A reading nook incorporated into the library is a very charming idea, especially when you have a large window with a glorious view. Surrounded by tall shelves, filled with books, instantly induces a sense of coziness. But grand window or not, this idea is a great one for making use of a narrow space, that otherwise might be wasted due to its awkward size. So if you have a small narrow space you don’t know what to do with, consider setting up a cozy bench (preferably with storage capabilities) and keeping it company with some tall bookshelf companions.

Saying Goodbye at Penn Station, 1944

Roy Pinney


In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount.
