I think I’ve got a lot of wishes stored up right now, so I decided to give myself a theme. Our lovely hosts at The Broke and the Bookish suggested listing some #librarygoals so I’m just going to make my list a detailed description of my perfect library. Get on that, would you, book genie?
- Floor to ceiling mahogany built-ins
- One of those sliding brass library ladders
- A chaise lounge (because it’s like a chair and a sofa had a baby and it’s the very best piece of furniture there is) with super soft velvety upholstery
- Some antique 1920s lighting: brass lamps, milk glass shades, the works
- Piles of cozy blankets, plush carpet and any other soft surfaces the book genie cares to throw in there
- A built-in tea station with an electric kettle, all of which can be reached without getting up from the chaise
- A big window with floaty curtains and a window seat
- Some kind of organizational system I’m not just too lazy to stick to
- Art mixed in on the shelves with the books
- All my favorite books in my favorite editions (i.e. probably the prettiest covers because I like art with my books, okay?!)
This whole list is super absurd because I currently don’t even have an apartment, let alone a room just for books. But someday! Book genie willing. 😉 What are your bookish wishes?
