For those of you who love books, you probably have a collection lying around somewhere in your home, whether you cleverly use them as a coffee table, end table, store them in a bookcase, on a shelf or have a reading nook or whole library dedicated to your love affair of books. A personal home library can be a sacred space that combines relaxation with personal learning; it should be designed as an oasis, an escape from our hectic daily lives. We have gathered together a post with 50 incredible home libraries that have plenty of inspiration for various ways to design your own personal home library. Some are more traditional, while others are unique and different and will challenge your creative juices. Whatever your pleasure, make sure your space has a cozy ambiance which can include a fireplace, faux fireplace with candles, or add the right kind of lighting that can create a mood that evokes warmness. Be sure to have comfortable and relaxed seating and consider a throw for those cool nights that you want to snuggle up with a good book. Enjoy the inspiration and don’t forget to let us know which one is your favorite!
