Books glorious Books~

" Great quote Uncle Karl! "
(errr...you know Karl Lagerfeld is my imaginary biological uncle, right?!)
Certainly an EXTRA-ordinary private library he has!
Don't we just lurrrve...the look of books in our living space?
.
~Well, for those who still don't have stacks & stacks & stacks of book collection
like my Uncle Karl, nor space for any of them,,,perhaps the 'Books Wallpaper' 
by Tracey Kendall or Y&B design would just do the trick. (shop HERE)

That first picture - wow!

I am the happy victim of books because of Kindle. Yes I'm a happy convert.

p.s. If you ever try clay pot rice in Singapore, I tried Geylang clay pot and it's pretty good!

I think I have about as many books as Uncle Karl (you and I must be related). My life gets taken over by them

Karena said...

As with David I have books everywhere, overflowing bookshelves, stacked here and there,,,,

I love books and love spending time at my favorite bookstores. I buy them when I find them interesting. It's so good to see the books sit in my shelves. I just need more time to read. Do you use iPad to read books? I don't. I enjoy touching paper pages and flipping one after another. I love the smell of books and love to feel its weight on my hands as well.

Ana Degenaar said...

Stunning! I wish I had a book-room!

Jan said...

Yes we lurve - death to the Kindle and its ilk I say.

What a shame to have to settle for the wall paper would be.

Signe said...

I love books and it's by far the best way to decorate as well in my opinion :)
Have a lovely Thursday!

Shaddy aka Cheryl said...

Unfortunately, I'm rather conservative and borrow most of the books I read from the library. I have a collection of leather-bound classics that I adore.

I fear that soon, the printing of
books will become a rarity due to the electronic age. I'm still being stubborn about that.

Krystal said...

Ok, I want book wallpaper!!

mistress maddie said...

I love this post Lenore! I hope someday to have a lovely little reading corner to disappear into! I love that first picture and the spiral staircase. Libraries and spiral staircases seem to go hand in hand, huh! Love the wallpaper idea!!! Thx hon!

Jude said...

I adore books and I can't think of a better way to decorate. Not just the look and smell, but the tactile feel of plucking any one of hundreds of volumes off shelves...can't do that with a kindle! :)

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

Thumbs down to kindle~
Thank you everyone!

Susan said...

Love the library look Lenore x

Saving Capulet said...

I am guilty of e-book therefore, I need this wallpaper :I. I'm sorry authors :((

Brandi said...

I would love to steal Karl's home -- what an amazing collection of books! And I adore that they're stacked differently than most libraries.

Sam said...

Karl! What a guy - how wonderful is his library! I bet he designed the interior himself. Books make the best furnishings I agree!

Rachel said...

oh goodness. I want. that first picture is like, exactly everything I would want in a home. right now I have a large bookcase totally full of books and a growing stack next to it. the stack is a couple feet high at this point.
