A fancy

We have a little nook upstairs and we weren't sure what to do with it. Office? Sitting area? Expand the bathroom? Then my friend Sylke suggested a library. Excellent idea! We have 8 billion kids books and now that the playroom is downstairs and bedrooms up I wasn't sure where to put them.

I'l thinking some wall display shelves like these, I will change out the displayed books each week. Like they do at the public library

Gonna need a plush rug for floor reading. These are all from

I know everything's looking pretty neutral and grey but the BOOKS will be the colour and the art. There are so many beautifully illustrated children's books....
