Library Love

I owe you all a sincere apology. I've been a little subdued lately. When writers are sequestered in a room on their own for months on end, day after day, week after week, they tend to become a little, well, quiet. What's that old saying? You can learn anything locked in a room on your own, except for life itself... I always loved that quote. Lots of writer suffer from the isolation. I remember reading that Stephen King believed that it was important that all writers stop after 2000 words each day and go outside to remember the world again. Hemingway was religious about stopping at midday and going out fishing or drinking. (Not that I will be doing that, but Key West would be a fantastic place to ride a bike around the bars!) Even Maggie Alderson now closes her computer and does drawing classes in the afternoons. I don't know how they do it. I feel guilty if I not still writing at 2AM each night. But I'm planning to enrol in some courses with some friends this spring. The old CAE has some fantastic ones this season: Macaron Making; Botanical Art Workshops; a course on The Californian Bungalow Home; The History of The Orient Express; Melbourne's Hidden Architectural Secrets; Photographing Melbourne; Laneways of Melbourne, and (my favourite) The City of Literature course, which takes you to the city's hidden bookshops. They sound fantastic, don't they? Details here – www.cae.edu.com In the meantime, here are some lovely literary visions to inspire you all, in the form of some truly delightful libraries. Diane Keaton's library, which wowed the design world when it was featured in Architectural Digest. When Ms Keaton bought this Spanish Colonial Revival-style home in Beverly Hills, she immediately turned the entrance into a library. It was a savvy move. Now, the first impression guests receive is a welcoming and intelligent space, rather than a room full of boots and a painting or two. She's since sold this home, and bought another to store all her books in. Hopefully the new owners have retained this space as a library. It would be a shame if they converted it back to a boot room! I love Diane Keaton, and not just for her architectural knowledge. I'm looking forward to her two new films, Darling Companion and The Wedding, scheduled to appear in October. Fashion designer Paul Smith's library. Another bibliophile, Paul often incorporates books as part of his stores' merchandising. Anna Wintour's library at her Long Island / Hamptons hideaway. I do wonder if Ms Wintour ever has time to read? Karl Lagerfeld's library in his Left Bank residence. Now Karl does make time for reading! Have you seen the photos of his bedroom? There are books instead of pillows. Sarah Jessica Parker's library. This room is in a New York house that she and Matthew Broderick are selling. The magazine stand is an intelligent touch. The Manhattan library of book publisher Suzanne Slesin, owner of Pointed Leaf Press. When I saw this space recently, I recognised it from an old ad I loved as a young girl. It was a Pottery Barn ad that was set in a library. I didn't know what Pottery Barn was at the time. (We don't have it in Australia.) I just loved the library! Here's the ad, below. Look at the initials – ABC – above the left door. I'm not sure what this extraordinary library is? Does anyone know? It is a metaphor for the destruction of trees for the publishing industry? (Or even the demise of the publishing industry itself?) Is it a stage set? It's all very mysterious... Diane von Furstenberg's library at her Connecticut home, Cloudwalk. We drove past this recently. Such a gorgeous part of the world. BTW, there is an incredible story about DVF here, from the LA Times. I do feel that the writer has betrayed confidences somewhat, but it's still interesting. A beautiful olive-green library from the book Decorating With Books. I love this space, clutter and all. It looks very English. Chateau de Groussay's library, photographed by Cecil Beaton. Many library lovers consider this to be the most beautiful private library in the world. Here's another angle of Chateau de Groussay's library, from the Sotheby's catalogue. Bill Blass's library. {Source unknown.} Jackie Kennedy's library. {Again, source unknown. Forgive me. If anyone knows the credit, please notify me.} A library in a kitchen. I love this. We're considering installing a library in our kitchen / sunroom, if I can persuade my darling hubster to build it. {Source unknown.} Lindsay Coral Harper's library, as featured in Atlanta Homes. Love the ottomans and the plum colour. And my absolute favourite, although, once again, the source has been lost in the dreaded tumblr mess. (I fear the photos in the future: crediting is becoming a lost art!) Isn't this the sweetest library? Look at the little daybed near the window, the spiral staircase, the lovely mezzanine... I could happily live in this library.

Upgrade to blackout lining https://www.etsy.com/listing/163803263 ● ● ● ● ● ● ● MEASURING RECOMMENDATIONS - Always use a metal tape measure! For INSIDE mounts, measure the inside of your window frame exactly, then subtract 1/4\" to 1/2\" inch to find the closest width you need to order. The width of the shade need to be a little less than the window width, so it falls correctly. For OUTSIDE mounts, I recommend that you measure your window width. If your window is framed in wooden molding, make sure to include it in your measurement as well. Add 1 to 2 inches to this measurement. If you will install the valance onto a decorative pole, this is the valance width that you will need to order. If your window doesn't have any wood trim around it I highly recommend adding some more width. For OUTSIDE mount I would recommend decorative curtain rod with finials up to 1-1/4-inch in diameter. For INSIDE mount - spring tension rod up to 1-inch in diameter. The faux shades can be made in width increments of half-inch (1/2\" or 0.5\").
