We are book-lovers in The Doll House, books ancient and modern:
literature, history, design, architecture, poetry, topography, philosophy, politics, cookery, art, crafts, antiques, biography, gardening...............When we're out and about every antiquarian, second-hand or high street book shop draws us inside.
Consequently, finding storage for the books is an ongoing activity. They are to be found in almost every room of the house, including, of course, the attic. In the living room, however I have decided to hide them behind curtained glass cupboards. People seem to either love or hate this solution.
I am quite happy with this way of presenting a calm exterior while hiding the interior chaos.
