With the winter winds howling and another 12″ snowstorm predicted for tonight, this afternoon I just want to retreat to the library with a good book (currently, I am reading A Room With a View by E.M. Forster).

Although it’s tiny, our library does have the essentials — some lovely built-in bookcases I had done years ago, a squashy sofa, a multitude of pillows, and a wonderful reading lamp (absolutely no TV allowed in this room). With a cup of strong tea, it’s my own personal slice of heaven!

As much as I love the library, a little sprucing up is necessary from time to time (after all, I do have three kids and several wee beasties). Since the room opens onto the heavily trafficked kitchen, I would like some continuity of style. So, I’ve researched a few pieces (above) that would mesh quite well with my existing, heavily equestrian-influenced decor. Several are quite affordable and a few will be placed on the Wish List. After all, Christmas is only 315 days away!
