3. The Library. Ah, the library. Yes, I know this space is a luxury and that it's not exactly in keeping with the "not so big house" philosophy. I know it's kind of wasteful. I know that kindles and iPads may one day render huge book collections obsolete. But I don't care. I love to read (and, judging by all the book-related ideabooks, so do most of you) and I think the idea of a room dedicated entirely to books sounds incredibly romantic.
