Bookworm love ...

Studying photos of inspiring bookcases has fueled my bookworm fantasies. For days on end, I've been confined at home trying to kick a nasty respiratory virus. The good news is that I've had lots of time on the couch to revisit some of my favorite design magazines and re-imagine the walls around me.

Every one of the spectacular bookcases featured in these publications are tall, dark and handsome. That's always attractive to me!

While some shelving units are well planned and organized, others are a bit unruly. I'm really fond of bookcases that appear to have a voracious appetite for tattered tomes. I always speculate that there's an absolutely intriguing reader/homeowner just beyond the camera's gaze.

I particularly love this setting. The units above remind me of those in the Paris atelier of writer/publisher Jim Haynes, an American expat and extraordinary dinner host.

The calming butterscotch and cocoa colors above are perfect paint treatments for the bookcases and the room design schemes.

A zing of red and yellow enliven the libraries and their contents in cheery reading habitats above and below.

Hand me that novel, pour the decongestant and pass me the box of tissues. I'm ready for another afternoon of bookworm love.
