Library in progress

Having nice wall-papers in a library is perhaps a bit of a waste, but surely having a library doesn’t mean that my bookshelves can’t spread out in all the other rooms too? It was our first time putting-up wall-papers and it took way longer than I expected, but I believe it was worth it in the end, it has given the whole room a summer feeling.
Still some work on the bookshelves but the reading chair is starting to look cozy already.
And if I ever get bored of my read I could always watch the view instead.

    1. Thank you, I think so too! And after some years in a place where we couldn’t put a single new nail in the walls I must say that it feels really great to be able to change things to the way we want them.

  1. How great to have your own library! Living in London where space is limited, such a thing would be a luxury unheard of for most people. The view is wonderful as well!


    1. Thank you! The Norwegian countryside certainly has some benefits, although it also means that the nearest good book store is more than 2 hours away, so arguably I need a library more ๐Ÿ˜‰ (at least if I don’t want to read in Norwegian).

  2. It must be such a relief to have your own space to have as you want it (if you see what I mean!). Wallpaper used well is a delight, but it is a risky process โ€“ too much bold repeated detail and it looks fussy, too little and it’s underwhelming โ€“ but from your photos it looks both subtle and in keeping. So pleased for you. And books โ€“ what’s not to like? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! It really is a relief, we feel so lucky! We were slightly worried that the wallpapers might seem too busy, but we know the designer and figured that we would be happy to have one of her papers even if it wouldn’t turn out to be a perfect fit, and in the end it worked even better than we had hoped for.

  3. Beautiful, I love wall paper and your library looks fresh and breezy, perfect for reading. And those shelves? You must be having fun organising your books – have you still got a shelf for the most important women authors (I think you had a much more concise title for it)?
