Sleeping with books

Morgan Puett library bedroom Mildred's Lane

“I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.”

~Anna Quindlen, “Enough Bookshelves,” New York Times, 7 August 1991. This room is in Mildred’s Lane, the Pennsylvania artist’s colony that J. Morgan Puett and partner built over many years. Thanks to kellylynnwaters for the photo, which is originally from J. Morgan Puett via pjb.

  1. Oh yes… I’ve mentioned it before but I’ll mention it again. My dream house has one major wall that everything stems from and it is a bookshelf from floor to ceiling traversing the entire house. sigh…. one day one day.
