This is how I want to be welcomed into a home, with books, books and more books.
This will fit right into that Mad Hatter Tea Party themed room you're planning!
If you haven't got a human living under your stairs why not fill the space with books about a small magical human who did spend some time living under the stairs.
That furniture looks appropriately cozy for curling up with a book. I also appreciate the non-shelved stacks of reading material within easier reach. Looks like the way I live.
A simple solution to a lack of storage. It also works as a hand rail and a place to hang your handwashing to dry.
I'm pretty good at identifying my books by appearance. I should see if I can make this work.
That ceiling is lovely to look at when lying on the floor reading and pausing to let a passage sink in for a moment.
There better be springboards to launch into the center cubbies. That's where I'm hiding, check before you vault into my quiet place.
