Library Retreat

I read somewhere that a home library is an expression of your personality. It’s not just a space for book enthusiasts but for relaxing and stimulating your mind or an area for board games. I’ve always wanted a home library, that special space for reading surrounded by my favorite books - coming from a book lover. In today’s world, even if e-books are increasingly popular nothing compares to reading a good book. You don’t have to have a large mansion, or even a dedicated room to achieve a beautiful library. A hallway is a good place for books or even under a staircase or a corner built-in book shelf near your window. Here are some of my favorite home libraries
