Inspiration for the Library

Here are a couple of pictures I've collected as inspiration for the 'library.' Matteo and I both love reading and between us we have a pretty large collection of books. I'd like to have a whole wall covered with book shelves like in the pictures below. The first one is from Melanie Acevedo and the second is from one of my favourite shops, Cabbages and Roses.

Both of the photos are beautiful. But I especially love the first one. Warm, timeless, stylish and has depth.

Have found your blog last week, will keep popping in to see and read about your progress with your exciting new life.

Hi Sarah - just discovered you delightful blog. Love the two library pictures you posted - my favourite is the second. It would be so lovely to have a room like that with a cosy nook for curling up with a good book. Look forward to seeing the progress of your place and your wedding plans as they unfold on your blog x

Hi again! Thanks for visiting my blog. I live in Perth too like your sister! I've just been reading through your profile and there is something in each of your categories that I would definitely list as favourites of mine (I have yet to complete my profile page). I'm a teacher too :)

Hi Sarah!

I just stumbled across your blog, and I'm looking forward to seeing how you go about renovating this home. I'll be living vicariously through you. It is a dream of mine to do this, but alas, it is still far in the future. Best wishes, an enjoy!
