Home (Room – Dining/Living/Kitchen)  / Feature – Small Spaces

This is an interesting concept that they have introduced to the simple box unit. I might have liked to have the kitchen side wall filled with books and once it is revealed on the other side with the fireplace there is a tv. But also when you slide the wall away there is a walkway to a bathroom.

Home – Feature (Bookshelves/Country)

I look at this picture and I think of the following:
1. I would love to cover my doors with books.
2. It is calming to look at and speaks of a wealth of knowledge and interesting finds. I should read more.
3. It feels calm and just makes you want to have a hot cup of tea with a sweet treat and delve in.

Then put it in a cottage in this location and I would be super happy!
