Last week when I visited the Heide Gallery, (read here), the original site for the gallery, the house in which artists and founders, Sunday & John Reed lived, had a room with 3 walls filled with shelving and books. Books about anything and everything - religion, art, science, politics, classics... rows and rows of books. Not arranged in any particular order that I could see, but it really made me consider looking for a new home with a sitting room to be dedicated to books and reading and of course, discussion of said books.
If I did find a new home I would definitely love a space like this one below - a humungous ceiling with a wall filled to to the brim with books and heaps of lovely natural light! And yes, it would be mandatory that you need a ladder to reach the very top shelves! Isn't this room great? The only thing I would change would be the chairs perhaps - maybe a sofa. A huge soft sofa like a Flexform Groundpiece with a very deep seat and a wide arm so that I could rest my cup of tea on - yep, I could see myself there - could you?
Or... maybe I just need to join a book club? hmmm, certainly a cheaper option! No, I don't have time for that either... grrr.
Okay, let's all go back to our reading then...
