. . . swoon . . .

I have found my perfect place on Earth!
I even sent this photo to all of my children this morning, with this message,

"Oh, my Goodness! The room of my dreams!

. . . . . . sigh . . . . . . I knew you would understand . . . . . . ."

and they did!

I can't get over it, and I keep going back to look at it! Besides the obvious . . . do you want to know the other attributes that this room possesses to make it the most wonderful single room in the world?

It's in Paris. Enough said? But there's even more! It's for rent! For holidays.

If you go, you'll inhale it for me won't you? {Click on the photograph for a link to the website where it is listed.}

Oh, and I didn't find it, I can not take credit . . . somebody else is planning a trip, and she didn't even know she was speaking to my heart . . . I ran across it here: The Bohemian Season. Smart girl. . . .

. . . and when I recreate this room in my house . . . sigh . . . I'm going to include perfectly aged objects like these, don't you think? . . .

. . . from my daughter's Etsy shop. Letter Slot from England, which makes it especially romantic to an anglophile lover of books and letters like, moi . . .

. . . I don't even know where she is finding these amazing sign letters . . . but I love 'em.

{I've included direct links in the photos, in case you wanna check 'em out.}

Meanwhile, I'm going to print that top photo and dream about it. :)

~ much love!


  1. I am with you! I am so looking for a room for my books!!! How cool are the comfy seats the light and all the room for books!! Woo-hoo!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!
    Hugs, Lisa

  2. Debbie, you could have a lot of fun creating a room just like that one. You could enjoy it with your hubby!!
    Have a nice week working out your plans for the room....Blog yours when you are finished with it...sandi

  3. Hi Debbi, I'm so glad you loved that room! It does look so cozy doesn't it? It would feel just like staying in a lovely home. I too have a "thing" for library rooms and hope to have a house with one someday. For now I just have a wall of bookshelves from Ikea!

  4. what an incredible room! i hope you
    get to see it in real life!

  5. Oh my! Might I join you in Paris?

  6. I laid in bed last night, and had trouble falling asleep . . . thinking about that room . . . Do you think I can accomplish that is our house? Only real expensenwould be furnishings. :) I've got the books!

  7. Oh my!
    I wonder how many books about birds are tucked away on those shelves? :)
    Do hope you travel there, someday... In dreams for now~
    Wishing you all the best!

  8. A perfectly fabulous room...a place to read, think, enjoy and I love it!
