The best way to decorate

"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating mostly consists of building enough bookshelves." - Anna Quindlen

“I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. – Anna Quindlen

We’re settling into our new digs this weekend, so of course this wonderful Anna Quindlen quote has been on my mind.

What do you think? Agree disagree?

    You can never have enough books or bookshelves. We decided not to have a spare bedroom so I can have a library. Sadly its still not enough room for all my books. So I’m working on strategically placing walls shelves around the house. So far I’m working of a few in corners and stairways.

      I love the idea of a library in lieu of a spare room. (Although I wouldn’t mind sleeping in someone else’s library. 🙂 )

        Our library is going to be the spare room: built-in bookcases, built-in beds/window seats. The best of all possible worlds!
