“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.” – George RR Martin

Owning a home library conjures up feelings of excitement as well as promises of comfort, privacy and growth. Imagine walking in to find an almost forgotten world, where light, furnishings and scented books hold the collective key to diving into unique experiences of the mind. Whenever faced with someone’s home library, I avidly scan titles in search of that distinct feeling of comfort: aesthetic, sensory-based and promising. Classic library design holds the key to that specific feeling. As soon as you enter a classic home library, you bask in the ambiance of this promise of adventure, romance and transcendence. This dedicated space in your home is the fantastic realm of your imagination entangled with each author’s strain of though. When Groucho Marx said:“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book” he might have been thinking about a dream home library like the ones you’re about to see. And trust me, details will stick with you for a long time.
