Library Lust

I have nearly 30 draft blog posts in my blogger queue and one of them was inspired by Diane von Furstenberg's library featured in the August 2010 issue of InStyle:

I literally had these tearsheets sitting on my desks for months and never scanned them but happened to come across a post on Elements of Style and Erin beat me to the punch! She had the privilege of hearing Diane speak and definitely take the time to stop by her blog for a recap of Diane's vast career.

I'm constantly editing my bookshelves and each time we've moved I've given so many books away. Our local library doesn't take book donations and I've found it's harder and harder to give away books, however I have no desire to give in and get a Nook, iPad or Kindle.

I dream of not having to get rid of books in the future and being able to store them all comfortably in my home library. When I was a kid and saw the scene of the Beast's library in Beauty and Beast I could totally relate to Belle gasping when she saw it:

Another real-life library I lusted after recently was featured in High Gloss magazine. Similar to Lonny, High Gloss is a digital shelter magazine. Isn't this spectacular?:

Any other library's to share?


  1. It's not a home library but while in Amsterdam I visited the OBA and thought it was the most beautiful and well organized library I had ever seen.

  2. I LOVED the Bell library scene TOO!
