Ultimate home libraries

January 12, 2017

Most of us have a dream room that we’d love to have in our homes one day. This might be a home gym, a butler’s kitchen, a theatre room or a pool that rivals those in five star hotels.

But for all bookworms there is one common house goal – a home library.

This is not just for the convenience of having somewhere to store their hundreds of collected books (don’t even suggest a Kindle!), the contentment that a room full of carefully coordinated books can bring or the desire to have somewhere to read in peace for hours on end – they also look amazing and can make a massive statement in your home.

Whether it’s a wall to wall bookshelf in a living area, a cozy reading nook or an entire room dedicated to your passion, we’ve gathered some of the best, most ultimate home libraries to provide you with a bit of inspiration.

This first one proves that a perfectly colour coded bookshelf can be a work of art in itself.

There’s something so peaceful about a home library with a dedicated window seat overlooking a beautiful setting. Imagine cozying up with your favourite book in these rooms as a storm lashes against the windows outside.

Except perhaps for this circular home library, which puts even the President’s Oval Office to shame.
