Hmmm, I'm presuming this is a bathroom, practical, maybe not, but I like it. I'll take a bookcase anywhere, anytime.

I hope that all those books are about personal hygiene!

only a movie said...

Is it a bedroom? I remember some bedrooms in Europe that had basins/sinks. Sort of like it. But I'm a book geek.

I really like it. Odd, but interesting.

built in bookcases rock!

love it. it looks like greece... a small room in a hotel perhaps?

If I remember correctly, this is a house on Majorca. I'm not sure the context of the photo. Is it a library in a bath or a sink in a library? I thought I'd leave it up to my Dumplings to interpret.

And M gets a gold star for the comment of the day.

library in a bathroom? well at least you have something to read while you're dropping the kids at the pool

Meh.

hello gorgeous said...

If there's a lav in there, then no; I don't want to think about where those books have been.

M--I was thinking something similar: "I bet those are all dirty books!"

I don't know what to think about this except that it seems wholly unAmerican somehow. It looks Moorish, but I don't get it.

Raina said...

I went back and forth about posting it, lucitebox, because I didn't have a wider shot of the space to give context. I thought maybe someone could shed some light on it. If that is a bathroom, more power to them.

I'm with Only a Movie, think its a sink in bedroom.

If its in a bathroom complete with toilet, could the books be handy upmarket emergency loo roll?

You know once I spent a summer in London doing a high school course (yes, I was that girl who did summer school so I could graduate early). Anyhoo, there was a sink in my dorm room, and it simultaneously grossed me out but also made a great place to pee when I didn't feel like going up three flights of creepy twisty stairs to the only bathroom in the whole building. Which of course then grossed me out even more.

So I think I an AGAINST sinks where their shouldn't be sinks. They just bring out the worst in me.

I love bookshelves in every room too, but if this is a bathroom, I worry about the books getting ruined from moisture, if there is a shower nearby. Perhaps it is just a sink for the OCD compulsively clean reader?

Citysage, you crack me up!

Alexis said...

I agree with Sherri--I would constantly worry about moisture. I do approve of having bookshelves wherever you can fit them, though.
