This has absolutely got to be one of my favourite links for bookish visuals, even though it’s not a bookish site. Freshome features interesting architecture and interior designs around the world, from buildings to homes to furniture. Which means occasionally there are some pretty nifty book-related posts. Here are some of the recent ones they did.
Be literally surrounded by knowledge in this custom home library with a circular bookcase all around the living room.

This is just UTTERLY ADORABLE. Most little girls would go through the fairy tale princess phase, and what better way to make that come true with a play bed that looks like this?

As a bonus, here’s a link to my favourite non-bookish architecture at Freshome – a contemporary interior design that’s fun, colourful and just plain freaking awesome.
