Hello everyone! This evening is a rather special posting as I am going to take you into a portion of our new home…the library! We have the room to be able to have a special place dedicated for all things books and reading. I have had so many plans for this room when we decided that it was something that we wanted to look at in our new home from how I wanted the bookshelves to the little pieces that would complete the room. This is an almost finalized look at how the library turned out, all that’s missing are a couple more wall pieces (a poem and the logo of the Cosy Book Shoppe!).
Here is a general look (also a wider view at the top of the page):
The bookshelves are from Target, you can find them HERE. They are very sturdy and as you can see fit quite a few books! I love the darker finish (and this is a love that we both share and is all throughout our home)
The chair is actually from Babies R Us and is a glider. It is ridiculously comfortable and rocks and spins! A comfortable chair was one of my number one priorities with a library along with good sturdy bookshelves.
The blanket is one of my favorite touches because not only does it add to the coziness and tie together some of the other colors, but it also has writing all over and fits perfectly with the room!
I have included a brief look at some of the bookshelves and of course I have my “vintage” mini dictionary and a notebook to make notes while reading.
A few of the other touches include a wax warmer for wonderful smells to fill the room, speakers for soft music to be playing in the background, a copy of Well Read Women on display, as well as a print of a quote from Pride and Prejudice.
This is by far one of my favorite places to spend time in the house and I am in love with how it has turned out! It fits exactly what I have been wanting for a long time! I hope that you enjoyed this look into my library and I’ll be back with another exciting “look into our home” soon!
