My Dream Room

This photo of Nigella Lawson in her private library in London made me deep green with envy.  I have my dear friend Jenna to thank for sending it my way.  Can you even imagine owning that many beautiful books?  I’ve already saved the image in my “dream home” file.  Someday ladies, someday!

    Swoon! I have to feature this photo on my own blog! I remember an interview with Nigella from years ago, in O magazine, in which she lists her favorite books. She came across as fiercely intelligent and extremely well-read, and her book choices were so interesting. I would love to sit down and have a drink with her….and Emma Thompson (another intelligent, well-read lady).

    OMG! This is every dream come true! quintessence didn’t that scene in Beauty and the Beast make you want to cry?! Must make that room a reality someday…as well as that castle in Scotland on the north sea :)

    fabulous, but I have to let you know that she is selling her London home, apparently she and her husband are tired of the upstairs/next (not sure) neighbors who are doing some kind of building repairs, the house is on sale for 36 million pounds ($54m) better be fabulous like that library!!! :)

    The home library swoon-worthy as is Nigella…it brings me back to your girl~crush post…I LOVE her. She is beautiful (it appears inside as well as out) and I adore watching her cook and listening to her melodic voice!

    I could tell that profile was Nigella – speaking of Girl Crush, I could watch her eat all day! She makes whatever she cooks look like the tastiest thing ever. I blame my booty on her chocolate mousse. Totally worth it.

    p.s. I have seen Mr. Armour all over Pinterest, (from wedding shoot)! xo

    I am in complete agreement — Nigella’s library is my dream room too. All of those books and the piles on the floor too? It’s gorgeous.

    So many reasons to be envious of Nigella….but I just can’t.

    She is fabulous and even more so is her library. I am aching for wall to wall bookshelves. Oy.

    Well. Let me just wipe the drool from my mouth and say that this photo is amazing. Book heaven, I think. Plus, it makes me feel slightly less inclined to worry of my own bookish clutter…
