I'd go with a different color scheme and furniture style, but I LOVE the built-in book cases and the nook they create!

Smart Ideas for Small Spaces

A cozy sitting area in the dining room includes Rogers & Goffigon velvet tufted chairs from Bungalow Classic that sandwich a vintage table lacquered with a custom stone top. Custom draperies made from a Nancy Corzine silk through Allan Knight Associates frame the view.

Built-in bookcases were added in the family room to display the family’s books, accessories and photos, and a cozy banquette was nestled into one wall.

I REALLY like this idea. for the right room ~!~ A DOUBLE-SIDED BOOKCASE as a room divider. Separates the living and dining areas of decorator Alex Papachristidis’s apartment in Manhattan . I could use something like this in a bookcase!

Oh Bookshelves…

I don't LOVE the rug. but I think the green curtain, built-in shelves filled with books and the (presumably) sliding ladder are wonderful. Its missing a fire place, lots of cozy blankets and an oriental rug!

I've seen a lot of color-coordinated bookshelves, but I like how this one is organized chaos (but how on earth are they going to find the books!).

Beautiful built in reading nook

This playful blue makes this small reading corner feel like its own roomy space. The trim is painted Van Courtland Blue by Benjamin Moore. RELATED: 25 Relaxing and Cozy Reading Corners

I'd love to have a cozy break nook for reading jewelry books, thinking, drinking tea/eating, taking a break, and large enough for a yoga mat somewhere.... I guess a good spot to meet w/ clients too.

A former closet was transformed into a double-height library, complete with a reading nook and a rolling ladder . Perfect for children who love to read.

Reading nook.

Interior Design: place books on shelf. place chair next to books. place lamp next to chair. repeat until house is full.

Wonderful book filled room, cute little cupboard up there too
