I visited this year’s Spring Homearama at Eagle’s Nest in Virginia Beach. While most of the show was the same-ol’-same-ol’, there was one feature that truly stood out. This little gem of a private library:
I cannot say enough good things about this reading nook. The deep, spacious shelves are a book-collector’s dream. (That’s right – not all of us have converted to e-readers.) The lighting in this room is excellent – just the right intensity and easy on the eyes. Plus, there is a reasonable amount of wall space to display a favorite piece of artwork or two.
Now, you may be thinking that this is a rather run-of-the mill reading nook. I would submit to you that it is not. One only needs to step back and take in the full picture to truly understand the genius of this arrangement. This little library has something that most other rooms in the house lack. In fact, that one feature is so important, it instantly increases the amount of time a person can spend in this room.
Is it a refrigerator?
Is it an oven?
Is it a bed?
Is it a swimming pool?
No, but that would actually be kind of cool.
Is it a pantry well-stocked with PopTarts and Lil’ Debbie Snack Cakes?
How much fatter do you want America to be?
Well, what the heck is it [you must be asking by now]?
…it’s a toilet!
Aaaaaaaand, you’re welcome.
