A Bookshelf That's Also A Door!! Wow!

Until now I 'thought' my ultimate bookshelf fantasy was a lovely bunch of shelves built around a doorway, or around a window.... I've always seriously fawned over those sorts of bookshelves.



Look at this....


A magical door and a bookcase all in one.

It fans the flames of that yearning I have for 'secret' things. Hidden doors, rooms no-one else knows about, undiscovered treasures, little caves full of fascinations.

This really 'had me at hello'.

P.S: I've had this sitting in my drafts folder for a while, and a few days ago I also spotted it over on Erin's great blog House Of Turquoise as part of a guest post by Coco Cozy! I think this pic will do 'the rounds' as it's so fab.



  1. love that idea - but knowing my luck a large dictionary would probably fall off and hit me on the toe each time I opened the door.

  2. Oh my goodness, I must admit that I'm completely smitten with this idea too. I am completely drawn to the concept of 'hidden' spaces and secret places ... as well of course to the loveliness of books.

    Like yourself I would need very little convincing for such loveliness to be in my home ... thanks for sharing it! :D

    PS. I love the wall colour too! :)

  3. Linda,
    I missed the door at H.O.T. so glad I saw it here. I jsut love that idea - Really cool!

  4. So amazing! I LOVE this!!! Thanks so much for the kind words and link-love! :)

  5. Lol Lee!! You're welcome Erin!! When I saw it on your blog I smiled! I'd had it sitting in my drafts for about a week, and knew you'd love it because of the colour, and then you found it anyway! :)

  6. Oh. My. Goodness. I am in LOVE! This is seriously my new favourite thing!! Oooh, I just love it!!

  7. That's a pretty cool tricky door! I would walk right pass it. It's almost like a secret door.

  8. This picture has just combined my love for built-in bookcases and secret doors. I am definitely tabbing this photo for future use!!

    Thanks for the inspiration :)

  9. I love it! I think you would have to be really careful not to slam the door though, or some books might fall off. Not that I slam too many doors. ;)
    Talk about a great use of space though!


I'm very grateful for your participation.

Until next time may your home be full of lots of love, laughter, and life!
