Today, while trekking around dreary New York City, we wondered: what would we do for a cozy fireplace to sit in a library with a crackling fire and walls lined with old books, the smell of musty paper just hinting at the tips of our nose. What we’d do to sit with a great big book (sorry, Kindle) and a big glass of red wine, our feet tucked under our knees, wrapped in our favorite throw blanket.
Our Favorite Library Looks
This kind of weather makes us yearn for the warmth of darker, moodier spaces–peppered with overstuffed leather armchairs, industrial lighting and burning candles. We’ve pretty much given up hope of ever having a working fireplace in our apartment while we live here in NYC, but here’s what we can hope for: a library like the ones below. One stacked with books from floor to ceiling. A place where we could shut off our phones and lose ourselves in a book. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Here’s our favorite library looks we’re crushing on.
