“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” – Jorge Luis Borges
Same here, pal, same here. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own bookish paradise on Earth, because what I found while hunting for furniture and random stuff online to create my dream reading space gave me a sneak peek on what paradise, hopefully, looks like.So when the book lovers over at Arhaus, asked me to share my vision of a dream reading space or dream library as an inspiration for all the readers out there, I was thrilled.
So I decided to make a list of essentials for my personal dream reading space:
- Hardwood floor!
I don’t know why, but I’ve always thought wood flooring looked cozy; imagine throw pillows and a duvet with a cup of hot cocoa and book in hand on a rainy winter night… Will get to that later on.
- This gorgeous wallpaper
- A sectional sofa
Whether it’s for the whole reading squad or just me, myself, and my book, a sectional sofa is perfect for reading.
- This cozy red velvet plush chair
- And this antique floor lamp to go with
- A reading nook is a must
- With these bookish throw pillows
- Of course, the bookshelf that bears all my beloved books
So that’s my list! Let me know what you thought of it and if you think that I should add anything else 😉
