A library in a townhouse in Brussels, Belgium. Beautiful dark wood, floor-to-very-high-ceiling bookcases with closed cabinets below cover one wall, and the library ladder is clearly necessary in this room.
My dream is to have a room(s) filled with books -- books as decorations! But if this was my room, I'd have to straighten that stack there on the right. Love that cozy chair/ottoman! Perfect in this reading room.
