May Photo A Day : Day 18: Want

I thought long and hard, what do I really, really Want! I am focusing on materialistic things so that I can easily get pictures :)

A bigger house, a bigger car, more money, more vacations, designer clothes, shoes, jewellery? But I really don't care much about any of those things because there is really no end to 'bigger' things.

What I Want is a wonderful Home Library. It has been communicated well and enough number of times to the hubby. Since he sometimes cribs about books and magazines all over our place, so it was easier to get him around the idea. With my own home library, most of the books and magazines will be here. 

I have put together a mood board for my dream home library. The photographs have been sourced from Pinterest and Google. The image is a Screen Capture. 

I love the cozy feel of the room, with enough outside light and focused lights for reading. I have added some accessories which I love - paper print cushion covers, colourful framed Maps, framed famous quotes from books and interesting bookends.

Needless to say, I am passionate about books. I have much more than I can ever read, and I keep buying more and more despite the fact that I receive a lot of books for reviews too. But is there a thing called enough books for a book lover? It is a legacy or a retirement plan, call whatever you may :)

    1. Isn't it? Just looking at it makes me feel so good. Right now in my current abode there isn't space to dedicate a room, so this plan is for the next house that we buy. So, I actually WANT bigger home, you can say :)
      And thank you so much. It really is a dream to have a home library.

  8. U have touched a chord here.

    When I was still studying I used to dream about how I will start earning and staying alone. In my dreams I always visualised living in a clean 2 BHK house with one room dedicated as a library!!! Always!!!

    I did live my dream but back then my collection was small..now that I have a bigger collection there is hardly any place left!!!

    May you get what you want :)

    1. Arre you are going to move to your new place. Why not make space for books right now. I have bookshelves in all my rooms but now they are overflowing from their too, and I like to keep them properly (flaunt you can say).
      Until the time I move to a bigger house, I will probably have to buy my third bookshelf!

    1. I looked at so many pictures and had almost given up because nothing appealed to me too much. Then I saw this. It is gorgeous. When I have my home library, it will be something like this.
