Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie of all time. I've loved it ever since I was a child... the storyline, the songs, the warm and fuzzy feeling I get when Belle and the Beast fall in love. But even still, I think my favorite part of the movie is when the Beast gives Belle her very own library. I can still remember seeing it for the first time. It was far more magnificent than anything I could have ever imagined. The towering walls, the winding staircases, the shelves upon shelves of colorful books-I dreamed of a day when something similar would be mine. That dream is still one I have to this day, and these designs excite me to think it could some day become a reality.
The library loft is my favorite.
Divine, isn't it?

But if the loft is not a possibility, you can get a similar effect with a wall of books in your home office.

I love this library nestled up right beside the kitchen.

Lighting is everything. Especially in a library.

It's all about the ladder. And the dramatic chartreuse curtain isn't so bad either.
Doesn't this charming room look like a place you'd like to snuggle up and read?
