As my wife would probably tell you, home design isn’t usually my cup of tea. But I couldn’t help myself on this one: the Accredited Online Colleges blog (I know, random—thanks to the good folks at Shelf Awareness for digging it up) posted this awesome slideshow/list of 20 celebrity libraries to die for.
Leather binding! Oriental rugs! Mahogany! Fireplaces! Ahhh….
While I’m sure it would be lovely to sink into one of the couches in the Hearst library, my faves here would have to be Nigella and Keith Richards—something about the clutter makes them look like places you’d actually want to read, instead of just admire. Though I do like the clean look of Jane Fonda’s room—feels like a great space for escaping from the world.
On the other hand, what’s up with Sting, Rod, and Michael and their stuffy, faux British-manor reading rooms? Not exactly sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, guys. And while I guess Karl Lagerfeld’s space is meant to be utilitarian, you’d think a fashion designer would come with something a little more… attractive?
Thoughts? Picks? Pans? Anyone know other celeb libraries worth checking out? If so, please link away…
