This is one of the joys and complexities of living with lots of books: It seems there’s never enough space to store them. So every nook in our house doubles as a bookshelf.
This is a little snapshot of what our living room looks like in our flat! (The girl in the photograph, above, is my daughter Isabella a few years back.)
Old stools find new life as tuffets and paperback props.
(I should probably paint this one below, but I sort of like its rustic, workbench look)
I love that Cicero quote: A room without books is like a body without a soul.
