Build-In Envy

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…

LibraryBehold our future build-in.  Otherwise known as the first project on the list when we have money. But more on that later.

Dining RoomWe may or may not have plans for a build-in around the doorway here.

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?

    I have built in envy too. I would give anything to have a house with cute built-in nooks. It’s a must-have in my next place.

      Oh definitely a must have! We’re doing that whole wall in the library, aaaaand just about anywhere else that “needs” one, haha!

      Thanks for checking out the blog!

  2. I love our built ins! They are so great. And, because we built and designed them, they fit everything we need. http://ourhumbleabowed.wordpress.com/the-grand-tour/

  3. Jealousy. If I could I would just line all my walls with bookshelves.
