Dreaming of Home: 8 Dope Home Library Ideas

Are you thinking about ways to decorate your home, well the new series, Dreaming Of Home, will give you many ideas! Are you a geek or a nerd like me? Well here are 8 Home Library Ideas for you to see.


Hey Beautiful People!

I really miss blogging on a regular and I think I got back into my groove. Cheers!

Over the past year I have been working on becoming a minimalist in every way of my life but more specifically with the things that I have. As I packed up to move, I did not realize how much stuff that I had. I was mad because I am like why did I even buy this! I think about the money I could have saved on stupid purchases. I told myself I would never have so much stuff again! So I got rid of a lot of stuff. Still need to get rid of more but I am doing pretty well.

One thing that was the absolute hardest thing to scale back on was books. I had about 500 books and I love books. I always have dreamt of having a huge library in my home, and the dream is still there but I have to get the home you know! The reason I let go of so many books is because they are heavy and expensive to ship. I think though, that I am around a 100 books. The collection begins again!

Are you a book lover? Why do we keep books if we are never going to read them again? I just think they are a beautiful reminder of so many stories, thoughts and opinions that are unique. They are also, just so beautiful to look at.

On a home design level, I would love for the library to be the focal point of the room. Whether it is a headboard, or one of the walls lined with beautiful books and decorative items in between books.

So for the future, here are 8 ideas to think about when building a home library.
