In all my years of visiting New York, I never really experienced the reading room at the main branch of the New York Public Library. With its glowing light and history, it makes for the perfect spot for reading. When I discovered my two friends spend their saturdays reading there, I'll be honest and say I was jealous. I hope to spend a lot more time there next time around.
Despite being an architect, I don't have a finite idea of what my dream house would be. Rather, I have many random details that I would love which include....wood laminate flooring, lots of storage, exposed rafter ceilings... but most of all. I MUST have a reading room with wall to wall shelves of books, books, books. See below. I'm in love.
