These 10 Home Libraries Are For People Who Really, Really Love Their Books

As lovely as it can be to come home to a good meal and good company, there's really nothing like coming home to spend some quality time with a good read -- especially if it's in your very own library. And whether you're a newspaper in the morning kind of person or someone who's constantly growing their classics collection, it's difficult to argue that these libraries from our friends at are anything but where literary dreams meet decor dreams.

Where could you see yourself getting lost in a good book?

Nothing makes books pop like sleek white bookshelves.
For a classic look, deep tones and rich woods are the way to go.
No need to take an entire room with fab modern shelves like these...
...or chic under-stair storage like this.
No library is complete without a sliding ladder.
Though if you have the space (and the books to fill it), use it.
Key accent pieces and a couple of cozy chairs are always a good idea... is a fireplace to cozy up next to with a great book.
And who wouldn't love reading with a view?
Because any room with a wall of books can be paradise.
