The Bookshelf Project #18

This week's pictures of bookshelves are from Paul, a doctor from Suffolk UK. Here are two pictures, shot at different angles, of his gorgeous bookshelf.



I'm getting a very classic and homey vibe Paul's bookshelves. And that table with the chairs is just the perfect spot to have your coffee in the morning, don't you think?

Wow, I love the little table and chairs. The whole room seems to go perfectly together. It looks like either a study, or a den. If I had a den, it would look just like that, but throw pillows strewn on the floor though, in place of the cute table set.

Hi, UW! Thanks for dropping by! Yes, everything does seem to be coordinated. I love it!

Vivienne said...

That is a very British household library!

Peter S. said...

Hi, Vivienne! Indeed it is!

SariJ said...

Stunning! Though the room is dark it has a very warm feeling to it. It looks like the perfect home library.

Peter S. said...

Hi, SariJ! I know! It does exude a warm feeling!

That room looks very inviting. I can just see a red chair in the corner that would be perfect to curl up in with a good book!

Charlie said...

There, again, is my first lust: floor-to-ceiling bookcases. It looks like the same old problem is about to occur, however: no more room for books.

Peter S. said...

@eye_spy: I think we all are jealous of Paul's bookshelves.

@Myckyee: Yes, it is very inviting.

@Charlie: Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves are the best!

How wonderful to have an entire wall of books! And I love the wall color...very elegant looking. Think there's a fireplace in there as well, so it's a perfect library!

Peter S. said...

Hi, Alexia! Yes, I love how elegant everything looks.

What a greta space. I would have to position my chair so I could stare at the books.... :)

Peter S. said...

Hi, Sheila! I can live in Paul's room forever!

I tlove the dining table and chairs as much as I do the bookshelves what a wonderful room to while away the hours in.

Peter S. said...

Hi, Simon! If I had a room such as this one, I doubt if I would have the courage to leave it!

Tina said...

OH wow....if I can believe my eyes, over in the corner of the brick, that appears to be a fireplace. If so, this is even more perfect than mine. I love the dark wood with the red walls, very elegant. Thanks again Peter for showing us how diverse we are.

Peter S. said...

Hi, Tina! I should be thankful to you guys. You all have amazing bookshelves!

StephanieD said...

It looks like a luxurious home that has "Serious about books" all over it!

Happy belated Thanksgivign, Peter!

Peter S. said...

Hello, StephanieD! Very luxurious indeed!

Suko said...

The room looks warm and cozy and oh-so-inviting. All those wonderful books!

Peter S. said...

Hi, Suko! Yes, especially since there's a fireplace. It's the perfect getaway!

Is it weird that I just drooled looking at the photos of that bookcase? Because I totally did. Just awesome.

We once lived in a Victorian house where we had one room fitted out as a study with made to measure bookshelves that looked just like Paul's. I still miss it ten years later!
