I should begin by saying that our house would be filled with build-ins if Robert would let me get away with it. (Hey, we have to take turns being the voice of reason.) I love libraries, books and bookshelves… Robert can attest to the first words out of my mouth upon seeing our house being “build-in”. I have spent many nights with a measuring tape, the laptop, and the Ikea website. So when I see a picture of someone else’s space filled with books I can’t help but instinctually save the image for inspiration (or to use as a desktop background, or just to look back on and drool over later), they just get me like that. I only wish I had the links for the images I saved while reading blogs and Google searching on my phone! Robert once likened the photo gallery on my phone to a Pottery Barn catalog.

And for a wrap up of where I am convinced we need build-ins of our own…
What is it about your house, or someone else’s houses, that makes you go weak at the knees? Are you a bibliophile like me?
