chaise longue.

Wow! I want and need this in my life- my little desk next to my bed is filling up fast with the books I have. I need more room!📚#LiveHappy #10PagesOfGreatBook #HomeLibrary #DreamBoard

13. We read books in a cool breeze.

14. We sip tea and snuggle with a blanket and a novel.

17. And preferably colour-coded.

 

18. Or alphabetised. We’re not here to start a fight.
